Reading Culture: Contexts for Critical Reading and Writing
Diana George, John Trimbur
Longman, 2001 - Academic writing - 564 pages
Reading Culture is the original cultural studies-based reader. Now in its fourth edition, this widely used text continues to challenge students with provocative readings, images, writing assignments, and fieldwork projects. In addition to an updated case study of talk television, this edition of Reading Culture includes a second case study which draws on both print and internet resources to examine debates on the meaning and the consequences of the Columbine High School shootings. As with previous editions, Reading Culture continues to include instruction for reading and evaluating visual messages, for conducting micro-ethnographies, and for writing about the culture of everyday life.
