1. In Panopto 3, we talk about concepts such as ‘gender’, sex, race and ethnicity and illustrate forms of marginalization related to each as seen in visual culture. Identify two examples, 1 discussed in Panopto 3 and the other discussed in your readings for DB2/Part 1: Then do the following: describe the image itself, narrative, and your own analyses of each choice. How do you feel your examples can affect viewers? Did you connect to any of the examples when listening/reading about each example? Why or why not? Make sure to use both your readings and panopto content to assist with your answers.
2. In Panopto 3 and your reading, ‘Bias and the Brain’ recent research related to what happens in the brain when seeing other people suffer/experience pain who are not from one’s own race, ethnicity, nationality etc. Name one thing you learned in reading the article. Can visual culture potentially change these biological reactions? According to Panopto 3, name 2 additional things that can potentially fight this tendency in the brain?
3. Watch the assigned video of Anil Seth, posted in our Module for weeks 5-7. Tie what Seth discusses to content in question 1 and 2 above. If Seth is correct and conscious reality is constructed, how can this be used to educate others about your own culture?
