First blog: introduce yourself

Due Friday September 1. If you are a new member joining the class during the add/drop period, your introductory blog will be due by the end of the week in which you join us.

Write a blog post that includes the following:

1. A paragraph introducing yourself in the context of this class. What matters to you, what keeps you up at night, what can you talk about for hours on end?  What are you hoping a class on media, culture, and identity might give you a chance to explore more deeply? Explore the schedule and see what’s on the menu; is there something you are particularly interested in?

2. Find an image, video, or link to show us something in the realm of media, culture, and identity (defined however you want) that matters to you. Make sure to embed the image or video in your post, and to link back to where you found it (with a HTML link coded correctly, not just a pasted URL). Explain what you have chosen and why you have chosen it.
