My New Favorite Ring

This is my new favorite ring my mother brought me from Cuba. And just in time for the discussion about Cuba I’m starting in my Spanish class.

Isn’t it cool? We will be able to discuss the commodification of famous revolutionaries and what this process tells us.

We will also be watching a seemingly innocuous Cuban film about kids who travel across the country and unpacking the ideological message this innocent film carries.

And some people say that language classes cannot be fun!

  1. I love rings too! I like that mushroomy looking ring on your pinky. What is it? By the way, I think that it’s an excellent idea to talk about the commidification of revoloutionaries. You classes sound so interesting. 🙂


  2. There’s going to be a talk on the commodification of the Che at the upcoming LASA meeting. Apparently that picture is the most reproduced image in the world (or something like that).
