Description - Gendered Talk at Work by Janet Holmes

Gendered Talk at Work examines how women and men negotiate their gender identities as well as their professional roles in everyday workplace communication. * written accessibly by one of the field's foremost researchers * explores the ways in which gender contributes to the interpretation of meaning in workplace interaction * uses original and insightfully analyzed data to focus on the ways in which both women and men draw on gendered discourse resources to enact a range of workplace roles * illustrates how a qualitative analysis of workplace discourse can throw light on the many ways in which workplace discourse provides a resource for constructing gender identity as one component of our complex socio-cultural identity
