They, Hirself, Em, And You: Nonbinary pronouns in research and practice

They, Hirself, Em, and You is a three-day conference ( 11-13 June) bringing together linguists and other researchers and practitioners working on topics relating to nonbinary pronouns in English.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers working on topics relating to nonbinary gender (usage, users, and user experiences) in language, particularly in pronouns, in order to both raise the profile of this research within linguistics and other disciplines, and to build resources that can be used by educators, policy makers, community advocates, and researchers in other fields. It will include two interleaved tracks of talks and presentations: one featuring research from linguistics, and one featuring scholars and practitioners from other fields. There will also be a series of four invited keynote talks, open to the public, and one of the conference outputs will be a resource compiling information and resources on nonbinary pronouns, for general use.

Keynote Speakers:

Lauren Ackerman, Newcastle University
Kirby Conrod, University of Washington
Lex Konnelly, University of Toronto
Brooke Larson
