Reflection Questions
  • What is postmodernism, and how does it relate to modernity, to which it is claimed to be the successor?


  • Is postmodernism a culture?


  • Do you see any relationship between the “AIDS epidemic” and modern or postmodern cultures? What significance do HIV and AIDS have for cross-cultural workers?
