Producing and Responding to –isms in Interaction
Whitehead, Kevin A.
We provide an introduction to some of the conceptual and methodological debates with respect to the focus of this special issue on –isms (a term used to refer to phenomena such as racism, sexism, and heterosexism), focusing on the definition and identification of these phenomena. We offer an overview of the different approaches to research in this regard, and conclude by summarizing the contributions to this special issue.
Racism, sexism, heterosexism, discursive psychology, membership categorization, conversation analysis
