Today's class began with a short, in-class writing assignment:
Based on your reading of the Introduction to Reading Pop Culture, describe your interaction with pop culture on a typical day.
If you missed class, please feel free to type this up and turn it in tomorrow. But try to spend no more than 15 minutes on it. We'll discuss the purpose of this short assignment, in class, when I hand these back.
As usual, keep up with Dracula according to our syllabus. Also, for tomorrow, please also read "Why Vampires Never Die" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan in RPC. We'll begin discussing it in class tomorrow. However, for Friday, please post about the article explaining how you see del Toro and Hogan relating to Steven King and Eric Camarillo's pieces. Do you essentially see them agreeing, disagreeing, or something in between, with one another? Please provide some evidence to support these claims.
Since we've already discussed King and Camarillo and will be discussing del Toro and Hogan in class, this should be a pretty strong post--feel free to pull from our classroom discussion here.
Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
