  • genre?
  • shape/form

// Molly Doane Discussion //
Climate change is cover for injustice
Art and anthropology deals with:
  • how we talk about these issues outside fo the academy?
  • how do we find ways of representing things we feel are important?
Frankfurt School of thought:
Capitalism bought off working class through cheap goods (cheap because the cost are externalized on the environment)
  • How do you critique capitalism in this context?
  • information vs advertising
  • Critical art becomes important (adbusters)
More radical scholarship now as opposed to before
  • Activist anthropology
  • working within own political practice
  • based on own commitments
