Learn to “read” places in ads… What does it tell the consumer about himself/herself? If the place is hard to get to, what does that say about the status of someone who can get there? Is “wildness” a characteristic we value in ourselves and if so, what products help us feel a bit wild? Is “wildness” somehow threatening and if so how can a product offer the promise of security?

Ads and conflicting ideals People generally seek status in society People also generally dream of dropping out or escaping from society Ads provide images that reconcile these conflicting desires How to get away from it all but not leave creature comforts behind How to feel like one has a link to a desired “elsewhere” even if one is tied to the desk

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
