Title: Gendered Discourses
Written By: Jane Sunderland
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products//Catalogue.aspx?is=1403913455
Description:

Gendered Discourses examines different gendered 'ways of seeing the world' and how our identity may be constructed through the use of different discourses, whether written or spoken. Jane Sunderland demonstrates how gendered discourses can be identified and 'named' and presents a number of her own and others' empirical studies of salient gendered discourse settings, including the classroom, popular media, parenting magazines, children's literature and formal and informal talk. The first part of the book prepares the ground, setting the options out in some detail; the second part presents new studies of gendered discourses; and the third part addresses the important questions of 'damaging' discourses and intervention in discourse. In integrating a strong theoretical interest with many researched examples, Jane Sunderland offers upper-level students and researchers a comprehensive, coherent and stimulating new perspective on the study of gender and language.
