Vicarious language gender and linguistic modernity in Japan by Miyako Inoue ( )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This highly original study provides an entirely new critical perspective on the central importance of ideas about language in the reproduction of gender, class, and race divisions in modern Japan. Focusing on a phenomenon commonly called "women's language," in modern Japanese society, Miyako Inoue considers the history and social effects of this language form. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a contemporary Tokyo corporation to study the everyday linguistic experience of white-collar females office workers and on historical research from the late nineteenth century to 1930, she calls into

The spectacle of the self by Lise Meir Marken ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This project proposes an understanding of press power that focuses on the formation of the individual self and explores the role the press plays in crafting our sense of what it means to be a person. It argues that cultural approaches to the study of American journalism (which emphasize journalism's story-telling and common-sense-making roles over its role in information-transfer role) don't currently have an effective way of understanding press power. The model of power I propose to fill this gap is closely connected to the work of Michel Foucault and focuses on the intersection of visibility, truth, and the individual subject. The project's empirical investigation investigates seven news stories from major metropolitan newspapers in the U.S. and brings interviews with journalists and readers together with textual analysis of the stories themselves, emails written by readers directly to the journalist and published letters to the editor about the stories. The analysis reveals the importance of culpability questions as a mechanism for constructing the personhoods of the people in the paper and suggests that the these questions along with the righteous indignation they trigger function as tools that help make people available as recognizable subjects to the workings of power

Gei Debyuu desire among Japanese and non-Japanese men in Tokyo, Japan by Jeffery Bolton ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Abstract: This project is a cultural analysis of sexuality and race in Tokyo, Japan. Through an ethnographic study of Japanese and non-Japanese gay men who are interested in having international romantic relationships, I investigate how gay men, both Japanese and non-Japanese, become a part of Tokyo's gay social network and appropriate, manipulate, and amplify ideas of race to understand and explain their sexual activity and desires. Informants were drawn from an English language class organized for gay men and from Japanese and non-Japanese men who regularly patronized three foreigner-friendly bars in Shinjuku Ni-chome, Tokyo's largest gay bar area. An historical survey, an analysis of contemporary media, and ethnographic data collected over eighteen months (2006-2007) are presented to demonstrate the micro-processes of cultural construction of sexual and racial identity in Tokyo, particularly in relation to contemporary Japanese LGBT identity formation
Language, ideology and identity in rural eastern Kentucky by Rebecca Dayle Greene ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Linguists still know relatively little about the speech of the rural US South, in part because rural speech is thought to be more conservative than urban speech with regard to language change. In order to fill in a gap in our dialect map and explore the innovative capacity of rural speakers, this dissertation examines language use in its social context in Wilson County (a pseudonym), a small rural community in Eastern Kentucky. Data come from interviews with thirty women, stratified by age and education level, who have spent most of their lives in the community. I employ a combination of ethnographic and quantitative methods to analyze interviewees' use of three local dialect features, monophthongization of /ay/ before voiceless consonants (n=270), raising and fronting of /^/ (n=309), and leveling of standard-were to was (n=450). Results show that speakers use pre-voiceless /ay/-monophthongization and /^/- fronting and raising nearly categorically, but use was-leveling infrequently. Metapragmatic commentary indicates that the overall low level of morphosyntactic variation is driven by standard language ideology (Lippi-Green 1997) and negative ideologies that characterize rural and Mountain Southerners as old-fashioned, unsophisticated and ignorant. Such commentary also indicates that, inversely, the high use of local phonetic features is motivated by those same negative ideologies about rural and Mountain Southerners: Wilson Countians appear to have developed a strong sense of local identity and pride in oppositional reaction to cultural and linguistic marginalization. I conclude that speakers combine strongly locally-accented phonology with relatively prescriptive grammar in an effort to appear local and authentic, yet at the same time competent and modern. As predicted, younger and more-educated speakers use less of the local phonetic features than older and college-educated speakers do. More-educated speakers also use less was-leveling than less-educated speakers do. Mainstream language norms appear to be entering the community through those speakers who feel the greatest pressure to appear competent and modern. The high rate of pre-voiceless /ay/-monophthongization (a relatively new Southern feature), as well as the complete reorganization of linguistic constraints on wasleveling since Northern British settled the region, indicate that rural speech can be highly innovative

The state in training European Union accession and the making of human rights in Turkey by Elif Muyesser Babul ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation traces the route and a key mechanism through which human rights continues to infuse into the state domain in Turkey. At its focus are the human rights training programs for state officials and government workers, held in line with Turkey's pending accession to the European Union (EU). In this ethnographic study of those training programs, I aim to scrutinize both the everyday governmental configurations of Turkey's accession to the EU and the effects of the particular framing of human rights engendered by the accession process. Built around these two main pillars, this study emerges in conversation with both the anthropological studies of transnational governance and the anthropology of human rights. Human rights training programs are part of a larger process to transform the national governmental field in line with good governance in Turkey. They are complementary to the legal amendments, and they aim to bring about attitudinal and behavioral transformation in the everyday agents and practitioners of governance. The contradiction between these agents' professional socialization, reflecting the nationalist imaginary that dominates the Turkish governmental realm, and the country's obligations arising from its EU candidacy designates training programs as highly contested sites. These sites, as such, display the complex everyday dynamics of transnational standardization processes. Integration of human rights into the governmental domain requires disassociating human rights from their established political connotations, and re-framing them instead as relevant to and compatible with practices of national governance. This is achieved by formulating human rights as a requirement of expertise and professionalism to which all state officials should subscribe in order to better perform their jobs. My work focuses on how this re-framing is administered, and how it is received by the state officials and government workers who participate in human rights training programs. By analyzing the wider implications, and both the intended and unintended consequences of human rights training programs, this dissertation also seeks to understand the constitutive terms and building blocks of the governmental sphere in Turkey, which an attention to the re-framing of human rights and its reception by the state officials helps illuminate

Show me your listening position embodied silence and speech in a second grade class of language-minority students by Sara Rutherford-Quach ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Previous scholarship identifies silence as one of the most pervasive yet least analyzed communicative behaviors in U.S. classrooms. Most studies of classroom interaction focus solely on verbal communication. In contrast, this study examines the silences that accompany the speech of language-minority students as well as the circumstances that contribute to silence or create space for talk. Its findings demonstrate that although silence is commonly thought of as an absence of speech, in this class silence had a palpable presence. The findings identify and categorize different silence types and subtypes, which accomplished different kinds of interactive and sociocultural work. Finally, the study illustrates how listening for silence can reveal insights about talk as well as how participants attend to knowledge and learning
