Book Description

27 Jan 2006 0340809590 978-0340809594
The book introduces both theoretical and applied perspectives, identifying and explaining the relevant frameworks and drawing on a range of activities/examples of how gender is constructed in discourse.
The book is divided into three parts. Part I covers the historical background to the study of gender and language, moving on through past theoretical approaches to a discussion of current debates in the field, with particular emphasis on the role of discourse analysis. In Part II, gender is examined in context with chapters focussing on gender and language in education, the mass media and the workplace. Finally, Part III briefly looks at key principles and approaches to gender and language research and includes activities, study questions and resources for teachers in the field.
Rich with examples and activities drawn from current debates and events, this book is designed to be appealing and informative and will capture the imaginations of readers from a range of backgrounds and disciplines.

Product Description


Litosseliti manages to tell the gender and language story in a steady, clear
and accessible, but at the same time scholarly way, and never patronises her
readers. In terms of accessibility and being up-to-date, this book now seems
the best choice for anyone teaching 'Language and Gender' to upper
undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as for independent study. With
useful summaries and further reading at the end of each chapter, examples
and activities in the form of questions within the chapters, useful
cross-referencing throughout, and a rich bibliography, this is an
undoubtedly valuable resource for teachers, students, and researchers.

Jane Sunderland, Lancaster University, UK

This book's numerous contemporary examples drawn from the media and
conversations will be very appealing to student readers. The lucid and
accessible chapters on media, education and workplaces reflect the latest
research, as they highlight key sites for scholarship and activism. The
chapter on principles for feminist linguistic research will be an
invaluable aid for any instructor interested in helping students to
critically read research, or to engage in research on their own.

Bonnie McElhinny, University of Toronto, Canada

Lia Litosseliti provides a valuable introduction to language and gender for
those new to this rapidly developing field. The focus on both theory and
practice (an exploration of language and gender in education, the media and
the workplace) make this an engaging and accessible resource for students.

Joan Swann, Open University, UK

This book offers a stimulating appraisal of a range of language and gender
theories. It places a particular emphasis upon current constructionist and
discursive approaches, and gives an excellent survey of recent research
studies. MA and 3rd year undergraduates will benefit enormously from this
lucid guide to the field.

Judith Baxter, University of Reading, UK
