Con­tact Lan­guages and Music
BuchcoverLan­guage and music are con­nect­ed in many ways. As social and cul­tur­al prac­tices, they have been inter­twined in mul­ti­ple ways. Musi­cal and lin­guis­tic prac­tices are often inter­twined to express dis­tinct and com­plex iden­ti­ties, atti­tudes, ide­olo­gies, social roles and polit­i­cal views. Spaces char­ac­ter­ized by migra­tion, con­tact, mul­ti­lin­gual­ism, and colo­nial inequal­i­ties, are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ing for the study of the inter­sec­tions between lan­guage and music.
This vol­ume is the first book-length account of con­tact lan­guages and music. It offers a stim­u­lat­ing col­lec­tion of con­tri­bu­tions on dif­fer­ent ter­ri­to­ries, mul­ti­ple musi­cal gen­res and top­ics, and var­i­ous method­olog­i­cal approach­es. The chap­ters address myr­i­ad top­ics such as nation­al­i­ty, eth­nic­i­ty, iden­ti­ty, gen­der, migra­tion and dias­po­ra.

The end of genre: cura­tions and exper­i­ments in inten­tion­al dis­cours­es
BuchcoverThis book explores ear­ly new crit­i­cal debates about inten­tion, trac­ing how and why inten­tion was dis­missed across much human­i­ties schol­ar­ship, and how it can be revis­it­ed and made rel­e­vant as a key for­ma­tive, eval­u­a­tive, and eth­i­cal con­cept. The author argues that the aca­d­e­m­ic dis­in­ter­est in inten­tion occurred simul­ta­ne­ous­ly as genre crit­i­cism and lat­er the rhetor­i­cal inter­est in genre came into its own. Genre became a way to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly elide and nat­u­ral­ize inten­tion. The book elab­o­rates on the ped­a­gog­i­cal, eth­i­cal, and empir­i­cal con­se­quences nat­u­ral­iz­ing inten­tion through genre has had for rhetor­i­cal stud­ies and it offers a new term, “cura­tions” to iden­ti­fy dis­cur­sive forms, actions, and inten­tions work­ing simul­ta­ne­ous­ly. Final­ly, he also exam­ines the gap between the human­i­ties and STEM fields and shows spe­cif­ic ways sci­en­tists and engi­neers have called for the human­i­ties to become more invest­ed in inten­tion as both a crit­i­cal and an oper­a­tional con­cept. This book will be of inter­est to stu­dents and schol­ars of dis­course stud­ies and crit­i­cal dis­course analy­sis, rhetoric and pro­fes­sion­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion, includ­ing those in fields such as med­i­cine, engi­neer­ing, STS and busi­ness stud­ies.
