dc.description.abstractThis study aims to look at contemporary crowd behaviour, in particular that of the football crowd. The ideas of Elias Canetti Crowds and power (1960) will be used as a theoretical framework, critiquing his proposition of the crowd as a solely collective phenomenon. Using participant observation as the main method of research, a variety of behaviours were identified. This study highlights how the behaviour of some football fans, especially in their interaction with other fans, players and officials, may serve to dissipate collective tensions and may also encourage collective responses. It is suggested that the crowd is not merely a collective expression but through a process of fission and fusion, moves between examples of collective behaviour and behaviour which is internally differentiated.en
