Acquisition of Cultural Practices

Critically explores the notion of ?practice? from a number of perspectives, including symbolic interactionism, phenomenology, ethnomethodology, language socialization, and contemporary social theory, utilizing ethnographic studies on the acquisition of a variety of cultural practices, including speech and gender practices, across a range of societies and contexts. Analyzes selected social practices in terms of how they are framed, keyed, and constituted through speech and other expressive resources, through use of video and transcription.
