Cultural Explosion Commences C

Standard

I’m a sociologist at heart, it’s what I studied in college, and it’s never left me. I am a student of people, and today, C is for “culture.” But I discovered something, looking for my morning book: there are too many amazing-looking books on culture to pick only two for the day. So I’m going a little crazy–also a C word–and posting a bunch, sans descriptions, covers and titles only. And you’ll see what I mean.

  1. A topic as vast as any ocean; where to start? I’d probably start with the ‘culture of female aggression’ book. I wonder if it’s heavy enough to beat someone with?

    • OK, that absolutely made me laugh loud enough for the neighbors to wonder if I’d lost my mind. I know, it’s an intriguing subject, but they all are! That’s how I got here this morning 🙂

    Sociology is really interesting. I majored in Psychology, which obviously isn’t the same, but has enough crossover that I find it just as interesting!
