Issues of gendered language have been a subject of discussion in our workshops for years.
A radio broadcast in German referring to doctors as male and nurses as female was what made us decide to focus on this issue in a separate seminar focused on developing templates and approaches for dealing with gender in scientific writing. The workshop includes a lecture presenting solutions from a variety of scientific research institutes. In the practical portion of the workshop, participants will explore ideas about how language can work to promote gender equality and will write or rewrite their own texts accordingly.
