Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis

  • SHARE:

Feminist critical discourse, at the nexus of critical discourse studies and feminist linguistics, deals with critique of unequal social arrangements sustained through language use, in view of goals of social transformation and emancipation. Contributors in this volume advance rich and nuanced analyses of the complex workings of power and ideology in discourse in sustaining an heirarchically gendered social order. Grounded in empirical studies drawn from a range of cultural, geographical and institutional settings, the discussion of discourse strategies and structures explored in Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis shows the complex and subtle ways in which taken-for-granted social assumptions of gender and hegemonic power relations are discursively (re)produced, negotiated and contested.
