Introduction to Special Issue on ‘Blumerian Symbolic Interactionism’ #sssi #sociology cc @sociologylens

Just over 50 years ago, in 1969 Herbert Blumer published his book “Symbolic Interactionism. Perspective and Method”. Over the past months, Jacqueline Low and Gary Bowden put together a Special Issue on “Blumerian Symbolic Interactionism. The introduction to this Special Issue has been published on Early View of our journal. Therein, Low and Bowden “discuss the significance of Blumer’s variant of interactionism, his contributions to the discipline of sociology, the misinterpretations and misrepresentations of his approach, and the way in which the papers in this issue carry forward his legacy.”
