Readings Due 6/2

Machin - Chapter 5

1. If we can not explain why we consume a certain type of media, would it be considered to be part of our own personal cultural tool kit?

2. Just because Ethnographic research can not be repeated exactly over and over again it is considered somewhat unrelable?

Seiter - e-reserve

1. Why is it considered unusual for a man to watch soap operas? Are men not supposed to enjoy drama, just as much as women?

2. Why did the researcher feel that the men were akward and acting differently because she was an "accademic"? Maybe it was because she was a women. Maybe it was because of the uncomforable questioning environment. I thought it was perculier that she just assumed she were acting differently because of her status.
