Abstract:

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 s haping 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.
