Towards a Definition of the Concept of Scene: Communicating on the Basis of Things that Matter

Summary/Abstract: The article proceeds from four different but equally important concepts of scene by the authors John Irwin, Barry Shank, Will Straw, and Keith Harris. On the basis of these authors’ formulations, some essential elements for conceptualizing scenes are developed - interaction, communication, identity, and local and supralocal spaces. The four authors’ definitions are elaborated comparatively, and certain problems in the operationalisation of the concept are discussed. The authors of this article propose their own definition of the concept of scene, which is based on communication around core or important “things”.
