Title: Gender and Language Research Methodologies
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=280346
Description:

Gender and Language Research Methodologies draws together for the first
time the main current methodological approaches to the study of language
and gender. These include sociolinguistics and ethnography, corpus
linguistics, conversation analysis, discursive psychology, critical
discourse analysis, feminist post-structuralist discourse analysis and
queer theory. Each ‘approach’ is introduced by one of its key proponents in
the field (including Ruth Wodak on CDA, Celia Kitzinger on conversation
analysis and Judith Baxter on feminist post-structuralist discourse
analysis), and this is followed by chapters illustrating uses of the
approach. Readers (including postgraduate researchers) are thus able to
consider which approach may be relevant to a given research project. They
are also encouraged to consider the important question of the combination
of approaches: which approaches are (and are not) compatible. In sum, this
book explicitly addresses and constructively problematises what in many
monographs and edited collections is left implicit and unquestioned.
