Week 10 – Monday

I was struggling a great deal today with the cycle of cultural studies that we focus on: producers, texts, consumers/audience, and everyday life. It seems that our cultural identity is defined by these categories, that our cultural subjectivity has been reduced to our roles in these categories. And yet as people made in the image of God, our identity would seemingly lie elsewhere, established by a different means in a different culture. I don’t want to be dismissive or throw out the baby with the bath water, but I feel constrained by the cycle itself. Further, at what point (if at all) do we look at this cycle of cultural studies through a lens of the economics of God?
