Chanting Down the New Jerusalem

University of California Press

This chapter studies DJ Cimarron, a disc jockey who sought to address socioeconomic inequality and the responsibility of the “have-mores” toward the “have-lesses.” DJ Cimarron's case shows that discursive regimes that are constitutive of dominant societal identifications always “fail” to a certain extent, because people are social subjects and are never carbon copies. This chapter also discusses the modification of the performance of social roles.

Keywords:   DJ Cimarron, socioeconomic inequality, discursive regimes, societal identifications, social roles
