Jodie Clark

Dr Jodie Clark

Senior Lecturer In English


Jodie chose linguistics as an area of study when she discovered how much is revealed when you look closely at people’s ‘everyday’ language use – particularly what it reveals about social structure. Her recent book Selves, Bodies and the Grammar of Social Worlds: Reimagining Social Change (under contract with Palgrave) illustrates how the grammatical analysis of everyday accounts reveals innovative ways of imagining social structure. Her analysis of conversational texts reveals a way of seeing the social world as in an embodied relationship with embodied selves. The method of analysis Jodie uses is informed by Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and postmodern social theory.
