Peterson, Eric E.
Communication Quarterly, v35 n1 p39-47 Win 1987
Uses phenomenology to (1) examine how stories of pregnancy exemplify the strategic nature of family storytelling, and (2) explore the nature and function of storytelling as a cultural strategy for the generation and reproduction of small-group cultures, and (3) reveal the way in which stories of pregnancy organize communication and constitute "the family" as a small-group culture.
