Book Announcement: Grue - Disability and Discourse Analysis

(03-03-2015)

Ashgate are pleased to announce the release of Jan Grue’s new book, Disability and Discourse Analysis (Pub date 08 January 2015).
 
Although efforts have been made to integrate disability into the discourse analysis and conversation analysis canon, the link between the two fields needs to be strengthened. This ground-breaking volume contributes to this link by thoroughly applying the analytical vocabulary of discourse analysis to issues that are central to the field of disability studies. It strengthens disability studies by supplying case studies of representations and constructions of disability and disabled people in discourse, theorizes the role played by language in the social construction of disability, and makes disability a more salient topic for discourse analysts.

Verbal and Visual Rhetoric in a Media World

Edited by Hilde van Belle, Paul Gillaerts, Baldwin van Gorp, Dorien van de Mieroop, Kris Rutten
Leiden University Press [Rhetoric in Society Series]


Since Aristotle, the study of rhetoric has focused on the persuasive aspect of verbal discourse in the political, forensic and ceremonial domains. Rhetoric deals with doxa, with public discourse and persuasion as they develop in a world with no absolute knowledge, certainty or fixity. Changing cultural and political conditions urge us to discuss the status, scope and value of rhetorical studies as a discipline. One of these conditions is the increasing influence of visual communication. This collection brings together work that examines how rhetoric functions at this moment and how it balances tradition and renewal.

Book Announcement: Van Belle et al - Let's Talk Politics

(28-08-2014)

Let's talk politics. New essays on deliberative rhetoric 

Edited by Hilde Van Belle, Kris Rutten, Paul Gillaerts, Dorien Van De Mieroop and Baldwin Van Gorp
John Benjamins Publishing Company [Argumentation-in-Context Series]


In this volume on political argumentation, the study of argument takes place within a rhetorical framework. As such, it is a contribution to the study of argumentation-in-context with an explicit rhetorical approach. Rather than focusing on the poor quality of political participation and political understanding by citizens, this volume explores how the study of rhetoric, both as an academic discipline and as a political practice, stands in a unique position to critically engage with a ‘contextualized’ understanding of politics and civic engagement.
