Title: Language, Gender and Feminism
Subtitle: Theory, Methodology and Practice
Written By: Sara Mills
Loise Mullany
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415485968/
Description:

Language, Gender and Feminism presents students and researchers with key
contemporary theoretical perspectives, methodologies and analytical
frameworks in the field of feminist linguistic analysis.

Mills and Mullany cover a wide range of contemporary feminist theories and
emphasise the importance of an interdisciplinary approach. Topics covered
include: power, language and sexuality, sexism and an exploration of the
difference between second and third wave feminist analysis.

Each chapter presents examples from research conducted in different
cultural and linguistic contexts which allows students to observe practical
applications of all current theories and approaches. Throughout oral and
written language data, from a wealth of different contexts, settings and
sources, is thoroughly analysed. The book concludes with a discussion of
how the field could advance and a overview of the various research methods,
pertinent for future work in language and gender study.

Language, Gender and Feminism is an invaluable text for students new to the
discipline of Language and Gender studies within English Language,
Linguistics, Communication Studies and Women’s Studies, as well as being an
up-to-date resource for more established researchers and scholars.
