Welcome everyone for today’s talk with Ártemis López about non-binary Spanish today! This event is organised as part of LGBT+ History Month at Wolfson College This is the link to the talk on Teams: tinyurl.com/5bacqqzk
Ártemis López is a PhD Candidate in Linguistics at the Universidade de Vigo, where they research non-binary Spanish. They are an ATA-certified English to/from Spanish translator and a CCHI-certified medical interpreter, and hold an M.A. in Medical Translation from the Universitat Jaume I
Spanish, like many languages, has a grammatical gender that, traditionally, is binary and almost inescapable. So, how do non-binary Spanish users express themselves? What does this tell us about the rigidity or flexibility of language? (Talk will be in English)
