Laughter Out of Place: Race, Class, Violence, and Sexuality in a Rio Shantytown

By: Goldstein, Donna M.

Price: $2.99

Publisher: Berkeley, University of California Press: 2003-11-27

Seller ID: 032285

ISBN: 0520235975

Condition: Very Good


light edge wear; Donna M. Goldstein challenges much of what we think we know about the 'culture of poverty'. Drawing on more than a decade of experience in Brazil, Goldstein provides an intimate portrait of everyday life among the women of the favelas, or urban shantytowns. These women have created absurdist and black-humor storytelling practices in the face of trauma and tragedy. Goldstein helps us to understand that such joking and laughter is part of an emotional aesthetic that defines the sense of frustration and anomie endemic to the political and economic desperation of the shantytown.

spine creasing, edge wear; Margaret Mead accomplished this remarkable feat not once but several times, beginning with Coming of Age in Samoa. It details her historic journey to American Samoa, taken where she was just twenty-three, where she did her first fieldwork. Here, for the first time, she presented to the public the idea that the individual experience of developmental stages could be shaped by cultural demands and expectations. Adolescence, she wrote, might be more or less stormy, and sexual development more or less problematic in different cultures. The "civilized" world, ... View more info
