Shyness and Society by Susie Scott

Book Description

Using Symbolic Interactionist theories and descriptions of the everyday life of self-defined 'shy' people, the book explores the social processes of becoming a 'shy person' and performing the shy self in public places. The question of interactional competence is discussed in relation to issues of identity, embodiment, performativity and deviance.

Books By Author Susie Scott

Negotiating Identity: Symbolic Interactionist Approaches to Social Identity by Susie Scott Negotiating Identity: Symbolic Interactionist Approaches to Social Identity, Hardback (September 2015)

Identity is never just an individual matter; it is intricately shaped by our experiences of social life. Taking a Symbolic Interactionist approach, and drawing on Goffman s dramaturgical theory, Susie Scott explores the micro-social processes of interaction through which identities are created, maintained, challenged and reinvented.

Total Institutions and Reinvented Identities by Susie Scott Total Institutions and Reinvented Identities, Hardback (October 2011)

Why do people enter total institutions -- places that confine and control them around the clock -- and how does the experience change them? This book updates Goffman's classic model by introducing the Re-inventive Institution, where members voluntarily commit themselves to pursue regimes of self-improvement.

Making Sense of Everyday Life by Susie Scott Making Sense of Everyday Life, Hardback (June 2009)

Student-friendly introduction to the sociology of everyday life. Introduces in very accessible style the various theories used to interpret our everyday actions that on the surface of things might look mundane. Considers topics such as eating and drinking, leisure, time and schedules, emotions, home, as well as how to study everyday life.
