After the Public Turn

Composition, Counterpublics, and the Citizen Bricoleur

Utah State University Press

 In After the Public Turn, author Frank Farmer argues that counterpublics and the people who make counterpublics—“citizen bricoleurs”—deserve a more prominent role in our scholarship and in our classrooms. Encouraging students to understand and consider resistant or oppositional discourse is a viable route toward mature participation as citizens in a democracy.

Peripheral Visions for Writing Centers

Utah State University Press

Peripheral Visions for Writing Centers aims to inspire a re-conception and re-envisioning of the boundaries of writing center work. Moving beyond the grand narrative of the writing center—that it is solely a comfortable, yet iconoclastic place where all students go to get one-to-one tutoring on their writing—McKinney shines light on other representations of writing center work.

Tradition in the Twenty-First Century

Locating the Role of the Past in the Present

Utah State University Press

 In Tradition in the Twenty-First Century, eight diverse contributors explore the role of tradition in contemporary folkloristics. For more than a century, folklorists have been interested in locating sources of tradition and accounting for the conceptual boundaries of tradition, but in the modern era, expanded means of communication, research, and travel, along with globalized cultural and economic interdependence, have complicated these pursuits. Tradition is thoroughly embedded in both modern life and at the center of folklore studies, and a modern understanding of tradition cannot be fully realized without a thoughtful consideration of the past’s role in shaping the present.

Revelation, Resistance, and Mormon Polygamy

The Introduction and Implementation of the Principle, 1830–1853

Utah State University Press

 In Revelation, Resistance, and Mormon Polygamy, historian Merina Smith explores the introduction of polygamy in Nauvoo, a development that unfolded amid scandal and resistance. Smith considers the ideological, historical, and even psychological elements of the process and captures the emotional and cultural detail of this exciting and volatile period in Mormon history. She illuminates the mystery of early adherents' acceptance of such a radical form of marriage in light of their dedication to the accepted monogamous marriage patterns of their day.

Stories of Our Lives

Memory, History, Narrative

Utah State University Press

 The social importance of personal narratives, family saga, and communal legends are well-established in ethnographic and folkloristic literature, but their value for individual self-knowledge is less often demonstrated. Both a memoir and a research project, Stories of Our Lives considers the stories from Frank de Caro’s personal life, as well as the stories he has collected in his years of field research as he explores how the stories we tell, listen to, and learn play an integral role in constructing our temporal selves.
