GROUP 2 a) Based on ‘the Geography of Time’, describe the difference between Clock Time and Event Time.

What can we learn about the Fore social transformation? Can you incorporate a dialectical perspective (Marx’s idea) to better understand Fore’s social transformation? In your discussion, please pay attention to “cultural leveling” and the impact of technology in your book (Pp. 58-60) GROUP 3 a) Analyze ‘A Look Behind the Veil’ through symbolic interactionism and cultural relativism?
