Tangoing with Sexuality

Margaux Haimé
This paper aims to explore character development in the BBC-series Last Tango in Halifax through a ultimodal analysis using conversation analysis and politeness theory. It analyses the expression of homosexuality by one of its characters, and how language reflects the growth in character and confidence. Both the content (written) and manner of speech (spoken) are examined, and a decrease in politeness strategies and normal nonfluency markers could be observed over the course of the series.
