week 6

Describe an embarrassing moment you’ve experienced (don’t be shy – we’ve all had them!).  What were the circumstances?  What was the identity you were trying to present?  How did the attempt to claim this identity fail?  What did you do to try to overcome the embarrassment?  What did the witnesses to the embarrassing incident do?  Share your experience, framing your response in the key sociological terminology from the Newman chapter.
