emailed discussion topics


Discussion question one:
Briefly, write about the persuasive and symbolic function of clothes, for
instance, in the realms of courtship, gender identity, class status, and
spiritual mystery.  Try giving an example for each category of how clothes
send a persuasive message about class, identity, and ethos.  How might
clothes send a coded message about one’s identity, or create an identity
through reverence and mystery? 

Discussion question two:
*Some people believe that newspapers should investigate the policies of
local government and the University. Others think newspapers should be more
supportive of the goals of our public institutions. Do you think a newspaper
should be more of a watchdog or more supportive?
