    Religion in Public Action.Paul Lichterman - 2012 - Sociological Theory 30 (1):15-36.
    Contemporary social research often has located religion's public influence by focusing on individual or collective religious actors. In this unitary actor model, religion is a stable, uniform feature of an individual or collectivity. However, recent research shows that people's religious expression outside religious congregations varies by context. Building on this new work, along with insights from Erving Goffman and cultural sociology, an alternative, "cultural-interactionist model" of religious expression focuses on how group styles enable and constrain religious expression in public settings.

    Beyond the Seesaw Model: Public Commitment in a Culture of Self-Fulfillment.Paul Lichterman - 1995 - Sociological Theory 13 (3):275-300.
    Communitarian sociological theory and research of the past 30 years has often assumed that a growing culture of self-fulfillment, or "personalism," is ultimately incompatible with commitment to the public good. This article argues that this "seesaw model" does not exhaust the possible relations between personalism and public commitment. It borrows insights from radical democratic theories to argue the existence of a form of public commitment that is enacted through, rather than impeded by, personalism. A cultural analysis that highlights everyday practices (...)

  6. From Culture to Claimsmaking.Paul Lichterman & Kushan Dasgupta - 2020 - Sociological Theory 38 (3):236-262.
    Conceptual approaches to claimsmaking often feature the overarching symbolic templates of political culture or else the strategic actor of the social movement framing approach. Both approaches have value, but neither shows adequately how cultural context influences claimsmaking in everyday situations. To better understand cultural context and situated claimsmaking together, we retheorize the concept of discursive field, showing how such a field is sustained through interaction. Claimsmakers craft claims from basic symbolic categories, in line with the appropriate style for a scene (...)
