Sociology 100:001 Professor Gong September 29- October 2016 Social Interaction. Structures around statuses and roles.  Statuses. A recognizable social position one occupies. o Status set- all the statuses one holds simultaneously. o Master status- a status that seems to override all others and affects all other statuses one possesses. o Types of statuses:  Ascribed status- involuntary.  Achieved status- voluntary.  Roles. Set of expected behaviors. o Role set- a cluster of roles attached to a single status. o Role conflict- two or more statuses held at the same time place contradictory role demands. o Role strain- incompatible role demands are placed on a person in a single status.  Theories of Social Interaction. o Symbolic Interactionism.  Dramaturgical Theory. (Impression management).  A process by which people manage: o The setting (stage). o Their dress (costumes). o Their words and or their gestures (scripts).  To correspond to make the impression they are trying to make.  Focus of attention: social life is essentially a theoretical performance, in which we are all actors on a metaphorical stage, with roles, scripts, costumes, and sets. o Conflict Theory.  Focus of attention: statuses are arranged in hierarchies during social interaction. o Ethnomethodology (Functionalism).  Focus of attention: influences of preexisting norms.
