This is where we’ll talk about the essay “Super Mom in a Box.” Sorry I’m a little later on this than I’d prefer, but it has been one of those “one thing after another” series of days.
The next few articles we’ll be reading/discussing (actually, it’s the last bits of reading for the class) are more of an academic bent– though I still think accessible– and specifically about various uses of social media. The idea here is to read and think about some of the scholarship that is out there about how social media works so you can start thinking about it for your end of the semester reflective projects.
This particular essay is about the writer’s (Lindsey Harding) complex relationship with Pinterest and her own identity as a woman and a mother. I know a couple of you are following Pinterest as one of your social medias this semester, but I don’t think you have to know a lot about Pinterest to get the hang of this piece.
