This innovative book critically examines patriarchal hegemonies from a varietyof theoretical and methodological perspectives. It challenges the Anglo-American bias of much gender and language research to date by including richnew 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 broadlydefined notion of culture incorporates organizational cultures, subcultures ofsociety, cultures of clans or tribes as well as national cultures, depending on themeanings ascribed to the notion by people in public and private spaces. Thecentral question of the volume, which is addressed through a variety of data,different discourse analytical approaches and research methodologies, is: Howis gender constructed in social life and in patriarchal systems through discoursein different parts of the world?
