Abstract or Description

Gender and Spoken Interaction presents a diverse collection of gender research with an exclusive focus on spoken interaction. Now in paperback, this volume explores how gender is reflected and accomplished in a wide range of lively talk from speakers across all life stages, from different ethnic, social, national and linguistic backgrounds, in both private and institutional contexts. The volume explores topics such as the interaction in private and institutional talk between gender and other identity positions such as sexuality, social class and ethnicity, the relationship between local interactional practices and larger-scale ideologies, and how analysis of spoken interaction can contribute to traditional feminist debates about gender inequality. With a strong methodological and analytical framework, these areas are be explored on the basis of spoken interactional data from British school children; adolescents from working and middle-class backgrounds; London private school girls; British Asian university students; UK and New Zealand company directors and employees; male-identified Hindi-English speaking women in New Delhi; and Austrian Jewish refugees.
