Description : The study of everyday life is fundamental to our understanding of modern society. This agenda-setting book provides a coherent, interdisciplinary way to engage with everyday activities and environments. Arguing for an innovative, ethnographic approach, it uses detailed examples, based in real world and digital research, to bring its theories to life. The book focuses on the sensory, embodied, mobile and mediated elements of practice and place as a route to understanding wider issues. By doing so, it convincingly outlines a robust theoretical and methodological approach to understanding contemporary everyday life and activism. A fresh, timely book, this is an excellent resource for students and researchers of everyday life, activism and sustainability across the social sciences.

Description : The Senses in Self, Society, and Culture is the definitive guide to the sociological and anthropological study of the senses. Vannini, Waskul, and Gottschalk provide a comprehensive map of the social and cultural significance of the senses that is woven in a thorough analytical review of classical, recent, and emerging scholarship and grounded in original empirical data that deepens the review and analysis. By bridging cultural/qualitative sociology and cultural/humanistic anthropology, The Senses in Self, Society, and Culture explicitly blurs boundaries that are particularly weak in this field due to the ethnographic scope of much research. Serving both the sociological and anthropological constituencies at once means bridging ethnographic traditions, cultural foci, and socioecological approaches to embodiment and sensuousness. The Senses in Self,Society, and Culture is intended to be a milestone in the social sciences’ somatic turn.

This book examines: -How new theoretical and methodological engagements are developing and emerging in research practice; -the impact new approaches are having on the types of knowledge visual research produces and critiques; -the ways visual research intersects with new media; -and the implications for social and cultural research, scholarship and intervention.

Description : The essays in this volume present deeply contextualized cases of sensory experience.They link senses to each other and to event, sentiment, emplacement, identity, and the ongoing shaping of social life. In doing so, they make a strong joint case for the importance of taking the senses seriously, not in isolation but as integral elements of culture and interaction.

Description : Explores how the micro-histories of dances and sign languages fit into the macro-history of the human race. Drid Williams brings together four major scholars in the field: Sylvia Glasser, Douglas Baynton, Brenda Farnell and Theresa Buckland, as they consider the problems that arise when searching for the origins of sign languages and dances. The essays written by each of these scholars are found in the first section of the book. Glasser talks about the political nature of dancing in South Africa. Baynton summarizes significant changes in American attitudes toward deaf-signing during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Farnell addresses two issues: different ways of thinking about time/space and gesture and the general notion of embodiment among the Assiniboine (Nakota) people. Buckland discusses the origins of English forms of traditional dancing and the resources available for its study. Following is a section concerning the confusions that exist regarding ideas of evolution, subjectivity and objectivity, progress, primitivity, and universality as they pertain to the study of dance and sign languages. The final section provides intellectual resources on ancient dances, movement literacy and evidence, and the basic structures of argument. The chapters are accompanied by biographical notes, summary exercises and study questions. A comprehensive supplement for courses providing anthropological perspectives on the study of sign languages and dances, this is an ideal resource for audiences interested in sociocultural anthropology, performance studies, linguistics, ethnomusicology and ethnology.

Description : These interpretative studies are a beginning - a questioning that gathers practitioners, students, teachers, scholars, and citizens into persistent thinking and conversation around complex contemporary issues. First, Do No Harm shows how health care professionals, with the best intentions of providing excellent, holistic health care, can nonetheless perpetuate violence against vulnerable patients. These essays investigate the need to rethink contemporary healthcare practices in ways that can bring the art and science of medicine back into sorely needed balance. These ground-breaking studies by noted scholars question commonly held assumptions in contemporary healthcare that underlie oppressive power dynamics and even violence for patients and their families. The contributors discuss such topics as women and violence, life-support technologies, and healthcare professionals' own experiences as patients. First, Do No Harm opens the discourse for reaching new understandings, from reassessing the meaning of quality of life to questioning the appropriateness of the very language used by healthcare professionals. It will be welcomed by healthcare workers and by scholars in nursing, medi

Description : The practice of morality and the formation of identity among an indigenous Latin American culture are framed in a pioneering ethnography of sight that attempts to reverse the trend of anthropological fieldwork and theory overshadowing one another. In this vital and richly detailed work, methodology and theory are treated as complementary partners as the author explores the dynamic Mayan customs of the Q'eqchi' people living in the cultural crossroads of Livingston, Guatemala. Here, Q'eqchi', Ladino, and Garifuna (Caribbean-coast Afro-Indians) societies interact among themselves and with others ranging from government officials to capitalists to contemporary tourists. The fieldwork explores the politics of sight and incorporates a video camera operated by multiple people--the author and the Q'eqchi' people themselves--to watch unobtrusively the traditions, rituals, and everyday actions that exemplify the long-standing moral concepts guiding the Q'eqchi' in their relationships and tribulations. Sharing the camera lens, as well as the lens of ethnographic authority, allows the author to slip into the world of the Q'eqchi' and capture their moral, social, political, economic, and spiritual constructs shaped by history, ancestry, external forces, and time itself. A comprehensive history of the Q'eqchi' illustrates how these former plantation laborers migrated to lands far from their Mayan ancestral homes to co-exist as one of several competing cultures, and what impact this had on maintaining continuity in their identities, moral codes of conduct, and perception of the changing outside world. With the innovative use of visual methods and theories, the author's reflexive, sensory-oriented ethnographic approach makes this a study that itself becomes a reflection of the complex set of social structures embodied in its subject.
