Essay Question and Content: Throughout this course we have encountered how culture is dynamic, changing through the tensions of conformity and conflict. In your paper I want you to first explain anthropologically what is the concept of culture. Then, for the main portion of your paper I want you to explore how the Covid-19 pandemic ties into and is impacting concepts and topics we have touched on in this course. For instance; globalization, time-space compression, uneven developments, flexible accumulation, culture, nationalism, race and racism, social inequality and stratification etc. You do not have to use all of these concepts. Pick two or three of these concepts as your main topics. As you are writing your essay, please make sure to pay attention to the following:
• Within your discussion you should not only define these terms (culture, gender, social stratification etc); it is also important that you apply these comments to examples from the Guest textbook.
