Sample text

What this range of new conceptual frameworks offers is the possibility of doing justice to the complexity of the link between culture and society, always safeguarding against the risks of assuming a homogeneity that does not exist. According to another contributor to the same volume, Dorothy Holland, non-person-centered approaches “permit inattention to the social distribution of cultural knowledge and its role in the reproduction of power relations. Assumptions of homogeneity deflect attention from the important processes of social conflict, the social symbolism of knowledge, and the processes and consequences of individual resistance that are important, even in the present research on an everyday and common activity” (Holland 1992, 86).

Indeed, because of the infinite variables at work at any given moment (researchers estimate that thousands of cultural models are learnt over the course of a lifetime), alongside the changing hierarchy of models, the constant change that comes from this inherently relational process, the performativity of identity and, of course, the possibility that individuals can contradict themselves, any attempt at tracing identity through discourse must admit its own limits and realize the impossibility of providing more than a snapshot of the self.
