Title: On Language And Sexual Politics
Written By: Deborah Cameron
Description:

This highly accessible collection of articles presents a selection of
Deborah Cameron's work on language, gender and sex in one single volume.
Arranged thematically, this book covers major developments in
Anglo-American feminist linguistics, and Cameron's responses to these,
spanning the last twenty years.

The collection's overarching theme is the political relationship between
language and gender: four distinctly themed sections demonstrate that a
variety of forces affect gender relations, and gender representations, in
different times and places. Cameron examines the connections between
language and the (mis)representation of reality, and the role language
plays in reproducing gender inequalities. More recent articles focus on
representations of men and women as communicators, as well as the impact of
sexuality on gender and gender relations, an increasingly prominent area of
the author's research.
This timely work brings much of Cameron's work together for the first time,
and highlights characteristics of that work with which many readers will be
familiar: a combination of linguistic and feminist political orientation;
and a distinct focus on conflict in gender relations. Including a new
introductory essay and eleven articles, three of which are previously
unpublished, with short introductions to contextualize each piece, the
collection will be extremely useful to students and teachers on a variety
of courses including English Language and Linguistics, women's studies,
gender studies and communication studies.
