Abstract

Rhythm is a form of discourse central to social organization. This essay weaves together a variety of anecdotes, ethnographic analyses, labor histories, and critical theories around the central theme of rhythm in order to hear the relationships between organization, epistemology, consciousness, and body without positing one of these elements as foundational. This approach expands and complicates the understanding of what constitutes “organization” and calls for a greater accounting in communication theory of the role of physiological structures in human social life.
