Summary note
Symbolic interactionism, resolutely empirical in practice, shares theoretical concerns with cultural studies and humanistic discourse. Recognizing that the humanities have engaged many of the important intellectual currents of the last twenty-five years in ways that sociology has not, the contributors to this volume fully acknowledge that the boundary between the social sciences and the humanities has begun to dissolve. This volume explores that border area.
Notes
Papers originally prepared for the 1988 Stone Symposium sponsored by the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction.
