"Topics include the evolution of gossip, the convergence of print and orality in women's writing, the construction and performance of gendered behavior and the way communication is mediated through current technologies. These essays explore how oral communication can be an empowering, subversive act capable of working against the mandates of patriarchal discourses in the 21st century"--Provided by publisher.
