|Students are divided into 5 groups of 5. Upon evaluating the responses to the journals, next week’s discussion groups will be based on like-minded or interestingly contrasting points found in the online journal when attempting the questions. The groups in class will not have duplicates of the online journal groups about the same readings. Selected answers from the journal will be featured in Friday’s lecture.
1. Each member of the group should reply in a post, describing your interpretation of and differences between: The sex which is not one, Informe & Abject
After the Wednesday deadline, when postings are up, please take the time to discuss or respond to the other answers or distinguishing features your fellow group members described.
2. Each member of the group, post a suggestion of a media work from visual culture, or art work (please provide an attached JPG or URL reference) that illustrates or produces from the ideas in Kristeva’s Powers of Horror Approaching Abjection excerpt. Please describe how you chose the source, and how you saw it coincide with particular details.
