Disorderly Discourse by Charles L. Briggs
Book DescriptionConflict plays a crucial role in social interactions, and representations of conflict are an important aspect of language. Stories and narratives involving everything from war to playground disputes generate, sustain, mediate, and represent conflict at all levels of social organization. Still, despite the vast amount of research on conflict and narrative in a number of disciplines, no one has yet examined how these play off of each other; in fact, most studies treat narrative merely as a source of information about conflict rather then as a part of conflict's process. The contributors to this collection argue that language consists of socially and politically situated practices that are differentially distributed on the basis of gender, class, race, ethnicity, and other categories. Each of them, writing from the perspective of their own disciplines, challenges previous assumptions about narrative and social conflict as they interpret a range of disputes that emerge in a variety of settings. Taken in total, these essays substantially further our theoretical and methodological understanding of narrative and conflict and how they intersect.

Voices of Modernity, Hardback (July 2003)
This 2003 book discusses how new ways of thinking about language have uncovered previously 'legitimated' linguistic and social inequalities.
Disorderly Discourse, Paperback (August 1996)
This volume contains eight essays that are at the intesection of two important areas within linguistics: conversational analysis, and the use of narrative in the creation, mediation, and resolution of conflict. The contributors explore these issues in a variety of cultures and languages.
Learning How to Ask, Paperback (July 1986)» View all books by Charles L. Briggs
Interviews play a crucial role in social scientific research. But, as Charles Briggs argues in this work, received interviewing techniques rest on fundamental misapprehensions about the nature both of the interview as a communicative event, and of the nature of the data that it produces.
