Voices of modernity : language ideologies and the politics of inequality by Richard Bauman( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language and tradition have long been relegated to the sidelines as scholars have considered the role of politics, science, technology and economics in the making of the modern world. This novel reading of over two centuries of philosophy, political theory, anthropology, folklore and history argues that new ways of imagining language and representing supposedly premodern people - the poor, labourers, country folk, non-europeans and women - made political and scientific revolutions possible. The connections between language ideologies, privileged linguistic codes, and political concepts and practices shape the diverse ways we perceive ourselves and others. Bauman and Briggs demonstrate that contemporary efforts to make schemes of social inequality based on race, gender, class and nationality seem compelling and legitimate, rely on deeply-rooted ideas about language and tradition. Showing how critics of modernity unwittingly reproduce these foundational fictions, they suggest new strategies for challenging the undemocratic influence of these voices of modernity
Land, water, and culture : new perspectives on Hispanic land grants( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, many Hispanic and Pueblo Indian communities were stripped of their land base and water rights, leaving a legacy of bitterness and poverty. The essays in this third volume of the New Mexico Land Grant Series explore the social, ecological, political, and legal roots of land grants whose disposition is as crucial to the survival of these communities today as it has been during the past four centuries
Hispano folklife of New Mexico : the Lorin W. Brown Federal Writers' Project manuscripts by Lorin W Brown( Book )

7 editions published between 1878 and 1978 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For generations the remote villages of northern New Mexico lay virtually undisturbed, quietly passing through the predictable cycles of an agrarian society and preserving a colonial Hispanic culture unique to the United States Fortunately, many of the old traditions were preserved through the work of Lorin W. Brown who was born and raised in New Mexico. In the late 1930s he was employed by the New Mexico Federal Writers' Project to document the folklife of Hispanic northern New Mexico. Brown produced almost 200 manuscripts, all based on his interviews with many elderly residents of Cordova, Truchas, and other isolated communities., thus preserving an oral history stretching back to the late 18th century"--Amazon
Disorderly discourse : narrative, conflict, & inequality( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Involving everything from war to playground disputes, narratives generate, sustain, mediate, and represent conflict at levels of social organization. Still, despite the vast amount of research that has been conducted on conflict and narrative in a number of disciplines, the way they interrelate has seldom been explored in any depth; in fact, most studies treat narrative merely as a source of information about conflict rather then as a part of conflict processes. The contributors to this collection argue that language consists of socially and politically situated practices that are differentially distributed on the basis of gender, class, race, ethnicity, and other categories. They draw on new approaches to the study of both discourse and political processes in challenging previous assumptions about narrative and social conflict as they interpret disputes that emerge in a variety of settings in Brazil, Fiji, Crete, Mexico, the United States, and Venezuela. These essays substantially further our theoretical and methodological understanding of narrative and conflict and how they intersect
