Women in the History of Linguistics

Date/Time: 28th and 29th June 2016

Venue: British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SQ1Y 5AH

Women's role in the history of linguistics has not yet received the attention it deserves, despite current interest in linguistic historiography and questions of language and gender. This conference will consider women's contribution as linguists to both European and non-European traditions, in the public and prviate sphere. 

Convenors: 

Dr Helena Sanson, University of Cambridge

Professor Wendy Ayres-Bennett, University of Cambridge
