Editor’s Choice: John Johnson on Jack Douglas’ #sssi #emca #phenomenology

I certainly was not aware of the amount and breadth of his publications! It is very hard to find any information on him, or even a cv.

Symbolic Interaction (Journal) Blog

Many SSSI members and scholars in symbolic interactionism as well as sociologists with an interest in ethnomethodology, phenomenology, existential sociology know Jack Douglas and his contribution. But even those more experienced interactionists might not be aware of the amount and breadth of publications that Jack Douglas has contributed to our field of studies.


John Johnson who studied with Douglas in San Diego kindly wrote a review of this great sociologists’ work and contributions that hopefully will invigorate younger interactionists to become curious about Jack Douglas and his studies. John Johnson’s paper now is on Early View of Symbolic Interaction.

A large amount of Jack Douglas’ papers can be found here.
