Abstract
  • This paper explores the ways in which de Certeau's concepts of consumption and production inform rhetorical reception and invention. These notions are used to investigate the effects of the peacelines of Belfast, Northern Ireland. The peacelines are 50-foot tall concrete and barbed wire walls that separate Protestant and Catholic communities in Belfast. I argue that the peacelines are a representative place that provide grounds for the invention of rhetorical acts that develop and reinforce dialectically produced communal identities through stories of memory, ritual and territoriality.
