"To locate in the tenor of their setting the sources of their spell: Clifford Geertz and the 'strong' program in Cultural Sociology
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Social Sciences. (Centrum för kultursociologi)
2011 (English)In: Interpreting Clifford Geertz: Cultural Investigation in the Social Sciences / [ed] Jeffrey C. Alexander, Philip Smith, and Matthew Norton, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011, First edition, 145-166 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Clifford Gertz was central to the cultural turn of late-twentieth-century social science. Both as theorist and researcher, his call for an interpretive, meaning-centered approach sounded beyond anthropology, not only in sociology, history, and political science, but also linguistics, science studies, philosophy, and the humanities. His celebrated theoretical essays and iconic studies remain deeply influential today. This volume, of which Swedish cultural sociologist Mats Trondman is a contributor, is the first to examine the full range of Geertz's influence, tracing it through various disciplines. It is also the most ambitious effort yet to reflect, in an interdisciplinary manner, on the nature of Geertz's theory of culture and his methods for studying it. To date, there has been no impartial, comprehensive, and authoritative work publsihed on this critical figure. Contributors include an interdisciolinary team of leading scholars investigating the three core components of contested legacy: his theory, his method, and his style.
