Cultural Works

19Jan 2022 by

When you explore the concept of cultural works, you realize that you use, create, and observe cultural works in your everyday life without thinking much about it. In this discussion, you will analyze a cultural work from your daily life.
First, choose a modern-day cultural work from one of the following categories, one that is different from the one you selected in the Module Two discussion:

A TV show episode, movie, podcast, or song of your choice (for example: the song “Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, the movie Get Out, or an episode of the series Game of Thrones)
A painting, photograph, image from a social media post, or another work of art (for example: graffiti by the artist Banksy)
A brand, logo, or mascot (for example: Disney or the Nike “swoosh”)

Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.

For your initial post, address the following in a few paragraphs
(include the name of your cultural work in the title of your post):

What universal idea does your cultural work represent?
What does the cultural work say about the culture in which it was created?
Discuss how your own individual assumptions, beliefs, and values might shape your opinions of the cultural work selected.
