Honors 11: The Yes Men, cont. + Essay Editing/Work Time

We finished watching the clips from The Yes Men today in class and discussed, using the viewing guide to do so. We will watch a few clips from their second Yes Men doc, titled The Yes Men Fix the World tomorrow. We will then do some practice synthesis work with the Yes Men, Duncombe’s “Cultural Resistance Reader”, and this piece from The Baffler, a magazine that critiques “business culture and the culture business”, politics and culture, titled “Why Johnny Can’t Dissent” by editor/writer Thomas Frank from the collection titled Commodify Your Dissent. Please read/annotate as needed the first 5-6 pages for tomorrow. You will submit the completed viewing guide tomorrow.

We will continue essay work tomorrow as well. The first full draft of your essay is due in class on Thursday for points.
