Litosseliti manages to tell the gender and language story in a steady, clear
and accessible, but at the same time scholarly way, and never patronises her
readers. In terms of accessibility and being up-to-date, this book now seems
the best choice for anyone teaching 'Language and Gender' to upper
undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as for independent study. With
useful summaries and further reading at the end of each chapter, examples
and activities in the form of questions within the chapters, useful
cross-referencing throughout, and a rich bibliography, this is an
undoubtedly valuable resource for teachers, students, and researchers.
Jane Sunderland, Lancaster University, UK
This book's numerous contemporary examples drawn from the media and
conversations will be very appealing to student readers. The lucid and
accessible chapters on media, education and workplaces reflect the latest
research, as they highlight key sites for scholarship and activism. The
chapter on principles for feminist linguistic research will be an
invaluable aid for any instructor interested in helping students to
critically read research, or to engage in research on their own.
Bonnie McElhinny, University of Toronto, Canada
Lia Litosseliti provides a valuable introduction to language and gender for
those new to this rapidly developing field. The focus on both theory and
practice (an exploration of language and gender in education, the media and
the workplace) make this an engaging and accessible resource for students.
Joan Swann, Open University, UK
This book offers a stimulating appraisal of a range of language and gender
theories. It places a particular emphasis upon current constructionist and
discursive approaches, and gives an excellent survey of recent research
studies. MA and 3rd year undergraduates will benefit enormously from this
lucid guide to the field.
Judith Baxter, University of Reading, UK
