MCA provides an orientation, set of questions, and identification of discrete discourse devices to aid understanding of the moral work being accomplished by speakers’ and writers’ as they select category terms and tie them to descriptions.
A state of the art collection which is essential reading for anyone interested in social identity and social order.
Membership categories are central to the organization of culture. They set up inferential relations between classes of people, they implicate actions and thoughts, and they mark moral statuses. Membership categorization analysis develops the tradition of work started by Harvey Sacks and shows that the issues he explored are still urgent and significant. In this volume an A-list of contributors provide state of the art analyses that illustrate the ongoing vitality of membership categorization analysis. It is essential reading for anyone interested in this topic.
Richard Fitzgerald and William Housley are to be congratulated for further developing the field.
The authors provide an applied, multi-modal, and engaging demonstration of how MCA is used in contemporary research. Exercises and cases provided in each chapter are especially useful.
