I am reading "rise of the image culture: Re-Imagining the American Dream" by Elizabeth Thoman.

The link to the article can be found by googling "rise of the image culture"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow!...I must have erased it when I deleted the link. Sorry about that.

    I am having an extremely difficult time in determining the thesis of the article.

  • English -

    I believe the thesis is stated at the end of the introduction:

    "But the consumer culture as we know it could never have emerged without the invention of the camera and the eventual mass-production of media images it made possible."

    Thank you Ms. Sue. I was really thinking that was it but I wasn't 100% sure as it did not have quite the punch I'm used to seeing for thesis.

    Thank you again.

    I know -- but I think that's the author's point. And she reiterates it in the last couple of sentences.
