"Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event introduces a new approach to discourse analysis. In this innovative work, Wortham and Reyes argue that discourse analysts should look beyond fixed speech events and consider the development of discourses over time. Drawing on theories and methods from linguistic anthropology and related fields, this book is the first to present a systematic methodological approach to conducting discourse analysis of linked events, allowing researchers to understand not only individual events but also the patterns that emerge across them. Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech EventProvides a method for detailed examination of speech, writing and other communication Introduces students and researchers to the discourse analytic tools and techniques required to analyse the relationships between discourse events Offers explicit guidelines that direct the reader through different stages of discourse analytic research, including worked examples from conversation, magazines and social mediaIncorporates sample analyses from ethnographic, archival and new media data. This book is essential reading for advanced students and researchers working in the area of discourse analysis"--
Goya by Fred Licht( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and French and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of Goya, newly revised and updated, portrays Francisco Goya, the preeminent Spanish master of the age of revolution, as a pioneer of modern art and culture. Illustrated by outstanding color reproductions of Goya's most important paintings and prints, the text focuses on the genres in which Goya successively worked, while pointing to the many ways his work helped to shape the modern spirit." "It is one of the most intriguing facets of great artists that each century often even each generation - sees different aspects, different ideals, and different values in the work of great masters without in any way changing the essential identity of the artist himself. Where most serious literature on Goya follows the methods and standards of art history - archival documentation, iconographic puzzles, technical matters, and so on - the present book adopts a different approach, based more on the interpretation of Goya's work in the light of contemporary experience and needs."--BOOK JACKET

William Congdon by Peter Selz( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Grosvenor Congdon was born in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1912. From the end of the 1940s, for more than a decade he was one of the most successful painters formed in the climate of the New York School, thanks to the original balance he struck between Abstract Expressionism and the European figurative tradition. Permanently in exile, an inexhaustible traveler, Congdon then - also as a consequence of his conversion to Catholicism - moved farther and farther away from the art world and market." "This volume is the result of the need for a thorough investigation of an artist who, thanks to renewed critical interest, has been recognized as one of the great masters of the second half of the twentieth century. The book reveals the seductive complexity of Congdon's journey as well as the extraordinary quality of his works. Three scholars - two eminent American art historians, Peter Selz and Fred Licht, and Congdon's most attentive biographer, Rodolfo Balzarotti - have confronted Congdon's poetic universe, with its parabola of expression and crowded landscape of existence; what emerges is above all the sign of the immense richness of experience of the man and the artist, which The Foundation for Improving Understanding of the Arts has the task of safeguarding but which belongs by right to the history of our time."--Jacket
