This part of my web site is intended to accompany some of my blog posts concerning my anthropological responses to what I name here “the Corona epoch.” It will also complement the course I teach in the Fall.

The course will move through classical analytic issues about culture and social structure towards an attention to what applied anthropologists of education might contribute to public policy.
