Hi All

Please note that as a matter of easy facilitation, your course reading packs will be given out in the lecture tomorrow, Thursday 21 Feb 08. For those of you ambling into the course as late as this (second week of term!), lecture times are as follows:

Monday: 12-20 to 13-05
Tuesday: 10:30 to 12-10
Thursday: 14:10 to 15:40

Since there is no Friday lecture, Thursdays double constitutes a lecture and not a tutorial. The blog now serves as a participatory feature of the course and replaces tutorial sessions. Please make an attempt to engage in the discussions both here and in class, as participation counts for 10% of your assessment! By sharing and learning from each other, we hope to really get into the idea of starting with ourselves, and our own biographies as a resource!

All the best..

what is beauty? well in my opinion it has to deal with ones personality rather than ones outer physical beauty. however, many people do not see it this way but rather look at ones physical appearances. in many indian communities one is seen as beautical if their complexion is very light. their features nor their personalities are taken into consideration. even their culture re- enforces this notion of beauty.

media on the other hand also teach their viewers that one is only seen as beautiful if they are a certain weight. even ones complexion is a mojor factor for one will never see an extremely dark model.

one is also regarded as a true women if she is small built of average height, if they do not meet up to this cretria, then they are regarded as musculin.

beauty should be in the eyes of the beholder rather than what meadia and culture dictates it to be.
