Social Anthropology
Abstract
The aim of this thesis is to show how risk is used in the construction and realization of alternative identities, and how this strategy is connected to world systemic processes. The focal point is on the relation between social movements and risk, which also motivates the use of the case studies, Occupy Wall Street and the drug movement. Their perceived risks and risk taking behaviors will be studied through a comparison between the nascent states of the groups to cast light on why these groups are perceived as risk taking and how this behavior constitutes a means for dealing with alterity against the backdrop of hegemonic decline and the fragmentation of the modernist subject.
