Thursday Reflection, Week 8

November 22, 2006

Our discussion about some of the books we read for class was helpful.  I enjoyed hearing what others valued about the readings and the time we had to critique the authors’ perspectives. One topic that struck me in particular was the discussion about some of the tactics suggested in the book Culture Jam that were reactionary and did not seem to have a clear redemptive purpose. Though I had not thought through this in great detail prior to the class, I resonated with the concerns and questions that people brought up about these sort of strategies that focus on being against an industry, practice or ideology but do not make attempts to support a positive alternative of some sort.
