Solidarity through a sense of community and the use of ritual THE most effective means of control because of a “buy in” and the fact that it reproduces itself In particular, if social relations come to be “taken for granted” its can be very effective and powerful (as we have discussed, relations associated with different statuses like race/ethnicity, sex category, etc.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
