social settings

social settings

the varying kinds of socially created ‘locales’ or ‘regions’ in time and space which provide the contexts of different types of social interaction, e.g. a courtroom or a school. Thus social setting refers to more than physical ‘places’, but rather to, what GIDDENS (1984), drawing upon GOFFMAN, refers to as a ‘zoning’ of social practices.
