Have you ever wondered why talk about sexuality is everywhere? How certain identities have formed or how slurs around sex, sexuality, and gender persist? Interested in how political talk impacts our intimate understandings of ourselves?

If so, then join us at the Lavender Languages and Linguistics conference held at California Institute of Integral Studies. Participants from around the world will deliver papers that closely examine these questions. Students, activists, and early career scholars are encouraged to attend.

The Lavender Languages and Linguistics conference, dedicated to language and sexuality research, has run annually since 1993. The Human Sexuality PhD Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies is proud to host the 27th Annual Lavender Languages Conference in San Francisco, CA, in 2021, dates to be confirmed.
