Listening to Culture presents everyday cultural activity in Indian family and community life in order to demonstrate why and how such activity must be encompassed in the study of individuals and collectives. The author explores the rich world of everyday talk—in families, with children, between friends, at the work place—and shows the significance of this domain of social activity for an understanding of culture.
