Explain one sociological perspective of the “self” and one example of how it applies in the context of social media.
For Mead, the self emerges from the ability to understand the roles of others and consequently act in accordance with one’s own role within a social structure. The self and the other are intertwined, as one cannot have the concept of self without perceiving and understanding the norms of a social situation. As people generally have “friends” or “followers” on social media from several different social contexts, this can become complicated. For example, the norms and expectations of a religious institution have the potential to be in conflict with those of a college group of friends. Social media users may compensate for any perceived discrepancy by crafting an online presence which will not offend either group, or perhaps using privacy settings to control who sees what social media activity. In this way, the concept of self, as theorized by Mead, is consciously managed on social media.
How does the setting of “The Handmaid’s Tale?” function as a satirical device?
The setting of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is the dystopian society of Gilead. Gilead functions satirically as a criticism of synthetic morality, and exposes its tragic consequences. Traditional gender roles (where women belong at home with the children, and men hold all authority and leadership in society) are hyperbolized to terrifying extremes. This effectively illustrates the danger of a society that nurtures this mindset. The falsely represented religious doctrine and artificial piety which Gilead was established upon work to demonstrate how such ideologies destroy humanity, despite their attempt to appear moral or beneficial.
