Here are the show notes for Episode 42, the first part of a Language & Gender double episode special, in which we talk to Deborah Cameron, Professor in Language and Communication at Worcester College, Oxford about:

  • Robin Lakoff 50 years on from Language and Woman’s Place

  • Where language & gender research has headed post-Lakoff

  • Deborah Cameron’s forthcoming book, Language, Sexism and Misogyny 

  • What kinds of more recent research we could be looking at for the A Level

  • Online misogyny and Disney princesses

  • The other Deborah (Tannen)

We’ll be back soon with a follow-up episode in which we look at how we can approach the teaching of language and gender in a world that’s changed since the earliest days of research into this field.
