New article on Early View: Muir, Roosevelt, and Yosemite National Park as an Emergent Sacred Symbol #sssi #sociology

We have just published “Muir, Roosevelt, and Yosemite National Park as an Emergent Sacred Symbol: An Interaction Ritual Analysis of a Camping Trip” by Timothy J. Curry and Kiernan O. Gordon on Early View of the Symbolic Interaction.

Abstract

We argue that interaction ritual (IR) theory provides a temporal and interactional point of origin from which to trace an influential IR chain that became a deciding factor in the unification of Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove under federal control within present-day Yosemite National Park. The emotions generated by the rituals of Roosevelt’s and Muir’s camping trip in May, 1903 in the short term, however, failed to result in a lasting consensus on ideology. This is a point that Roosevelt’s lack of support for Muir in the subsequent controversy over the damming of the Hetch Hetchy Valley clearly documents.

N. Sugrue on Putnam’s ‘Our Kids’ #sssi #sociology #bookreview

We have just published Noreen Sugrue’s review of Robert Putnam’s ‘Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis’. In her review titled “No, It Is Not Naive to Think Communities Matter” Sugrue argues that “Putnam’s concern, fear even, for our children is a wake up call to each of us” and that we should all “consider how your intellectual knowledge might become part of the public dialog that is required to solve the crisis Putnam so vividly puts before us.” Members of SSSI and subscribers of the journal can access the review by clicking the image below.
