Florida Studies: Proceedings of the 2007 Annual Meeting of the Florida College English Association

Claudia Slate and Keith Huneycutt, 9781847186294


Included in this volume are essays on various aspects of Florida Literature and history by scholars from across the state representing every kind of institution of higher learning. Of special interest are the studies of Florida literature in the 19th Century and in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, areas that are generally underrepresented in national journals. The papers on the contributions of African- America figures, such as Zora Neale Hurston, are noteworthy. Of particular interest are the suggestions for teaching Florida Studies in the classroom, which can be adapted for high school as well as college students.

Popular Media and Communication: Essays on Publics, Practices and Processes

Karen Ross and Stuart Price, 9781847186263


This collection of essays has its origins in the MeCCSA 2007 conference held in Coventry in January that year. Like most edited volumes which emerge from conference contexts, this one comprises a richly diverse set of original papers which span the various themes and topics which together make up the fascinating field of media and communication. The book is broadly divided into four sections: media/public; media workers and professional identity; media industries and policy concerns; and political communication. The first section looks at the transformation of the private and public spheres through new technologies, and the phenomenon and implications of audience-mediated genres such as reality TV. The second part of the book looks at media practice from the point of view of both content and the self-policing of professional norms. The third part considers media policy including gender issues within the Scottish creative industries, and the history and future of the BBC charter. The last section looks a political communication and essays here are concerned with elite political rhetoric, together with a consideration of the internet’s impact on political activism. The editors believe that, within the wide-ranging subject matter our authors have considered, a common theme emerges. This is the way in which contemporary communication acts are structured by a number of closely related forces; capital, technology, social norms, resistive practices and gendered subjectivity all contribute to the production of public meaning.

Rhetorical Aspects of Discourses in Present-Day Society

Lotte Dam, Lise-Lotte Holmgreen and Jeanne Strunck, 9781847186591


Since antiquity, the notion of rhetoric has been associated with Aristotle, Cicero and Quintilian. Their theories are central to the understanding that, on the one hand, rhetoric can be used for persuading and convincing an audience, and on the other, for becoming an eloquent speaker. Based on this understanding, the study of rhetoric was for many years regarded by scholars as a meaningless enterprise as it was perceived as a study of linguistic ornamentation.


However, in the beginning of the twentieth century, scholars regained an interest in the study of rhetoric in recognition of rhetorical skills being important for communication in modern society. Like speakers in public life, e.g. politicians, who had always acknowledged the role of rhetoric, all sorts of communicators, mediators and scholars became interested in rhetoric as a practical tool for building up texts meant for the public sphere as well as an analytical tool for the critique of public argumentation. This led to the development of new theories from New Rhetoric over Rhetorical Criticism to theories of genre and discourse, reflecting the view that rhetoric must be understood and used against the social and cultural framework in which it is embedded.


The contributions of this book reflect this multi-faceted approach to rhetoric, discourse and genre through their focus upon and analysis of different institutionalised discourses. Thus, within the three sections of political, journalistic and organisational discourse, the articles discuss various discourse types and their rhetorical features, contributing to the understanding of rhetoric and discourse having significant influence on human action and interaction in society.

Space of a Garden – Space of Culture

Grzegorz Gazda and Mariusz Golab, 9781847186270


The book presents the phenomenon of the garden and its various cultural features. It compares historical aspects of the garden with its contemporary models and focuses on various cultural traditions and different ways of presentation of this problem, in the context of world literature, problems of visual arts, questions of architecture, ecology, universal aspects of language, as well as philosophical problems of axiology and aesthetics. All those contexts combine to form a picture of a phenomenon that could be called “the metaphor of the garden”, containing a universal anthropological image of “space” in which dynamic re-evaluation of rhetorical models take place and the order of Nature complements cultural models of human understanding of reality.

The Archaeology of Destruction

Lila Rakoczy, 9781847186249


Buildings and landscapes are traditionally analysed with their construction and use in mind, with less interest shown in their destruction or ‘end’. This innovative book, canvassing the opinions of historians, archaeologists, and other professionals, highlights the complexity of destruction both as a concept and a phenomenon. Drawing from a variety of time periods and cultures, it explores the multiplicity of meanings that destruction can have, and the many complications this creates. Included in this are the politics behind how destruction is remembered (or forgotten), the logistical and ethical dilemmas it presents us with, and the power tensions and transitions that often accompany it.


One of the most fundamental themes explored in this book is what destruction is: who defines it and how we choose to recognise it, and why these questions need to be debated. It clearly demonstrates the importance of understanding the complexity of destructive acts, and argues that the best way to achieve this is by establishing channels of dialogue between archaeologists and other disciplines.

The Arts and Youth at Risk: Global and Local Challenges

Angela O’Brien and Kate Donelan, 9781847186324


The Arts and Youth at Risk: Global and Local Challenges is a contribution to the lively international dialogue about creative and arts-based interventions for young people categorized as “at risk”. It contains chapters written by internationally recognized researchers and practitioners in arts education, youth arts and criminology.

The instrumental benefit of arts participation for disadvantaged and marginalized young people is an area of increasing interest worldwide. This body of research highlights the positive educational and social outcomes of arts programs within and outside the schooling system. It also interrogates the ethics of arts interventions in a diverse and socially inequitable global context. The book questions the motivations of those working with “at risk” youth and challenges practitioners to ensure that their work with marginalised communities is efficacious as well as socially and politically responsible.


Professor Shirley Brice Heath describes this book as “philosophically complex and pragmatically provocative”. She commends the editors and authors for taking “the brave stance of interrogating the consequences, trajectories, and effects of participation in the arts by young people – especially those who carry labels such as at risk.” She calls attention to the critical need as outlined in this volume to consider contextual background as well as an international perspective on children and youth when planning and delivering social and arts-based interventions.

Travellers and Showpeople: Recovering Migrant History

Míchéal Ó hAodha , 9781847186362


The late-twentieth century has witnessed a particular prominence assigned to the discourses of “difference” and “Otherness”. An examination of this “othering” discourse as related to Travellers, Gypsies and Showpeople ennumerates the projective function of the “Othering” process, a form of rejection and marginalisation that is the institutionalization of ideas which are seldom challenged. The history of Traveller and Gypsy “Othering” in Europe points to the constant re-articulation of reductionist stereotypes as applied to a wide range of nomadic peoples and the creation of a mythic Traveller/Gypsy prototype that is based on a series of endlessly repeated generalizations which gradually assume the status of an objective “truth”. This discourse of representation has culminated in powerful institutional attitudes, many of which have influenced official and policy responses to these minorities. This volume brings to surface the “hidden histories” and discourses of the “peoples of the road”, those migratory peoples whose unique expressions of identity have often hitherto remained occluded.


We live in the era of the Other, the era of “difference”, the era of migration - that “stranger” who waits silently at the border crossing, battered suitcase in hand. Travellers and Roma are the archetypal migrants. Perennial “outsiders”, they are the people who have lived on society’s margins for centuries. This volume explores the history of these traditionally migrant peoples within the frame of articulation that is Western literary and visual culture.
