Overview

Organizing Silence is a thought-provoking look at how silence is embedded in our language, society, and institutions. It provides an overview of the varied philosophical approaches to understanding the role of silence and communication. One particular view of silence/communication, as grounded in political and patriarchal frameworks, is given special attention. The author questions not only how dominant groups silence marginalized members of society, but also how marginalized groups privilege and abandon each other.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the introduction, Clair communication, Purdue U. asserts that the title incorporates two distinct yet overlapping meanings: the ways in which the interests, issues, and identities of marginalized people are silenced, and how those silenced voices can be organized in ways to be heard. These are the themes explored in nine chapters on topics such as the use of framing devices to sequester organizational narratives; the bureaucratization, commodification, and privatization of sexual harassment through institutional discourse--a study of the "Big Ten" universities; and artful practices and the aesthetic perspective. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
