This means that awareness of domination without a change in the social relations that produce the dominated habitus (which produces and transmits dispositions) will not alleviate the domination (Bourdieu 2000: 138). A further point to note about subordinated identity is that categories of identity, definitions of deviancy, and modes of resistance are all couched in terms set by dominant groups. Even if stigmatized groups organize to resist their stigmatization and to change the ways normals relate to them, they often do so within the boundaries of the group as set by dominants (Goffman’s ‘normals’), so the resistance is double-edged.
On the other hand, an overemphasis on the subordination side of the equation is also problematic. Important work has been done by scholars such as James Scott on analyzing resistance, especially the myriad small forms of resistance most easily engaged in by subordinated people as a continuing part of dealing with repression (Scott 1985). Some researchers, however, possibly seduced by romantic images of anti-colonial struggles and possibly loath to be seen as ‘blaming the victim’, have tended to overlook collaboration in articulations with modernity, and have read resistance into social practices that were arguably not about resistance (Ortner 1995).
It seems likely there were complicated motivations involved, however, and some of the many personal refusals making up ‘the Native’s laziness’ might be more accurately labeled something other than ‘conscious sabotage’. Intent and consequences should be considered when studying resistance (Scott 1985: 295–303). Scott’s ‘malicious speech acts’ are interesting examples of resistance. Some verbal protests may be resistance but some might better be described simply as expressions of resentment, or even Nietzschean ressentiment.
