AMSA XXIV. Linguist Scott Kiesling to be Keynote Speaker at AMSA’s 2016 Conference
Scott F. Kiesling, PhD, Associate Professor of Linguistics at the University of Pittsburgh, will be the keynote speaker at the Twenty-fourth Annual Men and Masculinities Conference of the American Men’s Studies Association, March 31- April 3, 2016 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Kiesling has taught at the University of Pittsburgh since 2000. His work on men and masculinity began in 1990 when he recorded a conversation among fraternity men for a course on conversation analysis, which was the seed for his 1996 dissertation “Language, Gender, and Power in Fraternity Men’s Discourse.”
Among his publications are three books: Linguistic Variation and Change (Edinburgh University Press, 2011), The Handbook of Intercultural Discourse and Communication with Christina Bratt Paulston and Elizabeth Rangel (Blackwell, 2012), and Intercultual Discourse and Communication: The Essential Readings with Christina Bratt Paulston (Blackwell, 2005).
Kiesling will share his reflections on language and masculinities during the AMSA XXIV Keynote Address. For more information on Professor Kiesling, click here.
