For Monday

Yikes! You guys all took off so quickly that I didn’t get a chance to do any of the closing announcements that I really needed to get out there.

Here they are:

1. The first stage of the term paper assignment is due on Monday. The assignment itself is posted under Resources as a Word document, as well as being posted as a page on the blog. The link is up near “Syllabus.” Please read through that assignment ASAP and send me any questions you may have.

2. The reading for next time is Horkheimer & Adorno and Benjamin. Many of you will have read these essays before. Please read them again, and in particular with an eye toward what they’ve inherited from Marxist thought. (sigh) Adorno Arnold, Williams, and Geertz. The deleted instructions apply to Wednesday, not Monday. (I really am not with the program.)

3. I’m happy to take any lingering questions from this week’s reading and attempt to work them into a mini-lecture for Monday, but I need you to tell me what you need to know. So post your questions on the blog, or email them to me.

See you Monday, I really really really hope….
