Tiffany Lanoix earned a Master's degree in Sociology at the University of California, Irvine in 2005. Currently, she is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Los Angeles Valley College where she also serves as faculty advisor for the Sexual Equality Club. We will be discussing the sociological idea of the social construction of reality, which is basically the idea that nothing has any inherent meaning. In other words, reality is dependent upon the socialization process, or the process by which a person learns their culture. Tiffany connects this concept to spirituality and religion by asserting that the world and the experience that a person wants to live in can be created in spite of their circumstances, since those circumstances only have the meaning that they are given. This show originally aired on 11/7/10. Contact Information: lanoixtr@lavc.edu
