UCirvine sociology discussion


The producers of culture (e.g. Cultural production) deliberately try to shape your understanding of cultural practices and products (e.g. think impression management on a macro scale). Take for example the company Apple- if you ask a lot of people about how they feel about Apple products you will get a range of answers beyond “they make iphones”.

Due Thursday night by 11:59pm before due date: For this week’s discussion post, post a photo capturing the social meanings of owning Apple products? Tell the class you how you think Apple want you to think or feel about their product.

For this post, try to post a pic of something different from what has already been posted. For example, if someone posts a picture of someone smiling big with a new iwatch, try to capture a different social characteristic.
