Sample text

Ownership and control, Williams shows, are sometimes used primarily because they constitute what one media mogul called a ‘licence to print money’. But they can also be used because they make possible the ideological indoctrination of the masses (or both may be the case) (Williams 1962). At other times, Williams uses the term ‘cultural materialism’ to describe the production of culture as distinct from the mere ownership of the means by which it is produced. In particular he was interested in the study of ‘mediation’: the place of producers of culture (writers, editors, film-makers); their relationship to those who employ them; and the degree of ‘relative autonomy’ they may possess; the content of what they produce including the ideas they communicate about everything in social life, from sex-roles to dress-styles, not just about specifically political issues.

There were also different ways of thinking about time. There were differences between those who taught their students to look at tribal societies as if they were taking ‘photographs’ at a single point in time (because they assumed cultures to be unchanging and stable) and people like archaeologists, who necessarily had to deal with the evidence of change. Archaeologists identified change in technologically simple societies such as the ‘Anasazi’ at Mesa Verde, Colorado, who had lived there for centuries and then suddenly disappeared in a couple of generations.

Groups with customs very different from those of the majority or of other minorities might live together in ‘ghettos’ within a city and follow ‘ways of life’ with their own rules. Conceptualisations of ethnic minority cultures were taken a great deal further in the work of the Chicago School of urban sociology in the 1920s and 1930s, and of a whole succession of schools now generally lumped together as ‘deviancy theory’. Social coherence, for these writers, now lay at the level of the sub-culture rather than at the societal level.
