Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 10-Sep-2016 

Meeting Description:

Corpus linguistic work on sexuality has been carried out for more than a
decade. This panel aims to collate recent corpus linguistic research on
sexuality to take stock of how this field has developed and to explore
potential future developments. As a methodology, corpus linguistics has
considerably improved our understanding of how the usage frequency of
linguistic features is involved in the discursive construction of sexuality,
be it from a sociolinguistic or a (critical) discourse analytic perspective.


2nd Call for Papers:

The panel organiser invites paper proposals that build on this tradition and
advance corpus linguistic sexuality studies through theoretical or
methodological considerations based on new corpus analyses. In particular,
work that addresses the following questions will be preferred:

- What does the frequency of linguistic features tell us about the discursive
construction of sexuality?
- How should high-frequency, low-frequency and absent features in corpora be
treated in sexuality-related linguistic analyses?
- How can qualitative corpus linguistic techniques fruitfully be used in
language and sexuality studies to complement quantitative corpus analyses?
- Which role can corpus linguistics play in the triangulation of methods in
language and sexuality studies (for example, with ethnographic approaches)?
- In how far are lexical, semantic and grammatical linguistic levels involved
in the discursive construction of sexuality and how can these levels be
adequately studied through corpora?
- Which specific aspects of the discursive construction of sexuality do
analyses of frequency lists, keyness, concordances, collocations, colligations
and other corpus linguistic techniques target?
- How can corpus linguistics be employed to uncover sexuality-related
discourses such as heteronormativity, homonormativity, gender binarism,
homophobia and heterosexism?
- How can corpus linguistics contribute to Queer Linguistic research goals
such as the deconstruction or de-essentialisation of gender- and
sexuality-related categories?

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words (excluding references) by 10
September 2016 to Heiko Motschenbacher (Goethe-University Frankfurt):
