For class 25 (Th 12.5.19), discussion groups will map the varied institutions, particularly the Entertainment Industries, that contribute to rape culture/toxic masculinity.
This assignment is to do some initial brainstorming and brief reflective writing to generate some ideas to share in a discussion group.
- Use a computer or hand write on paper (8×11) to brainstorm/list all the entertainment industries that are somehow part of the power matrix that generates rape culture/toxic masculinity.
- Brainstorm/list other societal institutions that produce and reinforce rape culture.
- Freewrite reflections on how this system operates on a cultural-individual level
- Beliefs, values, everyday patterns/routines/rituals, how they are internalized.
- Personal-social cohort connections? How it plays out in everyday life?
- EI links
Note: If you’re not entirely clear on the above directions, use your intuition. There are no wrong answers.
