Unit 2 has discussed how sociologists identify cultures and subcultures. Cultures and subcultures have unique components, such as language, values, norms (behaviors), and food. For this Discussion Board, you will dive deeper into culture by completing the following:
Using the textbook located on your Bookshelf, define each of the four components of culture:
Be sure to paraphrase and cite your sources.
Next, choose a popular television show (examples include The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, The Goldbergs, and Orange is the New Black) or a movie you have enjoyed.
For your chosen show or movie, provide specific examples for each component of culture (language, values, norms, and food) found within your show or movie.
For example, in The Simpsons, language can be seen with the word “D’oh” and the phrase, “Don’t have a cow, man!”
Each TV show could be said to represent a subculture of mainstream society. How do the four components of culture (language, values, norms, and food) identified above combine to make a group that is different from or similar to other groups you would expect to see in mainstream American culture?
Finally, choose 1 of the following theorists: Durkheim, Marx, or Cooley. What does your chosen theorist say about the role of culture in shaping human behavior?
