Paul Manning – Semiotics of Drink and Drinking

Drink, as an embodied semiotic and material form, mediates social life 마사무네의 리벤지. This book examines the fundamental nature of drink through a series of modular but connected ethnographic discussions. It looks at the way the materiality of a specific drink (coffee, wine, water, beer) serves as the semiotic medium for a genre of sociability in a specific time and place 유진표 천년지기 다운로드.

As an explicitly comparative semiotic study, the book uses familiar and unfamiliar case studies to show how drinks with similar material properties are semiotically organized into very different drinking practices, including ethnographic examples as diverse as the relation of coffee to talk (in ordering at Starbucks) 다운로드. Further chapters look at the dryness of gin in relation to the modern cocktail party and the embedding of beer brands in the ethnographic imagination of the nation 다운로드. Rather than treat drinks as mere propos in the exclusively human drama of the social, the book promotes them to actors on the stage.

Paul Manning – Materiality and Cosmology: Old Georgian Churches as Sacred, Sublime, and Secular Objects

Discourses about Georgian churches have since the nineteenth century treated the material quality of ‘ancientness’ associated with existing churches as being among their essential defining properties 다운로드. This paper first explores how different material qualisigns of churches, including oldness and qualisigns attendant on oldness, allow churches to be interpreted as secular objects, by ordering them with theatres (as expressive of ‘civilization’), the natural landscape (expressive of an aesthetics of the sublime) or other monuments, including texts (expressive of culture) 워킹데드 시즌9 9화 다운로드. One result of such discourses is that the contemporary Orthodox Church finds it difficult to have ‘new’ churches accepted as being churches at all 다운로드. These nineteenth-century discourses thus provide a context for the complex and contested reception of old and new Orthodox churches, as well as other religious structures, mountain shrines, having a more ambiguous relation with Orthodoxy 맵피 어둠.

Paul Manning and Ann Uplisashvili – “Our Beer”: Ethnographic Brands in Postsocialist Georgia

네이버 움짤

Although Georgia is known for its wines, industrial production of beer far outstrips industrial wine production for local markets: wine consumption occurs in ritual contexts in which new wine, typically purchased from peasant producers, is preferred; bottled, aged wines are primarily for exports labview 2013. Beer, therefore, is a key area in which industrial production for indigenous consumers has been elaborated. Such goods are packaged and presented as being both ecologically “pure” and following “traditional” methods, often referencing “ethnographic” materials about traditional life in brand images, even as they proclaim their reliance on Western technologies 응급남녀 14회 다운로드.
