chapterposted on 03.04.2017 by Malgorzata Chalupnik, Christine Christie, Louise Mullany
Division of a book, which in a scholarly context usually treats a part of a larger subject in a stand-alone manner.
The chapter maps out key developments in the scholarship on gender and (im)politeness, focusing initially on theories and concepts which advanced the field and contributed to its theoretical and methodological sophistication. The authors chronologically catalogue the most seminal work on gender and language, highlighting the significant role that gender has played in politeness research since its inception until now. Aiming to facilitate the production of contemporary research in the field, the chapter also presents specific examples of recent studies which shed light on how the interdependencies between (im)politeness, gender and various types of identities can be productively explored. ‘Gender and (im)politeness’ concludes with an overview of avenues for future research, shedding light on under-investigated topics such as intersectionality and globalisation
