Welcome to the OSCLG website! On this site, you can learn a great deal about this organization and the many ways you can become involved. Since we were founded in 1978, OSCLG has grown and changed in many ways and we invite you to be part of our future years!

One way to get involved is to attend our annual conference. Every year first-time conference attendees note the welcoming environment they find at our conferences and returning attendees always look forward to the lively, interdisciplinary conversations (and the wine and chocolate party each night!). This conference is unlike any other that I attend…I encourage you to experience it for yourself and in my experience you will be likely to come back!

OSCLG is also affiliated with the wonderful journal Women and Language, which is currently edited by Patricia Sotirin from Michigan Technological University. Each year this journal publishes a wide variety of pieces from many different disciplines. By visiting the Women and Language tab on this site or the more complete journal website, you can read our current table of contents and get more information about this important journal, including how to submit your own work online.

Another way to learn more about OSCLG is to visit the About Us or the “News” page where you can learn about our history, our current executive board, or check out information about our Facebook Page, the OSCLG blog, the OSCLG lists-serve, and other current association news. If you are interested in contributing to the blog, you can contact Communication Director Kathy Miller at katherinemiller59@gmail.com

If you would like to join OSCLG, browse our Membership page where you can get all the information about joining the organization.

We are thrilled you have stopped by our website and I personally hope to see you at the 2015 conference in Bowling Green, Kentucky!

Yours in Feminist Solidarity -
