Around the World in Non-Binary Terms: How Gender Diversity is Expressed in Languages other than English

Have you ever wondered how gender diversity is expressed in French, German and Spanish? 

Dr. Anne Linton, Professor of French, Dr. Ilona Vandergriff, Professor of German and Dr. Ana Luengo, Associate Professor of Spanish will illustrate how languages with grammatical gender have adapted to changing notions around gender identity, including the use of non-binary pronouns. Each presenter will discuss grammatical challenges unique to their respective language and share creative innovations that speakers of these languages have developed in a quest for a more inclusive language. 

Wednesday, 10/25/23 from 12-1

This event will be held in person in HUM 473 Kurt Liedtke Graduate Reading Room and via Zoom. Pizza and drinks will be provided.
