Rethinking Neo-Tribes: Ritual, Social Differentiation and Symbolic Boundaries in 'Alternative' Food Practice
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Child and Youth Studies.
2018 (English)In: Neo-Tribes: Consumption, Leisure and Tourism / [ed] Anne Hardy, Andy Bennett, Brady Robards, Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, p. 17-31Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Critiquing neo-tribal research for discounting the role of social differentiation and overstating the inclusive and non-hierarchical aspects of neo-tribal communality, this chapter attempts to extend the neo-tribe concept to incorporate processes of exclusion, hierarchy and symbolic boundary formation as well as acknowledge the continuing influence of class relations. To this end, it firstly draws on Durkheim’s, Goffman’s and Collins’ writings on rituals and collective effervescence, to discuss how neo-tribal gatherings have a hierarchical and excluding character. Secondly, the paper discusses recent research influenced by Bourdieu and studies on ‘alternative’ food consumption to conceptualise how neo-tribal formations can be connected to class-based forms of cultural hierarchy.
