Welcome to the website of the workshop "Theoretical and Experimental Approaches to Gender" (ThEGen).
This workshop aims to bring together scholars working on gender from the fields of morphosyntax, semantics, psycholinguistics, and language acquisition. There is a substantial body of experimental and theoretical work on gender, the most recent of which highlights the need to increase the depth of the research. By doing so, a more comprehensive understanding can be achieved of how gender is represented, processed, acquired, and developed. Moreover, further insight can be gained into how gender interacts with different grammatical and linguistic features as well as with other cognitive components. Cross-linguistic evidence and experimental approaches can significantly advance the study of gender by leading to a better articulated syntactic representation and, consequently, a more qualified theory of language processing as well as of L1/L2 acquisition.
