Discourse, the Body and Identity by Justine Coupland

Book Description

The 'body' and 'discourse' seem diametrically opposed, but we interact with our bodies and represent ourselves and our relationships in bodily terms. This volume integrates new studies by leading researchers in sociolinguistics, sociology, social psychology and cultural theory. It explores the many interfaces of body and discourse, organized under three main themes: the body as an interactional resource; ideological representations of the body; and discursive constructions of the body in normal and pathological contexts.

Books By Author Justine Coupland

Contexts of Accommodation by Justine Coupland Contexts of Accommodation, Paperback (February 2010)

In Contexts of Accommodation, accommodation theory is presented as a basis for sociolinguistic explanation, and it is the applied perspective that predominates this edited collection.

Handbook of Communication and Aging Research by Justine Coupland Handbook of Communication and Aging Research, Paperback (March 2004)

This work shows that aging is not only an individual process but an interactive one. The study of communication can lead to an understanding of what it means to grow old. Many of the chapters work to deny earlier images of aging as involving normative decrement to provide a different view of aging.
