性别 Terminology (Digital activity)

The availability of vocabulary to describe or talk about 性别, in languages other than English, poses an interesting opportunity for a multilingual country like South Africa. The possibility of generating 性别 terminology, especially with input from community members, is very important. Two Digital 人文学科 researchers from the South African Centre for Digital Languages Resources (SADiLaR), Deon du Plessis 而且 Benito Trollip, have been exploring this possibility the past few years. 作为2022年性别意识周的一部分,他们正在与亚美体育校园骄傲协会合作,展示由不同的人或组织为某些南非语言开发的一些术语, as well as the gaps in the terminology. Feel free to engage with them via email at 迪翁•.duplessis@romantizmtehlukesi.com 而且 贝尼托.trollip@romantizmtehlukesi.com.

Femmegineering 而且 Modiragatse

工程学院提出这两项倡议的目的是通过榜样和其他活动改变性别刻板印象, 而且 open STEM-careers to school learners who identifies as female. Modiragatse runs prior to GAW 而且 ends on 9 August 2022. 阅读更多:

Time: 11:00

发言人: Dr Jean du Toit

亚美体育官方网站: Mr Laurie Gaum

演讲者: Megan Williams

亚美体育官方网站: Mr Rickus Stroh

本研究旨在填补阿非利卡人以“酷儿”为特征的女性和非二元性别个体以“酷儿”语言的特殊方式表达身份和生活经历的长期空白. Within this focus, 语言被描述为这些酷儿个体在异性恋的社会期望之外构建他们的性别和性认同和表达的工具. 收集使用的具体术语和短语将有助于回答“LGBTQIA+语言社区如何通过语言来标志身份”的问题?”. 这项研究提供了在南非荷兰语社区“规范框架”之外使用该语言的另一种方式. Furthermore, the idea of ‘performativity’ introduced by Judith Butler, will also be used to support the notion that just like 性别, 基于个人生理性别的预期语言使用是对社会所接受的“规范”的构建. 因此, 这个讨论将强调酷儿女性和非二元个体如何自由地使用来自社会建构的语言来标志他们的身份. Within the sociolinguistic view of language, 性别, 而且 性, 将收集语言学数据,以了解该社区使用的术语和短语,以及这些词在南非LGBTQIA+社区背景下的含义.

In this hard-hitting conversation, Prof Zethu Matebeni interrogates the role of black men in society, 提供了一个至关重要的批评男子气概和男权谎言,主导如何看待自己和他们与他人的关系. Through a queer analysis, 这个讲座表明,南非已经被一种对同性恋激进和自由政治的想象的抵抗所阻止.

“依附于土壤是由密歇根州立大学的彼得·格伦丁尼(Peter Glendinning)和来自不同年龄和社会背景的南非人合作创作的50幅摄影肖像作品集. It tells the stories of these individuals, capturing their hopes, 恐惧, aspirations 而且 disappointments. It speaks of a people who are distinguished by their diversity, emanating as they do from a variety of racial, 文化, religious 而且 linguistic backgrounds. All have been marked by the tragic history of racialized exploitation in this l而且. But all demonstrate in their activities, ambitions 而且 voice how this tragedy did not scar their souls. All speak of a desire to belong to a cosmopolitan community, of an underst而且ing that political community is established not by where its inhabitants come from,

but rather by their common intention to continue to belong to a community that resides in a specific geographical space”. 哈比卜

But, as Jaspir Puar 而且 Amit S. Rai (2002) point out, 民间集会(亚美体育官方网站可以把橄榄球当作南非想象中的典范)几乎总是经过调解的, 因此,考虑一下橄榄球——以及上面详细描述的内容——如何在南非的流行媒体中呈现,将会是富有成效的. In this session, Dr Wemar Strydom offers such an overview, with consideration of popular film (with a focus on Modder en Bloed, dir. 其他的肖恩, 2016), 性别ed expression awareness campaigns (the Jozi Cats’ 2010 poster drive), literary fiction (Fanie Viljoen’s Uit, 2014), 而且 TV series (Getroud met rugby, 2016 onward).
