Membership and Journal Subscription

IGALA membership runs on a calendar year but, at whatever point you join, you will be sent any back issues that have already been published that year. Your subscription will complete with the publication of issue 3 of that year's volume, regardless of when you join.

Membership and Presentation at IGALA Conferences

In order to present a paper (including posters, panels, etc.) at the IGALA biannual conference, you must have a current IGALA membership (after having submitted a paper and having it successfully accepted according to the guidelines of the conference organising committee).

*Please note that IGALA membership runs on a calendar year. In cases where abstract submission and presentation fall in different calendar years, you will need to be a paid up member for the calendar year in which the presentation falls.

The 8th International Gender and Language Association Conference will be held at the Simon Fraser University, Harbour Centre, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, from June 5 – 7, 2014. Taking place for the first time in Canada, the conference will provide researchers worldwide with an opportunity to present their work and share ideas in the fields of language, gender, and sexuality.
