Course Description:
Arguably, signs, symbols and meanings have always been the province of sociologists but not always their primary concern. Many believe we have finally taken or are in the midst of taking a “cultural turn” in contemporary sociology. Problems of meaning, discourse, aesthetics, value, textuality, narrativity, and performativity, topics traditionally within the purview of humanists, have come to the fore as sociologists increasingly emphasize the role of meanings, symbols, cultural frames and cognitive schema in their theorization of social processes and institutions.
This course will focus on the sociology of performance and its contribution to the cultural sociological perspective. We will start with classical accounts on performativity from Austin and Goffman and proceed to contemporary theorists and issues, for example Judith Butler and the performance of Gender or Jeffrey Alexander's account on social performances in politics. The aim of this course is to provide knowledge about performances and performativity in different spheres of social life as well as to provide analytical tools for the empirical analysis of different social phenomena.
