1. (15 points) Please write a reflective essay addressing the following:
Four of the theorists/theories we covered in the second half of this course described how “reality” (or, in one case, hyperreality) is created: (i) Goffman (dramaturgy), (ii) Berger & Luckmann (Social Construction of Reality), (iii) Garfinkel (Ethnomethodology), and (iv) Baudrillard (hyperreality). Pick two of these theories/theorists to talk about. Using terms and concepts from the two theories/theorists you picked, explain how your reality (or hyperreality) is created every day. Make sure to explain it in terms of your own life, using examples from your own life. Then, after you have done this, make an argument as to which one of these two theories is better in terms of understanding and explaining your life experiences, and why it is better. Use as many relevant terms and concepts from the course to answer your question as possible.
Your essay answer should be at least 600 words long.
