Topic Struggle

July 14, 2008

Trying hard to break things about and map it out in some way of making sense!

politics:
– opinions
– social and voter demographics
– party associations
– activism
– campaign tactics
– identity politics

media:
– real news vs “fluff” news
– patterns in topic frequency
– supply vs demand of stories
– how news creates ever-changing tapestry of American image
– media ethics and bloggers > self-declared journalists

environment:
– effects of global warming
– public awareness
– sense of place
– creative conservation

oil dependancy issues:
– changes in social and urban anthropology
– global food crisis
– sense of place
– unemployment
– identity issues

self-surveillance:
– jeopardizing sense of public and private life
– social media pollution
– customizable identities
– information overload and the mental toll it creates

strength in narratives (i.e. this american life, post-secrets, etc)
– discrete stories/narratives with common thread
– affects of human condition
