A Rhetoric of Controversy.
Phillips, Kendall R.
Western Journal of Communication, v63 n4 p488-510 Fall 1999
Contributes to scholarship advancing the understanding of human communication by exploring the concept of controversy within a theoretical framework which does not presume the existence of a public sphere. Suggests an alternative perspective based on the intersection of moments of opportunity and specific sites of discourse. Applies this perspective to controversy surrounding the African Burial Ground in New York City. (SR)
