Slides for a talk given at "Media and Proximity", a conference held at the "Locating Media" Graduate School in Siegen, Germany, April 22/23 2010. Its main point is to apply Turner's concepts of liminality / liminoidity (the former applies e.g. to early agrarian, the latter to post-industrial society and in general societies where 'leisure time' is not governed by collective rhythms, but a matter of individual option) and their consequences for social forms and patterns of behaviour (e.g. in liminality, the play with the material of culture, a violation of rules is obligatory, producing often excentric phenomena typical for rites of passage).
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
