Over the last couple of weeks first year undergraduates on the Reading Cultures II: Ideas and Ideologies module have been posting visual postcards and videos of iconic American images that they've found in and around Norwich. They were asked to discuss what these images tell us about the United States? Which version of America do they represent? And how do we read these images from the UK?
The images and videos here are just a selection of the posts our students have put up. At the same time students from Temple University have been posting blog entries on how various American icons have been reconstituted and reconfigured to make certain points about American politics and culture. You can find all the posts from UEA and TU students here: http://americaniconstemeple.wordpress.com/
