Gender, Language and Discourse

By Ann Weatherall | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I wish to thank Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand for granting me fourteen months' sabbatical in order to complete this book. Thanks also to the Centre for Critical Psychology, University of Western Sydney, Australia and the Department of Psychology, University of Manchester, England for hosting me during my leave.

Thanks to all my colleagues in the School of Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand who have contributed to the environment that allowed me to write. For their specific comments and feedback I would like to thank Jiansheng Guo, David Harper, Sue Jackson, James Liu, John McClure and Sik Hung Ng.

I am also grateful to people outside my university for their encouragement and comments on various chapters. I would particularly like to acknowledge the friendship and support of Nicola Gavey and Marsha Walton.

The person whose input I have valued the most is John Haywood. Without his contagious enthusiasm for academic life, his belief in my work and the hours he dedicated to proofreading every chapter draft, this book might never have materialised.
