CLAM students will be posting several really cool blog entries (see links to the right) over the next few days. Some of these entries will allow the students to display their cultural-critical chops by way of analyzing media rhetorically. Students will discuss the persuasive forces behind billboards, movies, websites, video, tv, etc. in their host cultures.
Students will also blog with a focus on McDonald's as a global presence. How does McDonald's reflect the culture in different countries or in different areas of the US? How does McDonald's shape or change the culture in different countries or in different areas of the US?
You can find a summary of The McItaly Burger Uproar hear at The Week (a news digest).
Wow - talk about relevance to current events - CLAM students, you are on the bleeding edge of cultural happenings! Work out those rhetorical analyses with gusto and focus. Look at the McDonald's assignment with keen critical eyes. And do brilliant work!
