Info

Race, Gender, Sexuality and Language Research Network intends to investigate this entanglement through language and in language. We also aim at getting together scholars in order to share theoretical, methodological and analytical frames to comprehend such phenomenon in different contexts. Moreover, we also intend to establish an official area for these studies within Applied Linguistics.

 

Main goals:

  • Promote the interweaving of race, gender, sexuality and language as a distinct research area within Applied Linguistics
  • Discuss relevant articles and books to the participants considering theoretical, methodological and analytical support.
  • Organize and publish papers in journals and/or books as a group
  • Present papers on ReN’s activities
