The Re-invention and Extinction of Tradition

Speaker: Tina DACIN
Queen's University-Canada

30 November 2005 - From 14h30 to 16h00

"The concept of tradition has been studied in sociology, anthropology, and cultural geography. Much of the work that examines traditions has tended to view them as being rather invariant in nature. In this historical case study, we draw upon ideas from work on culture, identity and institutional change to understand the evolving nature of traditions. More generally, we ask the following questions: How and why are traditions created? How are traditions re-invented? What is the process of extinction?

In order to answer these questions we focus on the changing character and potency of a single tradition over time and study the Texas A & M University tradition of Bonfire from 1909-2002. Our study of this tradition specifically examines the co-evolution of the university and the tradition over time by focusing on changes in identity, resource mobilization, custodians, contests and strategies. Our findings illuminate a number of important themes that provide an understanding of the boundaries and changing nature of traditions".
