“Through culture, we become specific people, living in specific times and places. Culture gets under our skin. It becomes comfortable–second nature to us. That specificity makes encounters with other cultures foreign and strange–they don’t eat like us or talk like us. But they too have culture. Culture as Comfort examines this human alchemy, how culture makes us who we are, and how we can harness these insights to become more comfortable not only in our own culture but across the many cultures we encounter in today’s globalized world.” — Daniel Lende, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of South Florida.
