Time: 08:00 pm

Time Zone: Eastern (US)

Join Dr. Patton as he shares effective strategies for teaching media criticism to students who are saturated by a techno-urban, image-dominated, word-resistant, “amused-to-death” pop culture landscape. Paul employs the metaphor of pop culture as an unrelenting “dance partner” and posits the question of moral and spiritual significance: Who’s leading whom in the dance? Co-author of Prophetically Incorrect (Brazos Press, 2010), Patton offers practical advice for helping students cultivate a healthy balance with this dance “partner.” This live presentation may be viewed by an individual or group of any size in a single feed.
