International Conference on Gender, Language and Education (ICGLE)

Date: 2 – 4 December 2020 (Wed – Fri)
Host: The Education University of Hong Kong

The ICGLE seeks to bring together academics, researchers, community leaders, policymakers, education practitioners and research postgraduate students from the worldwide community to explore equality and diversity issues in language and education through a gendered lens. Since gender inequalities have been the focus of heated debate around the world, the ICGLE aims to call for collaborative action to address systemic (gender) inequalities, particularly in the Asian context. It is hoped that through the conference, a platform for knowledge transfer and capacity-building of multi-disciplinary studies of gender may be established in the region. Over the course of the ICGLE, we invite keynote speeches, themed panels and paper and/or poster presentations on topics related to the conference theme 'Gender, Language and Education: Equality and Diversity Issues in Asia and Beyond'.

The conference is supported by the Department of Linguistics and Modern Language Studies, Department of Social Sciences and Centre for Research on Linguistics and Language Studies at the Education University of Hong Kong.
