  • Sociology is a curious discipline. Its objects of attention are both the taken-for-granted and the exceptional. It looks at the everyday experience and the extraordinary events as problematic; suffused with simultaneous and conflicting yet flourishing negotiations. Moved by this insight Peter Berger opened up his famed book with this poignant statement: “It can be said that the first wisdom of sociology is this: things are not what they seem…. Social reality turns out to have many layers of meaning. The discovery of each new layer changes the perception of the whole.

  • Power has been defined in a variety of different ways by sociologists and political scientists so it behooves us to review those definitions before launching into an exploration of the imagery of power. The simplest definition of power is an ability to get others to do something that they would not otherwise have done. This is sometimes referred to as power as “capabilities” or “potential” power and is measured in terms of the attributes of the social actor that allegedly possesses it. An individual is powerful if she is rich, well-educated, a member of a social elite, etc.

  • While interacting socially, people are aware of and react to the feedback that they receive by the other people in an environment. They adjust their body posture, their facial expressions, and their general presentation. These adjustments are made not to be artificial but to convey appropriate social information for the situation.

  • Hence, in order for us to understand not just this encounter but also Villa-Lobos’s stay in Paris, we need to explore carefully the sociohistorical configuration in which both occurred. My intention, though, is not to trace a global ‘context’ in which these figures were ‘immersed.’ Such an approach would impoverish the analytic possibilities, since as Bensa argues (1998:46), “context is immanent to practices and makes up part of them.

  • Member States have anchored and reaffirmed their commitment to gender equality in several normative frameworks. 1 Yet, too many women have not been able to benefit from progress made in meeting the MDGs. Their rights are often not respected and they are left voiceless, excluded from social protection, access to services and economic opportunities. Women and girls continue to face gender-based discrimination and violence as internationally agreed commitments on women’s rights and the empowerment of women are not met in many countries.

  • There is a whole genre of “celebrity” biography that focuses on the rich and famous, the influential, or the notorious, and within this category an entire sub-genre devoted to movie-stars and other Hol- lywood types. They can range from the sleazy and sensational to the more complex, hefty literary film studies, or historical biography— the latter varieties seeking to situate the biographical subjects in the social, cultural, or literary context of the times in which they lived, without sparing the gossip.

  • Economics - to the great dismay of economists - is merely a branch of psychology. It deals with individual behaviour and with mass behaviour. Many of its practitioners sought to disguise its nature as a social science by applying complex mathematics where common sense and direct experimentation would have yielded far better results. The outcome has been an embarrassing divorce between economic theory and its subjects. The economic actor is assumed to be constantly engaged in the rational pursuit of self interest. This is not a realistic model - merely a useful approximation.

  • Drawing from Goffman’s performance theory, there are three fundamental components to the passage of social information between individuals. When information is to be conveyed explicitly, it is given, but these messages are also impacted by the subtle, and perhaps unconscious messages that are given off by the actors, as well as the intention that the observer might infer (Goffman 1956: 2).

  • The ceremonial dance of the Alaskan Eskimo is a rhythmic pantomime--the story in gesture and song of the lives of the various Arctic animals on which they subsist and from whom they believe their ancient clans are sprung. The dances vary in complexity from the ordinary social dance, in which all share promiscuously and in which individual action is subordinated to rhythm, to the pantomime totem dances performed by especially trained actors who hold their positions from year to year according to artistic merit.
