Linguistique féministe: Perspectives internationales

Numéro multilingue
Feminist linguistics: international perspectives. Multilingual issue
This multilingual issue 15 of GLAD! explores the relations between linguistics and feminism. From Brazil to Nepal via Uruguay, Réunion Island and the web, its five research articles in English, Spanish and French offer a varied look at the issues, objects and approaches of contemporary feminist research in linguistics. Océane Foubert looks at neologisms, a little-explored facet of feminist linguistic activism, in a study of an online collaborative dictionary that highlights the plurality of feminisms. Nathalie Carpentier and Audrey Noël examine the links between creolité and queer in the discourses of young activists. Naomi Orton and Liana Biar contextualize and document the emergence of a feminist approach in their ethnographic research in Brazil - the former in a group of bicycle advocates, the latter in the penitentiary system. Basanti Timalsina and Victoria L. Bergvall show how, through the iterativity of language and their dissemination on new media, the Hindu Tij songs of Nepal provide models for feminist agency. Finally, Victoria Furtado examines the role of language and discourse in the political subjectivation of Uruguayan feminist activists, adopting an approach that blends ethnography, Marxist philosophy of language and feminist thought. This feminist issue features two “Creations”: a video and a text on the history of the word “orgasm” by artist and independent researcher Christina Goestl, and a text in which Émilie Notéris invites us to explore other possible worlds, drawn by “history’s unheard voices”. 
Issue 15 of GLAD! also includes two Master's theses summaries, a PhD dissertation summary, two book reviews, and a "Varia" article by Erica Lippert, who analyzes how women DJs view the various feminized forms of the French term for DJ. Finally, in his column “Les genres récrits”, Daniel Elmiger reflects on the neuter and its counterpart the uter, and on strategies aiming at extending the field of non-binarity.
