Abstract

當代中國的社會結構出現了重大轉變,一個新興的中產階級逐漸形成。在北京,我們採用民族志的方法對一個中產階級的住宅小區進行了訪談,並分析小區之內道德秩序的構建:關鍵要素之一是對“公共”和“私人”的界定與協調。我們試圖瞭解居民們常態下的日常生活,並考察他們內部的“微觀政治學”。從如何恰當飼養寵物到區內居民的著裝問題,由業主之間討論的話題,瞭解到中產階級如何在社區內打造一種新的生活方式。
Based upon an ethnographic study of a middle class residential community in Beijing, this paper is an attempt to understand the process of the formation of this middle class. The focus of this paper will be placed on the construction of a moral order in a middle class residential community. A crucial component of this moral order is the negotiation of the boundary between public and private. Such negotiation involves mutual respect and the acceptance of shared norms and expectations. The residents of the community are learning to express themselves freely as well as to accommodate differences. This ethnographic study is an attempt to look at the residents’ everyday life and to examine the "micro-politics" of the middle class. Through understanding their daily conversation and discussion on mundane issues, we shall see how the emerging middle class is forming a lifestyle and a moral order in their community.
