  • Next message: Francisco Yus: "RT list: Faulty link"

    I am currently working on a thesis that aims at taking relevance theory and
    applying it to the "Film Club" in efforts to show how "Fight Club" deals
    with gender on a relevance theory level.

    I have read Christine Christies' book Gender and Pragmatics and Francisco
    Yus's article on The Visual-Verbal Model of Relevance Theory. I am wondering
    if anybody has any suggestions on research being done in the areas of:

    1. RT and Gender (namely Feminism)
    2. RT and Fim Studies.

    Thank you for your time,
    Rene Gurley
