Story seeds and the inchoate.

Carrithers, Michael. (2009) 'Story seeds and the inchoate.', in Culture, rhetoric and the vicissitudes of life. Oxford: Berghahn, pp. 34-52. Studies in rhetoric and culture. (2).

Abstract

Inspired by the Rhetoric Culture Project, this volume focuses on the use of imagery, narrative, and cultural schemes to deal with predicatments that arise during the course of life. The contributors explore how people muster their resources to understand and deal with emergencies such as illness, displacement, or genocide. In dealing with such circumstances, people can develop new rhetorical forms and, in the process, establish new cultural resources for succeeding generations. Several of the contributions show how rhetorical cultural forms can themselves create emergencies. The contributors bring expertise from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology and communications studies, underlining the volume’s wider relevance as a reflection on the human condition.
