  • The Subculture Of Malls As Locations With Social Function

    8 pages in length. Culture is defined in myriad ways and influenced by an infinite number of elements, most of which exists in constant state of fluidity. To characterize culture as the foundation around which entire societies revolve is to recognize the singular influence the ongoing progression of mankind has upon the very nature of civilization. Indeed, the extent to which humanity and culture reflect an ever-evolving synergistic coupling is both grand and far-reaching; that certain aspects of a given culture seem to define this correlation more than others speaks to the common denominator found in such social symbols as shopping malls. Meaghan Morris's account of the cultural significance inherent to contemporary shopping centers provides a sociological look at the way in which these collections of retail stores serve as much more than simply a place to purchase goods, but rather a location where some of the most important community interaction takes place. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
