About this book


This advanced textbook critically reviews a range of theoretical and empirical work on gendered discourses, and explores how gendered discourses can be identified, described and named. It also examines the actual workings of discourses in terms of construction and their potential to 'damage'. For upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in discourse analysis, gender studies, social psychology and media studies.
