Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

Positioning Gender in Discourse introduces a newly emerging approach to the
analysis of talk. Feminist Post-structuralist Discourse Analysis (FPDA)
offers a means of analyzing the ways in which speakers construct their
gendered identities within a complex web of power relations. The FPDA
approach challenges the traditional feminist view that females are often
disempowered within mixed-sex settings. The FPDA approach to analyzing talk
shows that both male and female speakers are constantly shifting between
positions of powerfulness and powerlessness - even within the same
conversation. The methodology is demonstrated through a study of teenagers'
conversations in class and a study of senior managers' discussions in
business meetings, concluding with suggestions that while female speakers
are often 'silenced' by dominant social discourses, they are far from
uniformly powerless.
