After watching the film “The Devil’s Playground,” consider the readings from the last two weeks. Did anything you see represent ideas of Durkheim? How so? Consider answering the following questions:
In this case, how does religion influence moral behavior in society?
What would you say the manifest and latent functions of rumspringa are?
Think back to the writings of Garfinkle. What ideas are communicated indirectly with this tradition?
How is reality constructed among the Amish?
Can you identify nonhuman actors in this film? What are they and how do they mix with the Amish?
