Abstract:

This edited volume brings together scholars from psychology,
linguistics, sociology and communication science to investigate how
performative notions of gender and sexuality can be fruitfully
explored with the rich set of tools that have been developed by
conversation analysis and discursive psychology for analyzing everyday
practical language use, agency and identity in talk.

Contributors re-examine the foundations of earlier research on gender
in spoken interaction, critically appraise this research to see if and
how it 'translates' successfully into the study of sexuality in talk,
and promote innovative alternatives that integrate the insights of
recent feminist and queer theory with qualitative studies of talk and
conversation. Detailed empirical analyses of naturally occurring talk
are used to uncover how gender and sexual identities, agencies and
desires are contingently accomplished in conversational
practices. Collectively, they pose the important question of what a
critical theory of talk, gender and sexuality ought to look like if it
is to be sensitive to a politics of conversation analysis.
