My research interests are located in the areas of Critical Discourse Analysis, Systemic Functional Linguistics and Gender/Feminist Studies, with an emphasis on the representation/construal of gender identities, gender roles and women’s rights. For a number of years I investigated the representation of female embodied identities in the discourse of women’s magazines, and how these identities are built on a consumerist basis. More recently,  my focus of interest is the discourse of the judiciary (both in legislation and in judicial decisions), particularly how the judiciary understands and advances (or not) the human rights of women and their access to full citizenship.
