We – Dana and Kathi – are two young feminist linguists, or as we like to call ourselves „femguists“.
We both recently graduated in Linguistics at Düsseldorf University and come from different linguistic backgrounds. Dana has a focus on Forensic Linguistics and Law, Semantics and Pragmatics whereas Kathi specialized on Neurolinguistics and Bilingualism (Neuro-Bilingualism), Phonology and Dialectology/Sociolinguistics. We have a shared interest for feminism, queerness and lavender linguistics and combine our interests in these fields – besides our odd teaching.
This Blog is supposed to keep our fellow readers updated on what we are working on at the moment, upcoming talks etc. Mostly in the field of Lavender Linguistics but also several intersections of linguistics, feminism and related topics like e.g. issues on neural gender research.
We will also publish blogposts, which will be written either in German or English.
