Abstrakt / Utdrag
Building on Erwin Goffman’s (1974) notion of frame, the article approaches the ‘festive’ as a socially produced conceptual structure by means of which people organize their perception of and participation in the world. Picking up on the epistemic threats initially developed in early French sociology, it explores the ability of different elements and forms of the ‘festive’ to act as mediator for social change.
