This week we’re going to read a few short things….about wrestling??? And then watch a video:
First, three pages from Jean Baudrilliard, called The Precession of Simulacra.
Second, six pages from Roland Barthes The World of Wrestling.
Third, six more pages from Jean Baudrilliard on The Strategy of the Real.
Next, a 13 minute long video on Kayfabe.
Also for extra credit I suggest reading this not particularly interesting article called Is Everything Wrestling?
