What is culture?
Now that we know that society is about the organisation and functioning of communities we need to look at the critical area of society called culture. It is time we tried to clearly describe what composes culture and what we need to look at when we study a culture. We have mentioned in class that it is to do with things such as values, beliefs, dress, food, art, norms, taboos and ways of behaving. The following slideshows give a more detailed and at times contested view of culture.
Within in any mainstream culture there are many sub-cultures within a culture.
Cultural groups are different around the world, but so are the sub-cultural expressions of those who feel that they are on the fringes of society.
