9780857458001: Culture, Rhetoric and the Vicissitudes of Life (Studies in Rhetoric and Culture)

Inspired by the Rhetoric Culture Project, this volume focuses on the use of imagery, narrative, and cultural schemes to deal with predicaments that arise during the course of life. The contributors explore how people muster their resources to understand and deal with emergencies such as illness, displacement, or genocide. In dealing with such circumstances, people can develop new rhetorical forms and, in the process, establish new cultural resources for succeeding generations. Several of the contributions show how rhetorical cultural forms can themselves create emergencies. The contributors bring expertise from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology and communications studies, underlining the volume's wider relevance as a reflection on the human condition.

Review:

"...a fine collection of essays illuminating situation uses of narratives, images and tropes that are not contemplated as 'explanations' but as cultural resources mobilized to impart meaning and order when facing concrete circumstances...a great variety of excellent analyses going beyond the disciplinary boundaries of anthropology...this book is a welcome contribution and the project I belongs to offers one of the most important shifts in European anthropology in the coming decade."  ·  Social Anthropology/Anthropologie sociale
