Language and Sexuality Reader by Deborah Cameron

Book Description

The Language and Sexuality Reader is the first of its kind to bring together material from the fields of anthropology, communication studies, linguistics, medicine and psychology in an examination of the role of sexuality in written and spoken language. Organized into thematic sections, the Reader addresses: * early documentation of vocabulary used by male homosexuals and later work on the existence of a discourse style signifying gay identity * the use of language by individuals to present themselves as sexual and gendered subjects * the way language reflects, reinforces or challenges cultural norms defining what is 'natural' and desirable in the sphere of sex * the verbal communication of sexual desire in different settings, genres and media. The Language and Sexuality Reader includes extracts from: Hideko Abe, Laura M. Ahearn, Rusty Barrett, Deborah Cameron, Kathryn Campbell-Kibler, Donald W. Cory, Justine Coupland, Louie Crew, James Darsey, Penelope Eckert, Susan Ehrlich, Joseph J. Hayes, Scott F. Kiesling, Celia Kitzinger, Don Kulick, William L. Leap, Gershon Legman, Momoko Nakamura, Sally McConnell-Ginet, Julia Penelope, Robert J. Podesva, June Machover Reinisch, Sarah J. Roberts, Stephanie A. Sanders, David Sonenschein, and David Valentine.
