Everyday Routine, Social Structure and Sociological Theory: Using Ethnographic Semantics for Research on Prisons
Keywords:ethnography, ethnoscience, qualitative methods, prisons, organizational culture
AbstractThe ethnographic reconstruction of a selected semantic field within a prison reveals the potential of a method hardly ever used in the research field in the German speaking countries: ethnographic semantics. Thus it is demonstrated how fertile this kind of research on prisons in terms of understanding this particular social order can be. In addition, references to general sociological theory and other super-ordinate discourses concerning prison-practice become intelligible. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0201159
