About the Author
Celine Carayon is a Professor at Salisbury University
"Celine Carayon shed valuable new light on an old subject: cultural exchange between Amerindians and Europeans in the age of early modern empire. Drawing from a rich array of sources, she uncovers heretofore unexplored forms of nonverbal communication and shows how decisively Indigenous peoples shaped these interactions. Powerfully argued, Eloquence Embodied calls o mus to rethink the history of language in colonial contexts."
