Lesbian Discourses is the first book-length treatment of lesbian text and
discourse. It looks at what changing images of community American and
British lesbian authors have communicated since 1970, how this change can
be traced in texts such as pamphlets, magazines and blogs, and why this
change has taken place. At the heart of the book is a detailed linguistic
analysis, which is embedded in a discussion of the relevant socio-political
contexts and discourse practices, and supplemented by interview data. The
book can more generally be read as an example of how to do textual analysis
in social research, in particular how to engage in the discourse-historical
and socio-cognitive study of collective identity. Despite its text-centered
approach, the book avoids being overly technical and will therefore be of
interest not only to postgraduate students and researchers in linguistics
but also to those in anthropology, history and sociology, especially
women's/gender studies.
