Disorderly discourse narrative, conflict, & inequality by Charles L Briggs( )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,141 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

Hispano folklife of New Mexico : the Lorin W. Brown Federal Writers' Project manuscripts by Lorin W Brown( Book )

6 editions published between 1878 and 1978 in English and held by 374 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
