During the snowstorms of 2015, you may have missed two interesting articles on culture, film and television. I am posting links here because both stories relate to topics we have recently discussed in class.
The Huffington Post.com story examines a paradox. Chinese education authorities have launched a campaign to curb the teaching of Western values while at the same time Chinese audiences freely attend Hollywood films that contain messages conveying those same values. Can you relate this example to our discussions of Electronic Colonialism and World Systems theory? Note the authors of the piece.
