Reviews

In Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event Wortham and Reyes reassuringly and surefootedly lead the would-be student of social life to a sophisticated methodological place: being able to interpret an interaction as a moment of connected cultural practices, and being able to render the found artifacts of culture - print, digital, and otherwise - social sites that discursively interact. Drawing richly on their own and others' empirical materials, it is an achievement bespeaking the characteristic lucidity and virtuosity of its authors.
Michael Silverstein, University of Chicago, USA

Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event provides a useful, clearly illustrated heuristic for anyone interested in seeing how social meaning emerges and circulates in and across interactions.
Barbara Johnstone, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

Wortham and Reyes have developed a timely and much needed adjustment of discourse-analytical frameworks to the realities of transcontextual mobilities of texts, signs and meanings. Theoretically astute, technically sophisticated, yet written in an accessible way, this book must become a classic.
Jan Blommaert, Tilburg University, The Netherlands
