Greetings 180.95 2007:
The bell has rung, Round 2 of the Global Mediafest has officially commenced, and if you want to get into the ring, you need to post your read of any single article from the front-page (C1) of the Business Section of the New York Times, 22 January 2007. Your response (due next Tuesday) should:
a) identify relevance to Global Media (what it is)
b) show how a particular technology of representation produces a social, cultural, economic, political, or other effect (how it works)
c) demonstrate what you bring to the table (brio or bio)
To assist you in this assignment, the paper is posted outside room 205. Watson Institute, 111 Thayer. I'm 2 doors down if you have pertinent and pressing questions. If you prefer the e-versions, they can be found at:
