EGA provides personal testimonies and documents bearing on academic life in the post WWII Untied States, with special attention to the plight of women in the social sciences.
This web-based, open-source project serves as a clearing house for those interested in the dramaturgical perspective in sociology and biographical methods of research. Shalin, ed. Socrates believed that the unexamined life is not worth living and extolled bios philosophicus or bios theoretikos. We take this to mean that our lives must be informed by principles and our principles embodied in our lives.
As the interviews and memoirs collected for the EGA suggest, Erving was a participant observer par excellence, constantly exploring, experimenting, testing social conventions, charting the boundaries of the interaction order, and unnerving those around him in the process. The biocritical inquiry and the Goffman archives it spawned explore the intersection between the biographical and theoretical corpus of Erving Goffman and people of his era.
We see the EGA as a collective enterprise, with all those interested sharing info, engaging in dialogues, serving as sounding boards for each other. This promises to be a different kind of history and study of society, an inquiry that transgresses the lines separating the subject and object of research, where we can not only do justice to our teachers, colleagues, and friends, but also engage in collectively-festive therapy, settle some old accounts in the spirit of charity and fairness, and exorcise the ghosts of academic years past.
T he site co-directors are Sherri Cavan and Dmitri Shalin. Frances Goffman Bay and Esther Besbris are the project consultants. The site managers welocme readers' comments and contribitions. If you had a chance to observe Erving or heard a tale worth retelling, you can contribute a memoir or have your interview recorded and added to the Goffman Archives.
