  2. 2. MY DEFINITION OF CULTURE !   Culture is the dynamic construction of meaning. It is not a static, fixed body of knowledge or practices, but rather is constantly evolving, always in a process of becoming. !   People, participating in groups and communities (that are always in a state of change), actively develop new cultural practices and construct new cultural products. These new practices and products develop from and contribute to the development of new cultural perspectives, or ways of understanding the world. !   The purpose of fieldwork is to understand this process, to understand how meaning is (re)constructed.

  11. 11. PRODUCTS PRACTICES COMMUNITIES COMMUNI TIES CULTURE PEOPLE PERSPECTI VES!   COMMUNITIES are social groups or social contexts in which members of that community interact.!   Communities vary in size: !   broader communities – national culture, language, gender, race, religion, socio-economic class, or generation !   narrower communities – a local community group, a university club, a company, a family!   Communities are not isolated, but co-exist with other communities. They are in different relationships with one another: separation, cooperation, collaboration, conflict – and these change over time.

PRODUCTS PRACTICES PEOPLE COMMUNI TIES CULTURE PEOPLE PERSPECTI VES!   PEOPLE are the individual members of the community.!   Each person is a distinct mix of belonging to a number of communities on the one hand and having individual experiences on the other.!   Culture exists both in the communities (groups) and also in each individual member. That is, culture is both collective and individual – it is both social and psychological.
