The Image/ Kpop Assignment (HUM415)

Choose one of the following prompts. Be advised, per Cremin, that while a choice my imply some degree of agency it does not necessarily mean that you are free.

1. Curate a Kpop video and analyze it as a symptom of/ response to the culture of contemporary capitalism. You should not, obviously, use a video we’ve already discussed in class. Use formal terms taken from the Lenos/Ryan pdf.

2. Create or curate an image that represents global capitalism, either some specific facet of this socio-economic system or in its totality (which is probably impossible but your effort might be really interesting). Explain why this image is an appropriate visualization of capitalism in a compelling, cogent, and informed fashion.

Due 11/20 by 8 pm. No late submissions.
