Family Discourse, Organizational Embeddedness, and Local Enactment.
Gubrium, Jaber F.; Holstein, James A.
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n1 p66-81 Mar 1993
Treats family as everyday, working vocabulary or discourse for assigning meaning to social relations. Considers social processes and descriptive conditions through which meaning is established, managed, and transcended. Presents ethnographic material to show how family is local enactment of practical reasoning substantively bounded by local culture yet offering grounds for resistance. (Author/NB)
