What are the considerations as you finish up course-work and choose a dissertation? 

Follow your heart or follow the money?

Searching for your first job

What issues should be considered?

Do you go home? Or do you launch yourself far from home? 

Maintaining family and community ties as scholars of color

Is the world at your feet or on your shoulders?

Navigating the publication process

From your first publication to starting a new journal.

How to deal with rejection and discrimination

Keeping joy and dignity in your everyday work


Trans-inclusive language reform & changing interactional norms
Lal Zimman (he/him), UCSB
Saturday, May 18th at 1:30pm

McCune Conference Room (HSSB 6020)

This workshop addresses shifting linguistic and interactional norms surrounding language reform designed to make language more affirming and inclusive for trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming communities. In addition to discussing some principles of trans-inclusive language, we will also discuss the impact these changes have on interactional routines such as introductions, identity-related questions, and corrections. Finally, workshop participants will discuss specific scenarios in which new norms and practices may be implemented. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions, concerns, and challenging scenarios to discuss.
