Abstract:
			
Gender in Interaction: Perspectives on femininity and masculinity in
ethnography and discourse by Bettina Baron and Helga Kotthoff
(eds.), Konstanz University/Fulda University of Applied
Sciences

In this volume, gender is seen as a communicative achievement and as a
social category interacting with other social parametres such as age,
status, prestige, institutional and ethnic frameworks, cultural and
situative contexts. The authors come from a variety of backgrounds
such as sociology of communication, anthropological linguistics,
sociolinguistics, social psychology, and text linguistics. Masculinity
and femininity are conceived of as varying culturally, historically
and contextually. All contributions discuss empirical research of
communication and the question of whether (and how) gender is a
salient variable in discourse. So, one aim of the book is to trace the
varying relevance of gender in interaction. Emotion politics,
ideology, body concepts, and speech styles are related to ethnographic
description of the contexts within which communication takes
place. These contexts range from private to public communication, and
from mixed-sex to same-sex conversations framed by different cultural
backgrounds (Australian, German, Georgian, Turkish, US-American).
