Language, gender and sexism in the house of commons

Exploring language and gender in the house of commons


We are delighted that the next speaker in our Linguistics Research Seminar series at Northumbria will be Dr. Sylvia Shaw, from the University of Westminster.

Sylvia is a leading researcher on language, gender and politics. She has carried out influential research on language and gender in the house of commons (the focus of this talk) and in the devolved political institutions of the UK.

Her co-authored book with Deborah Cameron, Gender, Power and Political Speech, focused on the language of political leaders in the 2015 UK General Election (which makes it essential reading right now).

Her monograph Women, Language and Politics will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2020.

The title of Sylvia’s talk is:

“I meant no harm, Mr. Speaker”: Language, gender and sexism in the house of commons

The talk takes place at 2pm in room 121 in the Lipman Building.

The talk is open to all. We look forward to welcoming visitors and discussing Sylvia’s work.
