Language and Public Culture is a resource for the study of English. The result of two courses taught by the author at Sapienza University of Rome, the book draws on a variety of texts to enhance students' critical reading skills. The volume is divided into two parts and approaches linguistic analysis from the vantage point of recent debates on key cultural issues, such as power and gender. Part I, "Political Language and Phantasy," discusses twentieth-century controversial figures of British Prime Ministers. Part II, "Masculinity, Femininity, and the Language of the Press," takes on gender representations in verbal and visual media texts and includes discussions of key twentieth-century American writers like Susan Sontag and Joan Didion.

Abstract

Language and Public Culture is a resource for the study of English. The result of two courses taught by the author at Sapienza University of Rome, the book draws on a variety of texts to enhance students' critical reading skills. The volume is divided into two parts and approaches linguistic analysis from the vantage point of recent debates on key cultural issues, such as power and gender. Part I, "Political Language and Phantasy," discusses twentieth-century controversial figures of British Prime Ministers. Part II, "Masculinity, Femininity, and the Language of the Press," takes on gender representations in verbal and visual media texts and includes discussions of key twentieth-century American writers like Susan Sontag and Joan Didion.
