This entry briefly explores the development of pastiche as an idea within post-modern cultural studies before examining its usage within sociological research. In redeploying pastiche to help understand social identities and hegemonic power, sociologists have departed in important ways from its original usage. In this way, they have developed a useful and nuanced account of social power which focuses on reflexive micro-sociological interactions as the basis from which social structures are recast, recreated and potentially subverted.
