  1. The Value of Narrativity in the Representation of Reality.Hayden White - 1980 - Critical Inquiry 7 (1):5-27.
    To raise the question of the nature of narrative is to invite reflection on the very nature of culture and, possibly, even on the nature of humanity itself. So natural is the impulse to narrate, so inevitable is the form of narrative for any report of the way things really happened, that narrativity could appear problematical only in a culture in which it was absent—absent or, as in some domains of Western intellectual and artistic culture, programmatically refused. As a panglobal (...)

  • Sharing Values to Safeguard the Future: British Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration as Epideictic Rhetoric.John E. Richardson - 2018 - Discourse and Communication 12 (2):171-191.
    This article explores the rhetoric, and mass mediation, of the national Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration ceremony, as broadcast on British television. I argue that the televised national ceremonies should be approached as an example of multi-genre epideictic rhetoric, working up meanings through a hybrid combination of genres, author/animators and modes. Epideictic rhetoric has often been depreciated as simply ceremonial ‘praise or blame’ speeches. However, given that the topics of praise/blame assume the existence of social norms, epideictic also acts to presuppose (...)

  • Critique, the Discourse–Historical Approach, and the Frankfurt School.Bernhard Forchtner - 2011 - Critical Discourse Studies 8 (1):1-14.
    Critical discourse analysis stands on the shoulder of giants – different giants – in order to answer how its critique, its ethico-moral stance, is theoretically grounded and justified. Concerning this question, this article explores the role of the Frankfurt School in the discourse–historical approach. Although references to the Frankfurt School can regularly be found in the DHA's canon, I argue that an even more comprehensive discussion would help in combating accusations of the DHA being unprincipled and politically biased, and further (...)

  • Towards a Revised Theory of Collective Learning Processes: Argumentation, Narrative and the Making of the Social Bond.Klaus Eder, Marcos Engelken Jorge & Bernhard Forchtner - 2020 - European Journal of Social Theory 23 (2):200-218.
    Societies change; and sociology has, since its inception, described and evaluated these changes. This article proposes a revised theory of collective learning processes, a conceptual framework which addresses ways in which people make sense of and cope with change. Drawing on Habermas’ classic proposal, but shifting the focus from argumentation towards storytelling, it explains how certain articulations allow for collective learning processes, while others block learning processes. More specifically, the article points to narrative genres which organize feelings and shape the (...)

  • On the Social Construction of Moral Universals: The `Holocaust' From War Crime to Trauma Drama.Jeffrey C. Alexander - 2002 - European Journal of Social Theory 5 (1):5-85.
    The following is simultaneously an essay in sociological theory, in cultural sociology, and in the empirical reconstruction of postwar Western history. Per theory, it introduces and specifies a model of cultural trauma - a model that combines a strong cultural program with concern for institutional and power effects - and applies it to large-scale collectivities over extended periods of time. Per cultural sociology, the essay demonstrates that even the most calamitous and biological of social facts - the prototypical evil of (...)
