Abstract:
			
Gendered Discourses examines different gendered 'ways of seeing the
world' and how our identity may be constructed through the use of
different discourses, whether written or spoken. Jane Sunderland
demonstrates how gendered discourses can be identified and 'named' and
presents a number of her own and others' empirical studies of salient
gendered discourse settings, including the classroom, popular media,
parenting magazines, children's literature and formal and informal
talk. The first part of the book prepares the ground, setting the
options out in some detail; the second part presents new studies of
gendered discourses; and the third part addresses the important
questions of 'damaging' discourses and intervention in discourse. In
integrating a strong theoretical interest with many researched
examples, Jane Sunderland offers upper-level students and researchers
a comprehensive, coherent and stimulating new perspective on the study
of gender and language.
