Hi–I forgot that I rearranged the syllabus a bit due to my conference, and the sparkers are sparking on Feb 13th–not next Thursday.
For next Thursday (no class on Monday–I will be away–but you should be reading), look at @sosadtoday and read Broder’s essays that she developed from her anonymous blog post (and I’ve also linked an article from The New Yorker). Choose a favorite tweet and essay to discuss.
For sparkers on art (broadly defined) in the age of social media:
What interests you about your choice?
How do they use social media or the internet to promote their art or to reflect upon it?
What questions does their art raise for you?
What questions do you want to discuss with the class?
