More About This Title Our Otherness


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?
