Students are bombarded every day with media messages laden with rules: what makes our work valuable, our bodies ideal, our communities picture perfect. Acting Out Culture empowers students to use writing to speak back to their culture and question its rules. Featuring fresh readings by writers who lay bare and challenge the rules we live by, the second edition of Acting Out Culture gives students the tools they need to analyze and write critically about assumptions at the heart of cultural norms.
