The students said one particular highlight was Deborah Cameron’s session on Language and Misogyny, so we have a section below about Professor Cameron:

“Deborah Cameron is Professor of Language and Communication at Oxford University, UK. Her publications include The Myth of Mars and VenusVerbal Hygiene, The Feminist Critique of Language and her forthcoming book, Language, Sexism and Misogyny is published by Routledge in December 2023. She regularly contributes to broadcasts and podcasts on language and gender, and blogs at Language: a feminist guide.”

The students enjoyed it all and are excited for getting back into the classroom to go over what they learnt.
