Gender and Sexuality in Social and Communicative Practices

    Description

    The aim of this project is to re-examine the foundations of earlier research on gender in spoken interaction, to critically appraise that research to see if and how it translates successfully into the study of sexuality in talk, and to promote innovative alternatives that integrate the insights of recent feminist and queer theory with qualitative studies of talk and conversation. Detailed empirical analyses of naturally occurring talk are used to uncover how gender and sexual identities, agencies and desires are contingently accomplished in conversational practices.
