What You Need to Know About : Culture as Poetics

Culture as poetics elucidates the social and symbolic constructions of culture. It emphasizes the ordinariness of everyday life. Such constructions include rites of passage, social rituals, and those social performances that instantiate and reconstitute values and norms of the culture. Rites of passage are cultural instances of performance that explain the ways in which people move from one point in time to another on their journey of life. Humans engage in life crises and enact ceremonies, such as rites of passage, in order to offer safe travel from one instance in life to another. Other categories of cultural performance include ceremonies with strangers, pregnancy and childbirth rites, initiation rites, betrothal and marriage rites, and separation or funeral rites.
