Public Contest and the Pragmatics of Performance

(p.137) Chapter 7 Public Contest and the Pragmatics of Performance
Hearing Allah's Call

Cornell University Press

Chapter Eight analyses preaching as medium for change, viewing it from the perspective of an activist group that contributes to public contest by circulating ideas through the Province’s media. The group is frustrated by the pragmatic tendencies of preachers who realise their careers depend on avoidance of contest. The Chapter highlights the distinctions between oral preaching and print publication as modes for the conduct of public contest.
