Kai Erikson Describes Communities
Read Erickson first then read Orwell after that answer this question
Question: Kai Erikson describes communities as being “boundary maintaining” (9), which means they share a defined geographic and/or cultural space. He argues that any behavior that pushes or crosses that boundary is considered “inappropriate or immoral” (10) i.e. deviant. How might this definition help you understand any of the texts we’ve read?
