New Book Review on Early View – Christopher T. Conner on J. Sumerau’s social fiction ‘Cigarettes & Wine’ #sssi #sociology

We have just published Christopher T. Conner’s review of J. Sumerau’s ‘Cigarettes & Wine’. J. who also is the editor of the SSSI music Blog has published ‘Cigarettes & Wine’ as a piece of social fiction that “blurs the lines between ethnography, autoethnographyand fiction, creating a new way of presenting ethnographic accounts.” (Conner 2017, p.1). Christopher T. Conner who has written numerous excellent book reviews for our journal, recommends Sumerau’s book as “an interesting pedagogical tool for an introductory course in sociology, or perhaps a topical course on gender and sexuality. It is a text that is accessible, entertaining, evocative, and can serve to unpack larger sociological concepts in class discussions.

New Book Review out: R. Wade Kenny on R. Perinbanayagam’s ‘The Rhetoric of Emotions’ #sssi #sociology #emotion

Emotions have been of central concern to discussion in Symbolic Interaction for decades. With his most recent book “The Rhetoric of Emotions” Robert Perinbanayagam has continued interactionist research in this area. Robert Wade Kenny has produced a fascinating review of the book that has just been published on Early View of our journal. He concludes his review by stating that, “I am in fact enthusiastic about this fascinating work, and I hope that others will not only read it, but also explore more deeply the enchantments within the grand interhuman caverns where Perinbanayagam, in this and many other volumes, has scattered the light of his imagination.” Members of SSSI can download Professor Kenny’s review of “The Rhetoric of Emotions” by clicking the image below.
