Gender and discourse interface in many more epistemological sites than can be represented in one collection. <i>Gender Identity and Discourse Analysis </i>therefore focuses on a principled diversity of key sites within four broad areas: the media, sexuality, education and parenthood. The different chapters together illustrate how taking a discourse perspective facilitates understanding of the complex and subtle ways in which gender is represented, constructed and contested through language. <br />The book engages critically with long-running and on-going debates, but also reflects and develops current understandings of gender, identity and discourse, particularly the shift from 'gender differences' to the discoursal shaping of gender. <i>Gender Identity and Discourse Analysis </i>thus offers not only insights and methodologies of new empirical studies but also careful theorisations, in particular of <i>discourse</i>, <i>text</i>, <i>identity </i>and <i>gender</i>. <br />The collection is a valuable resource for researchers, postgraduates and advanced undergraduates working in the area of gender and discourse. <br /><br />
