  • (cp. counter-pubic
    sphere)
  • community as an articulation (Hall) of
    different social actors and groups which is
    neither necessary nor inevitable but
    rathercontingent and volatilea unity of
    differences a unity forged through symbol,
    ritual, language and discursive practices
    (Howley 20056)
