Textual Construction of the Female Body

This volume takes a critical discourse approach to the ways women's magazines contribute to the social construction of particular kinds of female body - as ideal, beautiful, ugly, overweight or engineered. Looking at the language used, it provides an insight into the experience of the female reader, and the likely impact upon her self-image.

Lesley Jeffries is Professor of English and Director of the Stylistics Research Centre at Huddersfield University, UK. She is co-series editor (with Dan Mcintyre) for Palgrave's Perspectives on the English Language , and has published on the style of contemporary poetry and ideology in news reporting and political discourse. She is also co-editor of Babel: The Language Magazine .
