Symposia: 221/77 - Language and social (in)equalities

Wednesday 5 July
9.00 - 10.40 h.
Seminar
The present symposium demonstrates how language contributes to social (in)equalities. Five talks show how voice, metaphors, and word choices subtly influence the perception of members of gender stereotyped groups and provides insights on how social (in)equalities can be reduced.
