*We’ll continue to use this space to discuss the novel. You should make one initial comment on chapters 10-18 by W 3/1 + two additional comments by F 3/3.
We’re extending our discussion of Brave New World to the OpenLab, to dig even deeper into the text.
Initial comments are due by W 2/22, and then a minimum of two additional comments by F 2/24. A friendly reminder that, in addition to posting your own comment(s), you are responsible for checking back in and reading through the whole discussion, prior to each class. This “discussion” is part of the required reading for the course.
Feel free to pick up on something we discussed in class, bring in aspects of the text we didn’t get to, raise questions, offer excerpts/analysis, provide connections to our contemporary world (references & links to other texts articles, songs, videos, etc. would be great, but remember to keep your discussion grounded in the novel), raise–& take a shot at answering!–big existential questions raised by the text (e.g., can happiness be “real” if it is manufacturing chemically?), or anything else relevant. The goal is conversation that will lead to continued close reading/understanding of the text
