This symposium aims to bring together scholars who are using (or interested in using) corpora to study gender. We welcome both studies that focus on the relation between gender and *usage *—the patterns characteristic of the language used by, addressed to or intended for people of a specific gender— and those focusing on the *representation* of gender —the patterns that characterise text and talk about people of a specific gender— as well as other forms of corpus-based research into gender as a syntactic, semantic or pragmatic category. The symposium will conclude with a keynote address by Charlotte Taylor (University of Sussex).
Abstracts (ca. 250 words) are being accepted until Friday 30 March 2018 for 20-minute paper presentations on any aspect relating to the symposium theme. Please send anonymised abstracts to Alon Lischinsky < alischinsky+baalcorpussig at brookes.ac.uk>, including in the body of the email your name, affiliation, contact details and any specific technical requirements for your presentation. Confirmation of acceptance will be sent by *Friday 13 April 2018*.
