Ways with Words: Exploring Language and Gender
Thursday and Friday, March 3 and 4
Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University
Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA

This two-day conference is a snapshot of the state of language in today’s society as it relates to, mirrors, and affects perceptions of gender. Anthropologists, authors, computer scientists, journalists, linguists, performing artists, politicians, and psychologists will explore different facets of the interplay of gender and language.

The conference begins on Thursday evening with "Plays with Words," an evening about language and gender in comedy, featuring comedian Cameron Esposito and ImprovBoston. March 4 brings a full day of panels that will consider moving beyond binary distinctions, what the Internet and big data analysis can teach us about gender and language, and the role of gender in public discourse. Through comparative perspectives, multidisciplinary approaches, and contemporary examples, this conference examines the inextricably related concepts of gender, language, and culture. Janet Mock—a cultural commentator, advocate for trans women’s rights, and New York Times bestselling author—will deliver the keynote address.
