Title: Living with Patriarchy
Subtitle: Discursive constructions of gendered subjects across cultures
Edited By: Danijela Majstorović
Inger Lassen
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/dapsac.45
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 45
Description:

This innovative book critically examines patriarchal hegemonies from a variety
of theoretical and methodological perspectives. It challenges the Anglo-
American bias of much gender and language research to date by including rich
new data and insights from scholars working in countries such as Colombia,
Liberia, Kenya, Vietnam, Japan, Greece, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sweden,
Denmark and Poland. Within these different geographical contexts, a broadly
defined notion of culture incorporates organizational cultures, subcultures of
society, cultures of clans or tribes as well as national cultures, depending on the
meanings ascribed to the notion by people in public and private spaces. The
central question of the volume, which is addressed through a variety of data,
different discourse analytical approaches and research methodologies, is: How
is gender constructed in social life and in patriarchal systems through discourse
in different parts of the world?
