Symbolic-Material, Culture-Colonial


1.)  How does the culture-centered approach make sense of the material and symbolic worlds in which we live? Given this, can social change be envisioned and effected through only one domain, either material or symbolic means? Or must both be utilized, and if so, what is their relationship to one another?

2.)  What are the epistemological underpinnings White’s and Bierstedt’s concepts of culture? In what ways do these concepts reflect the colonial knowledges and imperialist imperatives discussed in Chapter 2?
