Book Information

   

Title: Gender Identity and Discourse Analysis
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture
Description:

Gender and discourse interface in many more epistemological sites than can be represented in one collection. Gender Identity and Discourse Analysis therefore focuses on a principled diversity of key sites within four broad areas: the media, sexuality, education and parenthood. The different chapters together illustrate how taking a discourse perspective facilitates understanding of the complex and subtle ways in which gender is represented, constructed and contested through language.

The book engages critically with long-running and on-going debates, but also reflects and develops current understandings of gender, identity and discourse, particularly the shift from 'gender differences' to the discoursal shaping of gender. Gender Identity and Discourse Analysis thus offers not only insights and methodologies of new empirical studies but also careful theorisations, in particular of discourse, text, identity and gender .
The collection is a valuable resource for researchers, postgraduates and advanced undergraduates working in the area of gender and discourse.
