Hello Music Industry students,
A reminder for those who were in class last week, and a greeting to those of you who just joined us.
We will NOT be meeting in class this Thursday as I have a conflict out of town. Instead, you will be watching the film Paris is Burning by Jennie Livingston. A link to a streaming version of the film is provided on Blackboard– you can also access a DVD copy on reserve in the library.
After watching the film, write a short response. The ideal response will reflect not only on the film, but also on some of the questions regarding subcultures that are raised by the readings due next week (9/8). All our readings are available on Blackboard.
Your response can be typed and submitted in class on 9/8 OR you can post it on our class blog. See the sidebar for links to our discussion groups. If you missed the instructions for logging on, we’ll review this in class next week– just bring a printed copy of your response.
In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you next Thursday.
