BagNewsSalon: Obama’s First 100 Days
This edition of the BAGnewsSalon examined nine Obama Administration images leading up to the 100-day mark. We hoped to consider various factors, including how the White House frames issues via pictures; what the images say about the character and capacities of Obama and his team; and whether the images evidence a new tone and attitude in the country now.
Discussants participating included professors Loret Steinberg (R.I.T.) and Nathan Stormer (U. of Maine); historian Michael Steinberg; photographer Brian Ulrich; Daryl Lang (PDN); David Schonauer (American Photo); host Michael Shaw; and moderator Cara Finnegan (U. of Illinois).
The BAGnewsSALON is an on-line, real-time examination of news and political images between invited guests andBNNreaders and visitors.
