8/30/16 SOCY 101 Week 2 Major Research Designs: -surveys: interviews/ questionnaires -ethnography: observations/ direct participation in a closely watched group -experiments: artificially created situation that allows researchers to manipulate the situation -existing sources: using previously collected data Cultural Variation: -subculture: segments of society that share a distinct pattern of customs, rules and traditions that differ from the larger society -argot: specialized language that is created to allow insiders to understand words/ special meanings -counterculture: when a subculture deliberately opposes certain aspects of the larger culture Social Structure: the way in which a society is organized into predictable relationships, concepts of social interaction and social structure closely linked to groups and organizations (macro) Social Interaction: the ways in which people respond to one another (individual)…. The nature of social interaction and what constitutes reality varies across cultures (ex. Marriage/love in US vs Japan). The ability to define social reality reflects a group’s power within a society (ex. Tattoos) Elements of Social Structure -statuses: any of the full range of socially defined positions within a large group or society from the lowest to highest position, a person can hold several statuses at the same time -ascribed status: assigned to a person by society without regard for a person’s unique talents or characteristics -achieved status: comes to a person through their own efforts -master status: dominates other statuses and determines a person’s general position in society Societies deal with inconsistencies by agreeing that certain statuses are more important
