Hybrid Assignment 02

Due by midnight Tuesday, September 8th (350-400 words).

Taylor (2014:50) argues that the fate of creative people, in the new economy, is to “exist in two incommensurable realms of value and be torn between them–on the one side, the purely economic activity associated with straightforward selling of goods or labor; on the other the fundamentally different, elevated forms of value we associate with art and culture.”   Your hybrid writing assignment this week is to describe these two realms and the challenges they pose for artists, teachers, activists and others who view their work as serving “the public good.”

Please note: Class participation and hybrid assignments account for 40% of your final grade.  If you do not complete the hybrid assignment you will be counted as absent for that day.
