1. DeLaurier, Mark. and Thomas, Ryan. "Speaking of Materiality: Re-centering the Material World in Critical Communication Scholarship" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 96th Annual Convention, Hilton San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p424121_index.html>

Abstract: The authors argue that contemporary critical scholarship emphasizes the symbolic function of language at the cost of material considerations. We argue that symbolic constructions are not formed in a vacuum but exist as a result of material conditions and have material consequences – both the root and consequence of symbolic construction. We then articulate how the field can better address the material-symbolic tension with particular consideration given to the environment and class.

Abstract: In this article, we highlight the materiality of money as a conduit to understanding how actors purposefully enunciate particular affordances of material objects. Rather than explore how materiality constrains meaning-making processes, the foremost contribution of our argument is a preliminary theorization of how actors are able to put such constraints to use in specific object-settings, and the limitations of such attempts at purposeful enunciation. We elaborate this theory of purposeful enunciation by integrating recent work on materiality and cognition to conceptualize material affordances of perceptibility and legibility as dual-process models of attention and sense-making. We then couple the framework with novel empirical data of people paying with large amounts of small cash and coins as a form of protest. We first put forth an interpretative exploration of ideal-typical cases, leading to propositions that we then test with computational linguistic and standard quantitative methods. Using public reception as a measure of the outcome of attempts at purposeful enunciation, we find that public reception is more likely to be positive when money typically demands deliberate attention in the ideal-typical object-setting. However, the effect of money’s legibility in the object-setting depends on the level of perceptibility – where high legibility is more likely to generate positive public reception when money already requires deliberate attention. We conclude by considering the implications of materiality, and specifically our concept of purposeful enunciation, for broader projects within cultural sociology, economic sociology, and political sociology.

Abstract: Increasingly we are asked to conceptualize our body-selves from the inside out and in relation to inhuman others. Centrally, the premise of the microbiome is that it exists—as material and materializing—yet its existence is beyond our bodily perception. We learn instead to cultivate such agentive microbes (central to contemporary health claims) in the transductive effects of emergent research’s movement from academic journals to public media; its claims transformed from promissory to tangible. In this talk I attend to how such claims render the gendered body sensible as such via maternal-fetal-child microbial and material relations. Now the maternal body not only nourishes the growing fetus, its microbiome “seeds” the child’s life course development through intergenerational entanglements. And, in the process, vaginal birth and breastfeeding are transformed from cultural practices to microbiopolitical ones that constitute a kind of matrilineal inheritance. Here, I read across an archive of maternal microbiome materialization to query the sensibility of such insensible microbial agents; how are microbes enrolled to establish intergenerational futures and how do we come to perceive such agentive force as sensible? That is, when and how does this inhuman insensibility come to materialize in a set of practices for pregnant people? Drawing on a feminist materialisms lens to analyze lab-based research, popular science, and pregnancy narratives about the gendered microbiome, I suggest that the "ethics of apprehension" involved offer us praxis through which to engage the politics and possibilities of such charged and insensible relations.

4. Matsumoto, Yumi. "“Material Moments”: The Roles of Materials in Multilingual Writing Classroom Ecology" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAAL Annual Conference, Sheraton Grand Chicago, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-11-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1325450_index.html>
Publication Type: Colloquium Paper
Abstract: This qualitative study examines moments in the multilingual writing classroom when materials become “prominent” in whole-class interactions by using concepts of “adaptation” and “improvisation” from complexity theory (Larsen-Freeman & Cameron). The findings suggest how L2 teachers and students can attend to material affordances and adapt such ecological resources for teaching/learning.
