    • Process (WHEN?): When does this event take place? How does this event proceed from one moment to the next? What are we witnessing as we observe this social interaction over time?
    • Identity (WHO?): Who are the people involved? In what ways are they interacting? What are the “roles” or social identities they are taking on?

    • Function (WHY?): Why are they even participating together at this event? What immediate purpose or function does this event serve for its participants?
    • Ideology (TO WHAT EXTENT?): What are the broader social meanings of the event? What are its political and economic implications? What cultural beliefs and values does this event uphold or resist?
