Papadopoulos, Benjamin

I am a Ph.D. student working in Hispanic Linguistics in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. I graduated with two B.A.s from UC Berkeley in 2018. I am interested in the fields of sociolinguistics and critical sociology. My current research investigates nonbinary gender morphology in Spanish (e.g. latinx, elleĀ ‘they [sg.]’) and other languages, and contextualizes the institutional rejection of gender-inclusive language within linguicism, a theoretical framework describing the inseparable nature of linguistic and all other forms of discrimination. I am relatedly pursuing a Designated Emphasis in Gender and Women’s Studies.
