BIO

ABOUT ME

Fabienne Baider holds a MBA from the Ecole Supérieure de commerce de Lille – Skema Business School, a B. A. Honours in French language and literature (UNISA, South Africa), a Master in French language and literature (UBC, Canada ) thanks to the UGF fellowship at UBC, a Ph. D. in Linguistics and Gender Studies (Univ. of Toronto, Canada) supported by the OGS and the SSHRC fellowships. Holding a tuition waiver for her Ph. D. at the University of California at Berkeley she did her Ph. D. courses there with Suzanne Fleischman as her supervisor. Having to go back to Canada for medical reasons, she finished her Ph. D. at the University of Toronto, having the honor to keep Susanne Fleischman on her Ph. D. committee (then supervised by P. Bhatt and A. M. Brousseau).

TEACHING

In South Africa and more precisely in Cape Town she taught French as a Foreign Language (FFL) in the German School and at Abbotts College for the Baccalauréat (final high school year). At the University of the Western Cape, as a lecturer she taught Universal Generative Grammar (at the time) and medieval literature, to students coming from the nearby townships. She was also part of a pilot project organized by the Alliance française in South Africa and taught French (FFL) in the Mitchell’s Plain Township in the primary and secondary schools.

In Canada as a Graduate Student, she was a teaching assistant in Phonetics at UBC(Vancouver), in Literature at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver), and in FFL courses at the University of California at Berkeley. She also worked in Berkeley in Text to Speech Technologies (at the BST Company) for French phonetics.

As a Ph. D. Teaching Assistant at the University of Toronto, she taught general linguistics and FFL courses in the French department as well as at Ryerson University. She was part of a team organized by the provincial government in Ontario to teach seminars on administrative and business writing, and she worked as well as a translator with F. Lachance for Medical Internet sites. She received two best paper awards during her Ph. D., the first one was granted by the CIEF (Conseil International des Etudes Francophones) and the other by the ALLC (Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing).

After her Ph. D. she was an Assistant Professor at the Scarborough campus (U. of T. campus) where she taught phonetics, general linguistics and FFL courses.

Since the year 2001 she has been teaching at the University of Cyprus where she has been an Associate professor since 2009.

FIELDS OF RESEARCH

RESEARCH

Her fields of research include semantics within a cognitive and intercultural framework (see ECC Research programme and publications on this site), Language and gender (and more broadly language and identity within a constructionist perspective, see the publication list on this site). Her broad experience in teaching French as a Foreign Language encouraged her to develop an expertise in Applied Linguistics as far as interculturality and teaching the lexicon are concerned (see Fos-Mo project, Publications and Mentoring on this site).

Intersexion. Langues romanes, langue et genre

The field of research which lies at the crossroads between language and gender is particularly fruitful: not only because it allows the exploration of the different 'genres' that prove to be relevant in the study of social relations expressed through speech (gender grammatical, sex and social gender of the people involved in speaking or referred to in a text, etc.), but also because it highlights the multiple power relations that are reflected in language.

Labels and Features in Dictionaries

The first part, devoted to semantics, deals with lexicographical descriptions and equivalence problems in language dictionaries, including with regard to translation. The second part, of a sociolinguistic order, examines the diastratic marking carried out by arg., Fam. and pop. and the diatopic marking of the Belgian, Cypriot, Quebecois and Swiss varieties of French. Are such geolinguistic classifications founded? What is the status of the notion of "variant"? More generally, does the marking of the “unconventional” lexicon respond to current linguistic realities? How are reported values ​​marked, described and distributed in an electronic dictionary? Methodological proposals based on new theoretical frameworks are presented at the end of the volume.

La parité linguistique, Nouvelles Questions Féministes 26/3, 10

Social symbolism being conveyed and structured by language, it is a whole conception of the world that is involved in this question. The use of the so-called “generic” masculine is not called into question, although it systematically skews the social representation of women. Thus linguistic parity, the construction of non-discriminatory knowledge systems, the use of the feminine and the masculine for all human denominations, the effective recognition of women in social discourse, are indispensable instruments in the conquest of real equality

Hommes galants, femmes faciles: Etude socio-sémantique et diachronique

This book retraces the stages of the socio-cultural construction of the male / female opposition from a large body of computerized texts. We discover how the pejoration that affects the feminine paradigm is dependent on the institutional role of linguistic use and norms. By its subject and its methodology, this work is intended for all those interested in the history of the language, sociolinguistics, lexicology and semantics of French.

    Erasmus program

    In this role I initiated and established our department’s Erasmus program in 2002, securing bilateral contracts with 15 French-speaking universities in Europe. Since the launch of the European studies programme, we have also signed bilateral contracts with a number of German-speaking universities. On average we send 10 students for the Erasmus exchange and receive 7. In 2019 we sent 12 students and received 11 (mainly from France, Belgium and Germany ). We have on average 2 students in each of our Master seminars.
