Podcast: Gender Identity in Political Speeches

Guests: Johanna Eichler and Ester van Twillert

Host: Esmee Woltring


In this podcast episode, we interview Jojo and Ester about their research project regarding gender identity in speeches by politicians in German and Tajik. They looked at how presidents used gendered nouns (e.g. firman) and how these were sometimes neutralised (e.g. firefighter). They then tried to see whether the level of gendered-ness was also related to the culture associated with the language and the speaker. A very interesting conversation ensued!
