About Us

Our Story

OSCLG–the Organization for the Study of Communication, Language and Gender–has grown from a series of interdisciplinary conferences that began at Bowling Green State University in 1978. Since that time, it has sought to provide a forum for professional discussion, presentation of research and demonstration of creative projects in the areas of communication, language and gender, and to promote recognition of those doing work in this area.

Members of OSCLG believe that interaction across a wide spectrum of disciplines is needed to foster more insightful discussion of the issues of language, gender and communication. Similarly, OSCLG seeks to include contributions from teachers, consultants and practitioners as well as researchers.
