>>=== Habitus ===

MIT home page on 11 Nov 2016. MIT's response to Veteran's Day is more than just the image. It's in the selection and phasing of the campus news for that day. The overall response is part of MIT's habitus. MIT's home page is demonstrating the kind of social habits and values that are practiced at MIT. To the extent that these habits are actually practiced widely, the ethos is legitimate. To the extent that audience members identify with these habits and values - desire to share them or practice them - the appeal to ethos is successful. To the extent that audience member's don't wish to share the habits, the appeal to ethos is //still// successful. [[ | full sized image]]

==== For Tue 29 Nov ====
We have only two meetings left, so we're turning to some more sophisticated consideration of ethos and pathos. On Tuesday, I'll present on ethos. You'll be working in pairs with the concept of ethos in class on Tuesday, based on the questions on pp 248-9, and 249-50. You'll need to be prepared.

Michelle Thoft will present on Dec 6th.

**Read, Longaker, chap 8: Habit (Ethos Revisited)**, pp 232 - 250. Read and make notes. It is not a skimmable chapter, so give yourself time to read and ponder it.


==== For Tue 6 Dec ====
- Read, Longaker, chap 7: Affect: (Pathos Revisited), pp 208 - 231.

==== Tips and Suggestions ====
- The Overwrite warning. If you save a page, then use the back button rather than double-clicking to get back to editing, you might get an Overwrite warning in red. That only means the wiki is confused. Select all the text you're editing, copy it, then Cancel the save. After you save, see if the version is complete. It usually is. But if not, double-click to edit the page, select everything, then paste the version you have on the clipboard into the wiki and save.
- Use RecentlyCommented at the top of the page to check on FAQs.
