Contemporary Gender Communication Theories and Analyses surveys the field of gender and communication with a particular focus on gender and communication theories and methods. How have theories about gender and communication evolved and been influenced by first-, second-, and third-wave feminisms? And similarly, how have feminist communication scholars been inspired by existing methods and aspired to generate their own? The goal of the text is to help readers develop analytic focus and knowledge about their underlying assumptions that gender communication scholars use in their work.

Features and benefits:

- applies theoretical and methodological lenses to contemporary cases, allowing readers to see gender and communcation theory work in action;

- presents a comprehensive introduction to particular feminist theories and methodologies;

- provides effective end-of-chapter cases and sample analyses that help readers see the kinds of questions and analyses that a particular theory and method bring into play;

- discusses contemporary research in gender and communication and expands on future directions for research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book presents some ongoing struggles and tensions in feminist work as researchers and theorists carve niches, expand knowledge, and strive for legitimacy in the academy...This is a book to which I am going to return again and again because of its remarkable synthesis of past and present feminist communication work as well as its look toward the future. The examples throughout are vivid and compelling and the primary focus on the performance lens offers much to identity, cultural, and political communication and feminist studies. It is an excellent resource or springboard for future scholarship as well as a riveting and coherent analysis of scholarship that can challenge advanced students in feminist and communication studies courses. My congratulations to Krolokke and Scott Sorensen for authoring such an interesting and needed book."

"Fresh, sophisticated, and rigorous, Gender Communication Theories and Analyses brings gender and communication studies into the `third wave' of feminism and the new millennium of communication studies. Krolokke and Scott Sorensen present an able and insightful guide to the diverse and changing ways that feminist scholars in communication, linguistics, and cultural studies have theorized and researched gender communication as dominance, identity and difference, and performance. The text's innovative format links theory to research methodologies illustrated by case studies of face-to-face and computer-mediated communication. This book offers rich possibilities as a foundational text in advanced courses on gender and communication and as a valuable resource for researchers--we have been waiting for this book."

----Kristin M. Langellier, University of Maine -- Kristin M. Langellier
"Gender Communication Theories and Analyses: From Silence to Performance is an innovative analysis of contemporary feminist communication theories and methods. The book is both a thought-provoking analysis of feminist scholarship and an inspiration to innovative theorizing on gender and communication. Overall, the authors have made an invaluable contribution to ongoing feminist scholarship. Their book brings together watershed ideas on feminist theorizing and methods in an elucidating and far reaching analysis of conceptual traditions and new directions in feminist communication studies. I highly recommend this book for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses and for anyone journeying into feminist theorizing." -- Dr. Laura Prividera
