This is the second Volume of the Proceedings of the International Symposium on The Present and Future of Symbolic Interactionism held in Pisa, 3-5 June 2010, sponsored by the University of Pisa, the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction (SSSI) and the Italian Sociological Association (AIS). This collection of selected papers by many people engaged or interested in Symbolic Interactionism and constructionism well illustrates the wide horizon of application in many substantive theoretical fields and empirical dimensions of this perspective. The essays included in the book span from the analysis of interpersonal relations to that of the impact of public policy, from the issues concerning the self and the body to those relating to media, religion, exclusion and diversity.
