Anthropology 2 Hines 11/05/07 Recap lecture 12: interpretivism applied Brings to imaginative realization a dimension of our experience normally well- obscured from view NFL as an American social text and evokes claim by Geertz that idea that (above) Sports as a ritual: routinized and discrete o Gender, race, sexual-orientation ideals made manifest o Not just at game Social texts an enculturation tools Not just in youth! One way we get “the script” Grammar v. practice of human cultural existence Foley o Transgression: ironically enhance individual images o To know how and when: demonstrates cultural knowledge of group o E.g. Test!!!!!!!! Powder-puff – fascinating ritual that accompanies football, seen as a ritual inversion, men into women, women into men, rather than challenging that, it actually reinforces them, the transgression of them is only in a certain time and place. License to transcend boundaries, only in specific time, place and script Good ol’ boys and people in training – transgression reinforces dominate ideals, in training for season, alternate ideals that calls them to do other things (drinking, etc) violates ideals of being in training. Most of us exist in society where there are alternate ideals, Mead women’s ideals diff. then Americans. Gives position in society, successful in being rowdy and in training, when done right, then they prove to themselves and community that they are doing things right. Reinforces norms of social group, come out being revered as good young men

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
