In a search for a deeper understanding of the complex relationship of gender and language alongside religious identity, this book puts forward current studies from around the world emerging from the field of linguistics. The book connects language use to both a religious and gender identity. By pulling together the lived experiences of people in various communities, the linguistic field can reflect on how language works to unite, oppress, liberate or fracture the various participants.
ALLYSON JULE is Associate Professor of Education and Co-Director of the Gender Studies Institute at Trinity Western University, Canada. She is the author of Participation and Silence in the Language Classroom and editor of Gender and the Language Religion and Being Feminist, Being Christian.
