Gabrielle Whitfield replied to Elizabeth Hunt's discussion Day 4 Morning Reflection in the group History through the senses

"I really enjoyed doing the magazine reflection. Even though I read magazines all the time (a guilty vice), I have never analyzed them in that way. The magazines were stunningly biased in terms of gender, race, economics. The values were very…"

Gabrielle Whitfield replied to Jake Peterson's discussion Morning reflection in the group History through the senses

Gabrielle Whitfield replied to Elizabeth Hunt's discussion Day 1 Article Review in the group History through the senses
