Title: Language and Religious Identity
Subtitle: Women in Discourse
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=0230517293
Description:

This collection of studies from around the world connects applied linguistic
research with the complexities of gender and religion. The contributors
explore the ways in which women in various religious situations use
language to reveal and to create a religious identity of their own, and how
language itself is used to position women in particular roles. The studies
come from the USA, Nigeria, Brazil, Thailand, Canada, the UK and
Poland.The varieties of engagements explored include on-line churches,
small churches, emigrant experience, theological conversations and
religious practice experienced in and through the media. Readers in applied
linguistics, anthropology or religious studies, who are interested in language
and its power in creating lived experience, will find this book full of intriguing
and illuminating connections.
