Dramaturgy is an approach that analyzes social life in terms of the stage. Review Suguira’s “Goffman and the Web” reading (see Resources) and analyze your own life from a dramaturgical perspective. Respond to the following:
- What are some instances where you use the front stage? The back stage?
- Why do you use theses stages at different points during your day?
- What examples of impression management do you encounter daily?
- How does your analysis differ based on location (work versus home)?
