STAR WARS SUBCULTURE Assignment | Sociology
STAR WARS SUBCULTURE: Watch this 10-minute video clip on Star Wars Fans (https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x115u4).
Not formal essay, you don’t need intro body and conclusion. Simply answer question.
Answer the following questions (should be 250+ words): What specific American values are the fans threatening and how? What are several ways that the fans receive negative sanctions for their non-conformity? How are these negative sanctions promoting social conformity? The fans and the humiliation they are subjected to are a good demonstration of how powerful cultural norms can be in controlling behavior. In this video, we can see how deviation from mainstream behaviors often results in social rejection. How do negative sanctions keep you conforming to cultural norms? Are there activities, goals, interests you do not pursue for the threat of being judged harshly? Overall, why is it important that most/all people of society follow a set of rules and expectations of behavior (norms)? How can this be limited to a person’s potential?
