For this week, in addition to reading and responding to the artist presentations that are being presented, please read the following and respond,

Frequently I will not post reflection questions or specific issues I would like you to address in the reading discussions.  I will ask that you consider all of the materials and the themes/ideas presented and reflect on how they resonate with you.  You can agree, disagree, empathize, or completely reject ideas, but the goal is to inspire thought and initiate a dialogue in class to further our understanding of the body in culture and in the arts.  Look for connections between the articles as well as how your classmates are considering them. Please always post thoughts concerning all of the materials provided.
