Queer linguistics and identity

Journal article

Link to manuscript

In this short essay, written as part of a ten-year anniversary special issue of Journal of Language and Sexuality, I offer some reflections on language and sexuality work over the past decade. My discussion is focused on the increasing influence of queer theory, in particular, and I comment on trends in research into language and queer identities. I take into account not only the work published in the Journal of Language and Sexuality and beyond, but also that presented over the past decade at the annual Lavender Languages and Linguistics conference.
