Inno­va­tions and chal­lenges: women, lan­guage and sex­ism
Buchcovernno­va­tions and Chal­lenges: Women, Lan­guage and Sex­ism brings togeth­er an out­stand­ing col­lec­tion of essays from inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised researchers to recon­tex­tu­alise some of the ques­tions raised by fem­i­nist thinkers 40 years ago. By tak­ing lin­guis­ti­cal­ly medi­at­ed vio­lence as a cen­tral top­ic, this collection’s main objec­tive is to explore the dif­fer­ent and sub­tle ways sex­ism and vio­lence are mate­ri­alised in dis­cur­sive prac­tices. In doing so, this book:
— Takes a mul­ti-strand­ed inves­ti­ga­tion into the lin­guis­tic and semi­otic rep­re­sen­ta­tions of sex­ism in soci­eties from an applied lin­guis­tic and semi­otic per­spec­tive;
— Com­bines crit­i­cal dis­course analy­sis, mul­ti­modal­i­ty, inter­ac­tion­al soci­olin­guis­tics and cor­pus method­olo­gies to look at lan­guage, visu­als and semi­otic resources in the con­text of con­sumerist cul­ture;
— Exam­ines the con­flict­ed posi­tion of women and the dis­cours­es of dis­crim­i­na­tion that still exist in every strand of mod­ern soci­eties;
— Con­tex­tu­alis­es per­va­sive gen­der issues and reviews key gen­der and lan­guage top­ics that changed the ways we inter­pret inter­ac­tion from the ear­ly 1970s until the present;
— Focus­es on insti­tu­tion­al dis­cours­es and the ques­tions of how women are exclud­ed or dis­crim­i­nat­ed against in the work­place, the law and edu­ca­tion­al con­texts.
Inno­va­tions and Chal­lenges: Women, Lan­guage and Sex­ism revis­its the ini­tial ques­tions posed by the first fem­i­nist lin­guists – where, when and how are women dis­crim­i­nat­ed against and why, in post­mod­ern soci­eties, is there so much sex­ism in all realms of social life? This book is essen­tial read­ing for those study­ing and research­ing gen­der across a wide range of dis­ci­plines.

Nar­ra­tives of Mon­ey & Crime: Neolib­er­al­ism in Film, Lit­er­a­ture and Pop­u­lar Cul­ture
BuchcoverWhat do druglo­rds, cor­rupt politi­cians, failed states and distopias, men­tal dis­or­ders, scam­ming prac­tices and fem­i­nism have in com­mon? They all are actors and prod­ucts of the com­plex inter­sec­tions between mon­ey and crime that not only per­me­ate our dai­ly lives, but also pro­duce worlds and nar­ra­tives with­in their respec­tive cul­tur­al prod­ucts. From Hol­ly­wood dystopias to Net­flix and TV series about Wall Street and Brazil­ian and Mex­i­can pol­i­tics, to fetishism and con­spir­a­cy to men­tal dis­or­ders in the work­place, the con­tri­bu­tions to this vol­ume explore the com­plex rela­tions of neolib­er­al­ism and crime. The main objec­tive of the pub­li­ca­tion is to exam­ine such cul­tur­al and medi­al pro­duc­tions in order to dif­fer­en­ti­ate the dis­course about them and to enable a con­crete pic­ture of the under­ly­ing con­stituents.
