Social Interactionism
Another form of sociology described as micro-sociology. Small group interactions,
the kind of experiences that you would have in your everyday lives
Erving Goffman
The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life, 1959
“The perspective employed in the report is that of the theatrical
performance, the principles derives are dramaturgical ones. I shall consider
the way in which the individual in ordinary work situations presents himself
and his activity to others, the ways in which he guides and controls the
impressions they form of him, and the kinds of things he may and may not do
while sustaining his performance before them.” (Goffman, 1959: xi)
Concepts
Front stage:
o Where the performance takes place whenever an audience and
performers are both present
Backstage:
o Where whatever a pertinent to the performance but not allowed on
the front stage might appear. It is comfortable and relaxed because
the audience is absent.
Think about the idea of ‘civilized’ social interaction. What types of behaviors
are considered socially acceptable in ‘public’ and what do we reserve for
private moments?
How is this affected by culture?
Impression Management
The activity a social actor engages in to guard against the unexpected, such as
uninterested gestures, improper use of language, and breaches of social
etiquette.
How do actors consciously manage the impression they give others?
Keep a social distance
Maintain self-control, including control over facial expressions and tone of
one’s voice
Settings
A metaphor: the physical props and scenery that have to be present
