This collection of critical essays, originally published in Pragmatics and Society 1:2 (2010), discusses how normative biases that shape our relation to the world are constructed through discursive practice in media discourse. The intertextual perspective it adopts is crucial for our understanding of how media representations of speakers and languages shape many of our preconceptions of others. Mediatization is inherently intertextual; the very nature of this process involves extracting the speech behavior of particular speakers or groups from a highly specific context and refracting and reshaping it to be inserted in another stream of representation. The notion of intertextuality becomes a useful concept for the linguistic anthropological study of media discourse in the context of modernity, as it provides us with a tool for exploring the semiotic processes that underlie the way in which the media negotiate and reinscribe the complex relationships of identity that characterize late modern subjecthood.

Im Zentrum der interdisziplinären Genderforschung steht die Frage, wie soziale Wahrnehmung zur Konstruktion von Geschlecht beiträgt. Die teils theoretisch, teils empirisch angelegten Beiträge diskutieren aus historischer, literaturwissenschaftlicher, linguistischer, naturwissenschaftlicher, soziologischer und sozialpsychologischer Sicht, wie Frauen und Männer wahrgenommen und bewertet werden und welche Eigenschaften und Verhaltensweisen den Geschlechtern zugeschrieben werden. Sind Geschlechterdifferenzen das Ergebnis geschlechtstypischen Verhaltens oder lassen sie sich eher auf geschlechtsstereotype Vorstellungen und Erwartungen zurückführen? Die Vielfalt der hier eingenommenen Perspektiven behandelt die Komplexität der sozialen Konstruktion von Geschlecht, in der die Wahrnehmung und Herstellung von Geschlecht unabdingbar wechselseitig miteinander verbunden sind.
