The International Gender and Language Association invites abstracts for
the first IGALA conference (formerly the Berkeley Women and Language
Conference). We seek 20-minute papers that deal with language in relation
to gender and/or sexuality. The conference is interdisciplinary, and we
invite work on diverse languages from a variety of fields, including
anthropology, education, feminist studies, linguistics, queer studies, and
sociology.  Each person may submit at most one individual and one jointly
authored abstract.

Submissions should consist of the following:
        * Title
        * Abstract text (no longer than 500 words)
        * Up to 3 key words identifying the subject matter
          of the presentation
        * Name(s) of author(s) (which should not appear in
          the text of the abstract)
        * Author affiliation(s), email, phone number, mailing address

Abstracts should be submitted as a regular, single email message.  Please
do not send any attachments or use any special formatting.  Email
abstracts to igala at csli.stanford.edu.  If you do not receive email
confirmation within 2 days of emailing your submission, please resend.
Faxed abstracts will not be accepted.  If you do not have access to email,
