New Article on Neighbourhood Identity Early View #sssi #sociology #ethnography

In sociology, there is a growing interest in urban ethnography. Recently, our journal Symbolic Interaction published reviews of Matthew Desmond’s “Evicted“, Emma Jackson’s “Young Homeless People and Urban Space“, and Alice Goffman’s “On the Run“. In her artile “Looking Forward, Looking Back: Collective Memory and Neighborhood Identity in Two Urban Parks” that has just been published on Early View of our journal Sofya Aptekar (University of Massachusetts) uses the urban culturalist lens to investigate why two parks in New York despite their similarities support different kinds of meaning making and use.

On Early View “Social Media and Media Logics Shape Policing in the Digital Age” Julie Wiest’s review of Chris Schneider’s book “Policing and Social Media”

With the growing pervasiveness of social media in everyday life it is not surprising that the work of the police has been influenced by this new form of communication. It may however be surprising that until now  sociological research has largely explored how policing changes when crime scenes and actual crime incidence are being filmed and then widely distributed on social networking sites. Christopher Schneider has recently published a book that uses the media logic approach developed by David Altheide to systematically study the impact of social media on police work. Julie Wiest’s review of his book has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction. Members can access the review by clicking on the image below.

New on Early View: Maja Sawicka ‘Searching for a Narrative of Loss. Interactional Ordering of Ambiguous Grief’ #sssi #sociology

Maja Sawicka’s article “Searching for a Narrative of Loss. Interactional Ordering of Ambiguous Grief” conceptualizes the experience of grief arising from miscarriage/stillbirth as both culturally “disembedded”—not regulated by a coherent set of feeling and display rules, and interactionally “disenfranchised”—framed by the immediate social surrounding of the bereaved as illegitimate. Her article based on a content analysis of online discussion boards and interviews with the moderators of these lists has just been published on Early view of our journal. Members can download it HERE.
