We have just published Will Gibson’s fascinating review of Dennis Waskul and Phillip Vannini’s book “Popular Culture as Everyday Life”. Gibson writes that “[T]his fascinating and highly engaging collection of essays is based on the deceptively simple premise that popular culture should be understood as the everyday practices of action that we engage in and encounter in our daily lives.” SSSI members can download the review by clicking the image below. To join SSSI and subscribe to Symbolic Interaction from $31 (£23) please click HERE.

New Book Review out: Christopher T. Connor on Vanessa R. Panfil’s “The Gang’s All Queer” #sssi

We have just published Christopher T. Connor’s excellent review of Vanessa R. Panfil’s book “The Gang’s All Queer”. Connor writes that “Panfil explores the identity work that participants engage in as they negotiate the boundaries of their race, masculinity, and gay identity. Thus, she achieves what many in this field mention but ultimately gloss over.” SSSI members can download the review by clicking the image below. To join SSSI and subscribe to Symbolic Interaction from $31 (£23) please click HERE.

Review of Alex Preda’s ‘Noise: Living and Trading in Electronic Finance’ by J. C. Jekat #sociology #sssi #economic-sociology

Over the past 40 years, there has been a profound revival of economic sociology. In recent years, interactionist research has shown a growing interest in this sociological field and produced a fascinating body of work including studies of sales and marketing by Robert Prus or the studies of auctions by Charles Smith or more recently by Christian Heath (reviewed in this journal in 2014). In recent years, there also has been an interactionist concern with financial markets as shown in Karin Knorr-Cetina’s research on scopic systems and synthetic situations and her (with Alex Preda) edited volume on ‘The Sociology of Financial Markets‘. Alex Preda’s book ‘Noise: Living and Trading in Electronic Finance’ falls in the context of these latter studies. Jacob Christian Jekat’s review of the book has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction. SSSI members can read the review by clicking on the image below. To join SSSI and subscribe to Symbolic Interaction from $31 (£23) please click HERE.
