Review on Recent Developments in French Interactionist Sociology #sssi

There is a strong but fragmented interactionist tradition in various European countries. One of these countries is France where in particular Howard S. Becker and his sociology are very well received. In fact, Becker has made it his habit to spend some of the summer months in Paris.

In his review “An overview of French Interactionist Sociology ” of  “Les mondes pluriels de Howard S. Becker: travail sociologique et sociologie du travail” by Marc Perrenoud and colleagues Loic Riom discusses the influence of interactionism on French sociology and Becker’s role in the development of this influence.
