Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Women, particularly women whose ancestors had converted from Judaism to Christianity (known as conversas), were frequent defendants before the Inquisition. But women were also prominent in making accusations before the Holy Office. In fact, women did much to further the work of Spanish inquisitors, both as accusers and as witnesses. I contend that women were central to the work of the Inquisition. In some cases this participation was coerced by religious authorities, but in other instances women came forward of their own volition. Women in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain could use Inquisition courts to fight out family grievances, settle scores with neighbors, or address their own anxieties about social, religious, or political change. An analysis of trials for Judaizing before 1650 demonstrates the ways in which women participated — willingly and unwillingly — with religious authorities in the work of the Inquisition, and the influence that some women gained as a result.

"A Conversation Analytic Examination of Alignment and Disalignment in Political News Interviews; Embedding Presuppositions and Refuting Accusations via Questions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 95th Annual Convention, Chicago Hilton & Towers, Chicago, IL, Nov 11, 2009 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p367941_index.html>

Abstract: This paper presents findings of a conversation analytic study of alignment and disalignment displayed in interviewers’ turns in political news interviews. Drawing on data from broadcast news interviews at the UN Headquarters between journalists and Ambassadors involved in the Israel-Palestine conflict, I expand on existing research to study the importance of the linguistic form of interviewer’ turns and the structure of sequences in performing actions like displaying stance, and showing alignment and disalignment with interviewees.

3. Vollman, Brenda K.. "Narrative Structure: Exploring Identity and Behavior of Catholic Priests Accused of Sexual Abuse of Minors." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, San Francisco Marriott, San Francisco, California, Nov 17, 2010 <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p432119_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Using qualitative survey responses, clinical file narratives and excerpts from interviews, this paper explores the ways in which priests, accused of the sexual abuse of minors in the United States, construct, present and manage identity through the use of narratives. Whether a priest admits to or denies allegations of abuse, his life story becomes intertwined with that of the victim. How can we use the structure (rather than content alone) of these sexual narratives to better understand the ways in which priests come to an understanding of their own identity and behavior?

Media Reports, Hostile Witnesses, and Accusations: Tactics of Incivility in Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 96th Annual Convention, Hilton San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, Nov 13, 2010 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p427525_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This paper investigates three tactics that contribute to incivility in Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings: "secondary incivility," wherein Senators introduce uncivil quotes and other material from media and other outside sources; "tertiary incivility," where Senators invite hostile witnesses who then attack nominees in their stead; and accusations of incivility, which serve to shift the focus of debates from the nominee to the process itself.

Abstract: Emile Zola's "J'Accuse…!" letter against anti-Semitist affairs stands as an innovative text of social criticism in the modern era. Sometimes Zola channeled prophetic images and at other times invoked sentiment, but he always grounded truth claims in vivid memory images. Prophets used the terminology of ultimate contingency to produce reform, preaching repentance from an eschatological order of time and space. Sentimentalists used the philosophy of human rights to reform the passions, using the unruly state of nature as the ever-threatening backdrop for moral improvement. But for the social critic of later modernity, increasingly secular and suspended by the wheels of capitalism, a new paradigm stressing memory came to substitute these older symbolic orders.

In this presentation, I will discuss how narrative paradigms help explain the processes of public memory. I argue that Zola attempted to alter the narrative framing of public memory through an epistemology of images. As a modern social critic, Zola rooted his appeal to action in vivid existential images of alienation and paralysis. Only by actively remembering the event in a certain way could his audience move beyond their individual depravity and restructure the future. Through an analysis of "J'Accuse…!", I argue that memory images provided a new epistemological basis for modern social criticism, and, as theorists of collective memory, we should be more attentive to these symbolic processes of memory narration.
