GENPARDIS is an interdisciplinary project that explores parliamentary discourse practices (particularly in the U.K. Parliament, the Swedish Riksdagen and the French Assemblée nationale) from a gender perspective by combining relevant linguistic and rhetorical research with political history and gender studies. By taking full account of the specific historical conditions and socio-cultural traditions of the parliaments under scrutiny, the project examines the ways in which ideological commitments, socio-historical traditions, party affiliations, institutional constraints and debating styles reflect and, at the same time, foster shifting attitudes to gender relations in parliament, to female MPs’ participation in political agenda-setting, as well as to male MPs’ attitudes and reactions to female MPs’ speaking styles and institutional positioning.
