YSU student's research accepted at four prestigious academic conferences

Isabella Davis, a master's degree student in English, will have four opportunities to share her work with scholarly communities. The Sacramento, Calif., native who earned bachelor's degrees in Political Science and Spanish at YSU, has been accepted to present her research in linguistic anthropology at four academic conferences this year.

Her work focuses on a recent grassroots proposal in Argentina and other southern cone countries of South America to use the letter "e" in Spanish for individuals who do not identify within the current binary system of gender (i.e. amige instead of amigo or amiga).

Davis' research analyzes comments made on social media related to the "e" proposal. Davis said she next hopes to continue exploring the uses and effects of gender-inclusive language by speaking with members of the gender non-conforming community in Latin America.
