Please post your discussion questions for Thursday's class on the "Aria" and "The Achievement of Desire" chapters of Hunger of Memory here. Make sure to read over your classmates' questions before you come to class.
This question came up during a recent discussion, so I thought you might be interested in some research done on the topic of how our brains are adapting to technology in relation to reading: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/serious-reading-takes-a-hit-from-online-scanning-and-skimming-researchers-say/2014/04/06/088028d2-b5d2-11e3-b899-20667de76985_story.html?tid=sm_fb
Respond to this post with a resource you found related to Fahrenheit 451. If possible, find something that relates to a specific theme, moment, character, or plotline in the book. Say what the resource is about and how you found it.
For class on 1/28, reply to this post with a comment containing a song suggestion for us to explicate in class next week. Try to find something relevant that has to do with influence (either as a theme within the song, or as how society might be influenced by the song) and/or desire.
