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.

"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."
