About this book

Feminist Poststructuralist Discourse Analysis helps analyse how speakers construct their gendered identities within a complex web of power relations. Demonstrated here through a study of teenagers' conversation in class and senior managers' discussions in business meetings, it challenges the view that females are disempowered in mixed-sex settings.

Reviews

'The strength of the book lies in the theoretical chapters that clearly define components of FDPA. Overall, Baxter makes a convincing case for the usefulness of FDPA as a supplementary tool in the discourse analyst's repertoire' - Adam Hodges, University of Colorado, in Discourse & Society .
