Professor Jeremy Calder's work straddles the fields of sociolinguistic variation and linguistic anthropology. Using sociophonetic and ethnographic methods, they explore the role of phonetic variation in the construction of marginalized identity in communities of queer/trans individuals and people of color. They are a member of the editorial board for Gender and Language and are working on a monograph entitled Handsome Women: non-binary language, gender, and embodied style in a San Francisco drag community.
Prof. Calder was selected for this month's 'Member Spotlight' by the Linguistic Society of America. Check out the interview here.
