Our Otherness
Finno-Ugrian Approaches to Women's Studies, or vice versa
Reihe: Finno-Ugrian Studies in Austria. Schriftenreihe für die Forschungsbereiche der Abteilung Finno-Ugristik (Institut für Europäische und Vergleichende Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft) an der Universität Wien
Bd. 2, 2005, 200 S., 19.90 EUR, 19.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-8626-3


"Our Otherness" explores the interface between Finno-Ugrian Studies - traditional research into the Finno-Ugric languages, their history and relatedness, as well as other approaches to the language, history, culture, and folklore of these peoples - and Women`s Studies. How do gender and linguistic origins interact in the making of national identity? Can we speak about a "gendered Finno-Ugrianness"? How does gender express itself in languages lacking grammatical gender, and how are these questions dealt with in language description and language planning?
