Rhetoric of the Protestant Sermon in America

Pulpit Discourse at the Turn of the Millennium

Rhetoric of the Protestant Sermon in America

In Rhetoric of the Protestant Sermon in America: Pulpit Discourse at the Turn of the Millennium, ten scholars analyze notable sermons from the fifty-year span between 1965 and 2015, during which the Protestant sermon has undergone significant change in the United States. Contributors examine how this turbulent time period witnessed a variety of important shifts in the arguments, evidences, and rhetorical strategies employed by contemporary preachers. Because religious practice is inextricably tangled in the culture, politics, and economy of its historical situation, the public expression of a faith is certain to move with the times. In their treatment of race, sex, gender, class, and citizenship, sermons apply ancient texts to current events and controversies, often to revealing effect. This collection, thoughtfully edited by Eric C. Miller and Jonathan J. Edwards, demonstrates how the genre of the Protestant sermon has evolved—or resisted evolution—across the years. Scholars of religion, rhetoric, communication, sociology, and cultural studies will find this book particularly useful.

Queerness in Play

Queerness in Play

Queerness in Play examines the many ways queerness of all kinds—from queer as ‘LGBT’ to other, less well-covered aspects of the queer spectrum—intersects with games and the social contexts of play. The current unprecedented visibility of queer creators and content comes at a high tide of resistance to the inclusion of those outside a long-imagined cisgender, heterosexual, white male norm. By critically engaging the ways games—as a culture, an industry, and a medium—help reproduce limiting binary formations of gender and sexuality, Queerness in Play contributes to the growing body of scholarship promoting more inclusive understandings of identity, sexuality, and games.

The 2016 US Presidential Election and the LGBTQ Community

The 2016 US Presidential Election and the LGBTQ Community

In this volume, researchers explore the effects of the 2016 US Presidential Election on the LGBTQ community from a wide variety of disciplines including communication, gender studies, nursing, political science, public health, psychology, cultural analysis, and social work. The research in this volume shows that the election had negative effects on the personal well-being, relationships, and families of LGBTQ people. The research also explains ways in which members of the LGBTQ community reacted to the election with hope, resilience, and positive relational outcomes. Moving topically from a discussion of the election and the LGBTQ community at the system level, the contributors move on to assess the effect of the election at both family level and the individual level as well. Representing qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodological approaches, this interdisciplinary volume will appeal to students and researchers interested in the 2016 US election, and those interested in the impact of politics on marginalized communities more broadly. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of GLBT Family Studies.

The Oxford Handbook of Methods for Public Scholarship

The Oxford Handbook of Methods for Public Scholarship

The Oxford Handbook of Methods for Public Scholarship presents the first comprehensive overview of research methods and practices for engaging in public scholarship. Public scholarship, which has been on the rise over the past 25 years, produces knowledge that is available outside of the academy, is useful to relevant stakeholders, and addresses publicly identified needs. By involving stakeholders in the entire process, and making the findings accessible, public scholars contribute to a crucial democratization of research. The Oxford Handbook of Methods for Public Scholarship features a wealth of highly respected interdisciplinary contributors, as well as emerging scholars, and chapters include robust examples from real world research in varied fields and cultures. The volume features ample discussion of working with non-academic stakeholders, coverage of traditional and emergent methods including those that draw from the arts, the internet, social media, and digital technologies, and coverage of key issues such as writing, publicity, and funding.

Queer Communication Pedagogy

Queer Communication Pedagogy

This book addresses queer issues and current events from a communication perspective to articulate a queer communication pedagogy. Through putting communication pedagogy and queer studies into dialogue, the book investigates how queer theory and critical communication pedagogy intersect in pedagogical spaces. The chapters identify institutional and educational barriers, oppressions, and issues pertaining to queer lives in the context of higher education. Using a variety of critical methodological approaches (including dialogic methods, autoethnography, performative writing, and visual methods), each chapter theorizes a queer communication pedagogy, and offers a path toward and innovative ideas about materializing queer communication pedagogy as a disciplinary endeavor. This book will be of interest to scholars, graduate students, and upper-level undergraduate students in Communication Studies, Critical Communication Pedagogy, Intercultural Communication, Higher Education, Public Pedagogy, and Queer Studies, and Critical/Cultural Studies.
