Cleanliness and Order: The Clean Campaign in a Fijian Village
As a concept and representation with moral sentiments,cleanliness is shaped in the discourse and practice of the Fijians. The divergence and consensus of views over cleanness and dirtiness and their relationship with orderly life are manifested in the representation of the cleanness-related concept and practice. Cleanness and dirtiness are not only the representation of a classification system;they should also be understood as a process,in which the classification system has been constructed by different powers throughout history. Different individuals of a group understand the existing classification system differently partly because of the local power competition the individuals participate in.. Power competition triggers changes and imbalance within the existing social structure and order pattern,and the dynamic balance of social order has to be achieved through the representation of the full recognition of the group members and through their moral consensus.
