  • Unanswered Questions and unquestioned assumptions in the study of language
           and gender: Female Verbal Superiority
    • Authors: Deborah Cameron
      Abstract: This article examines the recent rise of a neo-Darwinian discourse on language, sex differences and human evolution in which the idea that females’ verbal skills are superior to males’, and that this difference is ‘hard wired’, has become for many scholars an unquestioned assumption. I argue that this assumption relies on a selective and in some cases very inaccurate reading of the relevant linguistic evidence. At the same time I suggest that language and gender scholars, for both intellectual and political reasons, need to engage directly with the current resurgence of biological essentialism, and that this engagement needs to be with the science as well as the ideology

  • Putting communities of practice in their place
    • Authors: Penelope Eckert, Sally McConnell-Ginet
      Abstract: The study of language, gender, and sexuality has enthusiastically embraced the concept community of practice. Now the field needs to take the concept further in two directions: (1) The comparative direction examines different but similar kinds of communities of practice to explore generalizations about how practice contributes to the linguistic construction of gender and sexuality; (2) The relational direction locates communities of practice in relation to a world beyond – to other communities of practice, to social networks, to institutions (e.g. schools, churches, prisons), and to more global imagined communities (e.g. nations, women). For each direction, we mention exemplary studies, emphasizing that the construct community of practice does not offer new analytic units or replace other concepts, but provides fresh perspectives on familiar social units and enriches analyses drawing on other analytic concepts. Only an interdisciplinary research community where researchers connect their work can put communities of practice in their proper place.

  • Is 'woman' always relevantly gendered?
    • Authors: Celia Kitzinger
      Abstract: The use of categorical person reference terms such as ‘woman’, ‘gentleman’, ‘lady’, etc. (sometimes referred to as ‘membership categorisation devices’) has seemed to offer a solution to the problem of when gender is relevant in talk, since it is widely taken for granted that a speaker who refers to herself (or another) as – for example – a ‘woman’ is showing herself to be oriented to gender, thereby warranting the analyst’s treatment of her as such. Based on conversation analysis of a single recorded interaction, this paper shows that ‘woman’ is not necessarily relevantly gendered for participants, and that – even when it is – it is not only gender, and in fact not most saliently gender, that is always achieved through its use. It suggests that an exclusive preoccupation with the production of the category term ‘woman’ and its associated attributes as the main focus of analysis obscures the actions in which participants are also, or otherwise, engaged.

  • Social constructionism, postmodernism and feminist sociolinguistics
    • Authors: Janet Holmes
      Abstract: This article argues that it is time to put women back at the centre of language and gender research. Following a discussion of some issues with social constructionist and postmodernist approaches to the analysis of gendered social interaction, a case is made for identifying general (often repressive or constricting) patterns based on analyses using a detailed ethnographic approach. More specifically, the paper outlines the advantages of using a community of practice approach to analysing workplace discourse, providing evidence of the ‘gender order’, the repressive ideology which ensures that deviations from gender norms (by women or men) entail penalties. It is argued that such an approach provides a means of identifying discursive behaviours which penalise women in many workplace contexts on the one hand, while documenting a range of active discursive ways of resisting sexist behaviours on the other.

  • Language and gender research at the intersection of the global and local
    • Authors: Niko Besnier
      Abstract: While globalization has become a central lens through which social scientists have reframed old questions in the last couple of decades, students of language and gender in their sociocultural context have been slower to do so. Yet global processes are of concern to people’s daily lives in all contemporary societies, as they gender themselves and each other through the intersubjective negotiation of the intersection of the global and the local. This paper illustrates these processes with two examples from Tonga, and proposes that attention to the global can enrich our understanding of both the gendering of everyday life and global processes.

  • Language and gender in an age of neoliberalism
    • Authors: Miyako Inoue
      Abstract: We live at a time when neoliberalism – market fundamentalism – appears to organize not only global and national political-economies but also ‘non-economic’ spheres, including one’s personal sense of identity, interests, happiness, hopes, and even the subjective value of life and self. And this article examines the significance of neoliberalism for the critical study of language and gender. Central to my discussion is the concept of neoliberal governmentality, a distinctive mode of power, which both constitutes the free subject and shapes the way a free subject acts upon her freedom and works and desires herself into a responsibilized individual. I analyze a case of workplace gender equity programs in a Tokyo corporate office in the early 1990s. I demonstrate how this problematization of a particular modality of linguistic practice was linked to the active ethical and aesthetic relationship to the self, and how this relationship among gender and language mediated by neoliberal governmentality worked as a concrete technique of self-making.
