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 this text is to help readers develop analytic focus and knowledge about their underlying assumptions that gender communication scholars use in their work. The features and benefits are: it applies theoretical and methodological lenses to contemporary cases, allowing readers to see gender and communication theory work in action; it presents a comprehensive introduction to particular feminist theories and methodologies; it 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; and also discusses contemporary research in gender and communication and expands on future directions for research.
