Week 6: Digital Activism

Tuesday, February 21 (Monday classes)

Assignment

  • Read Media Criticism, Chapter 10.
  • Watch The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology (watch with free trial here).
  • Read Internet Activism.
  • Write your next blog post as a form of digital activism related to Puerto Rico and/or the UPR (blog post, listicle, series of memes, hashtag performance, etc) as informed by depiction analysis (Chapter 9) and ideological critique (The Pervert’s Guide), from the perspective of your topic, if possible. If you can’t fit it into your blog focus, make this an independent work, using Google Docs (here’s how to publish it). Share in our Facebook group before class on Monday, February 27.
