Linguistics Today: Debates, Challenges and Propositions

The main objective of ABRALIN50 is to address fundamental issues for Linguistics today, instigating debates that facilitate courses of actions in the area in face of the transformations in the contemporary world. Moreover, the event also aims to promote propositional dialogues between Linguistics and other areas of knowledge.

Ultimately, I am arguing that language, gender, and sexuality scholars need to take race, class, and a host of other relevant categories seriously. I suggest that the way we should do this is not by simply adding these other categories into the empirical mix but instead by centering our analyses on the social, historical, ideological, and linguistic relationships between these categories and the different lived articulations of gender and sexuality we study. I believe that only once we have broadened our focus in this way will we be able to say that we have fully integrated intersectionality theory in language, gender, and sexuality research.
