Positioning Gender in Discourse introduces a newly emerging
approach to the analysis of talk. Feminist Post-structuralist
Discourse Analysis (FPDA) offers a means of analyzing the ways in
which speakers construct their gendered identities within a complex
web of power relations. The FPDA approach challenges the
traditional feminist view that females are often disempowered
within mixed-sex settings. The FPDA approach to analyzing talk
shows that both male and female speakers are constantly shifting
between positions of powerfulness and powerlessness - even within
the same conversation. The methodology is demonstrated through a
study of teenagers' conversations in class and a study of senior
managers' discussions in business meetings, concluding with
suggestions that while female speakers are often 'silenced' by
dominant social discourses, they are far from uniformly powerless.
