Ordinary social occasions, sandcastles, and structural reproduction: a sociology of everybody's social life
If we look rigorously and systematically, we can see how ordinary people observably strive to reproduce normal social order and sensible social meaning, every day, over and over again. Examination of this "everyday life process" approaches social life as a distinct form of life, the understanding of which begins with discovery of its fundamental principles of organization, those features that characterize it as a distinct form, and those structural elements and dynamics that enable it to sustain its life. These principles are empirically instantiated in naturally occurring, live social occasions. Using a newly developed hybrid method of interviewing recent ingenuous participants in ordinary occasions to derive detailed descriptions of what they had authentically observed to have been said and done, Boughey develops categories of participant-defined activity modes of identifications.
