Socialization

Competing notions :EnculturationUpbringingMaturing

Forms : Primary – SecondaryOther – Self

Intermezzo :Self & (political) identityPhase-thinking

Socialization

Key emphases :

process

not in vacuum

resources

previous choices

other-dependency

changes with time

as well as place

Late-modernity :

more personal flexibility

self-initiated

self-oriented (reflexive)


Political socialization

Political socialization

Key calls

take account extension youth phase (Niemi & Hepburn)

go beyond phase/stage-thinking (Sears et al.)

focus on reconstruction messages in interactions (Wasburn)

include APC-effects

life course transitions (age/life cycle effects)

events as catalysts (period effects)

formative experiences (cohort/generation effect)

longitudinal (panel) surveys iso postmodernist theorizing


Political socialization1

Political socialization

Domain-specific hypotheses

effects similar for interactions with parents, teachers, peers, (new) media (incl. does message from parents change when discussed with peers; see Wasburn) ?

effects similar for values, attitudes (incl. cognitions, emotions, etc.), and actions ?

re : actions : effects similar for voting, demonstrating, volunteering, blogging, buycotts, etc. ?


Generations

Generations

Many labels : e.g., protest generation, lost generation, backseat generation, ‘hotel mama’ generation, etc., vary by nation (similarities are there)

Conditions : similar historic location, concious of shared formative history and destiny, groups articulating generation’s voice

NL : political cleavages war/pre-war and post-war generation

Difficult necessity : disentangling APC-effects (identification problem); impossible in one-shot survey : e.g., say in a 2006-survey people aged 20 are more right-wing than people aged 30 and formative period is 15-25 years of age; why more right-wing ? Because of being 20, events of 2001-2006, or being born in 1986 vis-a-vis being 30, events of 1991-2006, or being born in 1976 ? Nobody will know in a one-shot survey !


Emerging repertoires

Emerging repertoires

Survey questions signs of the times: playing cards, occupying buildings, writing letters to Congress (what was conventional-unconventional then, is now no more)

Not innocent ! Younger generations seen as non-civic threatening the survival of smooth interactions and democracy based on these surveys

Alternative forms of engagement have developed : personalized, identity-based, consumerist, informal, spontaneous, short-lived, flexible, reflexive, feminine (Bennett; Ester & Vinken)

Outcomes of political socialization younger generation ?

What does this mean for research ? (Stolle & Hooghe)

Do new forms matter ? Does shopping make the street lights burn? Do ‘real’ politics increasingly rely on older ‘civic’ generations only?
