Example text

Community untested by vulnerability is neither here nor there, neither weak nor strong. But strength and fragility as elements of the practices of community, as qualities of community, do not exist independently or concretely outside these practices, nor do they lie dormant until called up. Strength and resilience are ephemeralreal and relevant only as the social relations of community play out. Strength in one context may be fragility in another. Resilience is a possible response to vulnerability, fragility is another possible response to vulnerability, and fragility can sometimes be developed into the strength of resilience.

For example, communities invent their own heterogeneity and differences within, even when they look homogeneous from the outside. Differences in roles, social status, and power, Page 5 even when taken for granted, are important within community. However these differences are configured, whether justly or unjustly, they affect community. Each time differences are explicitly laid out and examined, opportunities for strengthening or fracturing the community are available to be chosen. Those in community may choose to tolerate potential or actual instances of fracture, if these are balanced by instances of community strengthening.

The word community has two important meanings in current popular usage: It labels specific groups of people and describes specific social relations among people within a social group. A group may consider itself to be a community or may be labeled as such by outsiders. Certain types of social relations may be pointed out (again, by insider or outsider) as indicative of the presence of community within the group. Conceptions of community are multiple because community is constituted, sustained, enriched, and transformed by the relationships and shared meanings among its members.
