Aims / goals of the anthology:
[to be filled in once you all have posted on your individual blogs] = )
fyi, i assigned a collective reading for a number of reasons:
1 - the book is too expensive to have you all buy
2 - the book is thick and i didn't want to spend weeks on what i slotted one week (meaning: the topic of feminist interventions in photography)
3 - we each see what it feels like to have to share w/our peers; we must rely on each other, and trust the we each have engaged the assignment, and can be trustworthy sources of info in class discussions
4 - we can all only know, in part (we know only what we've read). after hearing the presentations, we still only know a bit more of the text, and our information is mediated through someone else's reading and understanding. even when we put the pieces together, our parts don't fully make a whole.
5 - we all have to be accountable to each other; no one can drop "the ball" if we are all to learn
I could keep going but I won't...
Just know I'm reading your blogs...
