📒I M Sorry For What I Ve Done ✍ M. Catherine Gruber
✏I m Sorry for What I ve Done Book Summary : This book examines 52 apologetic allocutions produced during federal sentencing hearings. The practice of inviting defendants to make a statement in their own behalf is a long-standing one and it is understood as offering defendants the opportunity to impress a judge or jury with their remorse, which could be a factor in the sentence that is imposed. Defendants raised the topics of the offense, mitigation, future behaviour and the sentence in different ways and this book explores the pros and cons associated with the different strategies that they used. Because there is no way of ascertaining exactly how effective (or ineffective) an individual allocution is, case law, sociolinguistic and historical resources, and judges' final remarks are used to develop hypotheses about defendants' communicative goals as well as what might constitute an ideal defendant stance from a judge's point of view. The corpus is unique because, unlike official transcripts, the transcripts used for this study include paralinguistic features such as hesitations, wavering voice, and crying-while-talking. Among its highlights, the book proposes that although a ritualized apology formula (e.g., "I'm sorry" or "I apologize") would appear to be a good fit for the context of allocution and even appears to be expected, the use of these formulas carries implications in this context that do not serve defendants' communicative goals. I argue that the application of Austin's (1962) performative-constative continuum reveals that offense-related utterances that fall closer to the constative end are more consistent with the discursive constraints on the speech event of allocution. Further, I propose that the ideologies associated with allocution, in particular the belief that allocution functions as a protection for defendants, obscures the ways in which the context constrains what defendants can say and how effectively they can say it.

The discovery of the brutal axe-murders of Andrew and Abby Borden under their own roof in Fall River, Massachusetts paralyzes the small community.

As the police search for clues, Emma comforts an increasingly distraught Lizzie whose memories flash in scattered fragments.

📒I Ve Done Nothing Wrong Today ✍ Alex Ingram
✏I ve Done Nothing Wrong Today Book Summary : PMDescription The work I make involves myself within domestic and suburban enviroments. My activities are in themselves responses to stimuli,both memories and props leed to potential activities that culminate as unusual undertakings. As interventions the unknown aspects of process and the work,with subsequent readings integrated on reflection are initiated by something I want to do or a situation I wish to realise. The animation of materials and manipulation of surroundings can produce unexpected outcomes which touch on aspects of ourselves and the world that we had never questioned before. The relationship I have with the work, my placement in the work, confirms my presence, proposes questions of recognition and acts as a document of a time of value.My fascination is in the space created by this process,the private moments I intend to share. I see myself as a matter artist showing the mechanics of my work through tactile interaction and the work as a reflective tool.
