All authors publishing in Symbolic Interaction are encouraged to produce and submit a video abstract with their paper. From experience we know that video-abstracts have a positive influence on readers and would-be readers.
Tim J. Curry and Kiernan O. Gordon’s article “Muir, Roosevelt, and Yosemite National Park as an Emergent Sacred Symbol: An Interaction Ritual Analysis of a Camping Trip” has an associated video-abstract that arouses people’s curiosity for their article. The article discusses the meeting between the preservationist John Muir and President Roosevelt using Randall Collins’ concept of interaction ritual chains.
