This study, Carhartts indflydelse på subjektiveringsprocesser - en teoretisk diskussion af socialkonstruktionisme, examines how objects, in this specific study commercials and Carhartt clothing, have an influence on the way people are made subjects. The paper concludes that even though commercials have an influence they are not the only defining factors on how the product is being used and what kind of subject that is being produced. The project clarifies this issue by involving a social constructionist aspect, represented by Kenneth J. Gergen. By including his theoretical terms narrative and discourse we are able to understand how people shape meaning in their life through their own narration. In continuation hereof Bruno Latour’s Actor-network theory is being used for the purpose of underlining that even non-humane objects also are a defining factor at this point.
