Maori Haka NZ Maori haka v Ireland ? Sociology and Culture If culture is so hard to define, why do Sociologists try? Review What is culture? What are the three key social sciences that attempt to examine social behaviour? Define: 1. structural functionalism 2. symbolic interactionalist 3. conflict 4. feminist 5. post modern Cultural Divisions Within Society Culture • A group of people with similar expressions of identity who will share a common link to geography Sub – Culture Counter – Culture • A group of people within a • A rebellion specific culture within culture who will express – a group of their ideals, people who beliefs and will express interests opposing differently but still identify perspectives within a specific and cultural group characteristics Mapping SHS Definitions Structural Functionalist: Society works, when it does not – society will fix itself Symbolic Interactionalist: What we are is obvious by our presentation Conflict: People with power will fight to keep it, people without power will fight to get it Feminist: Women, sex, gender and the power imbalances caused by being female, sex, and gender Post Modern: How do we get and process information, our lives are not able to be explained easily by another person (hermeneutic) 2 New Terms (Yes, write these down!) Cultural Materialism: Human social life is a response to the needs of survival and then the wants of people who have met those needs. Therefore, human cultural groups can be studied through an examination of their “ things” and how they get them. Sociobiology: Human behaviour can be explained through evolution and genetics. People ultimately want to reproduce, eat, and defend their food, mates, and offspring.
