Good Evening Everyone! So, I 'm in the mood to reflect on some of Stuart Halls idea's that we went over in class on Wednesday. First, did anyone realize that Hall was born in 1932, making most of his dent on sociology and hegemonic studies that of the 50's? I feel like the timeline of articles like this really makes an impact on our thoughts. Mainly because, I feel that It's really interesting that some of the points he made are still issues that we deal with today as a modern society. I also feel that its quite interesting how he brings about this idea of heirarchy where some of us wish to operate within the framework of producers, and those who are in higher social statuses. I also think, at the other end of the spectrum, how weird it is for some to feel totally immune to the messages that come across subliminally in our media. I'm actually suprised that this is a category becuase I didnt think it was possible for people to look the other way on such sneaky media tactics...
