Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The purpose of this project is to investigate how the Danish alcohol culture affects the possibilities of politically regulating the area. Based on thorough research on this point of interest, we have made an analysis on the way, and to what extend, the Danes consume alcohol. In our analysis we draw in perspectives from Erving Goffman’s ritual theory and Michel Foucault’s theories on discourse and governmentality. The purpose is to describe some of the tendencies we view as characterizing for the Danish alcohol culture. These theories are put in relation to the research conducted on the area in order to complete an in depth analysis, which will help us answer our problem statement. Based on the analysis we have estimated, that the Danish people’s relationship towards alcohol, in general is combined with “coziness” and social gathering, and that this is why, they have no wish to change their own alcohol consumption. From this point, we have been able to see a relation between the characteristics of the Danish alcohol culture and an influence on the political regulation on the area today.
