Stigmatization of a Cultural Ritual

This research examines the stigmatization of a popular cultural ritual in Norway. Using the theory of the “stigma turbine,” we identify the stigmatizing actions enacted by stakeholders of the ritual. We also explore how the “dark side” of rituals shapes the actions of the participants of the ritual.
