A Working-Class Christmas Story Christmas
Play • 32 min

"I don't love economic exploitation, but I do love Christmas and Christmas movies. They work to sell me stuff and ideology, but they also critique commercialism and exploitation. See what subversive messages you can find in a holiday classic. I triple dog dare you!"
That’s Kathy M. Newman, a frequent guest here on Labor Goes to The Movies; Kathy’s an associate professor of literary and cultural studies at Carnegie Mellon University, where she writes about radio, television, and contemporary media. Our discussion today is based on her terrific article A Working-Class Christmas Story Christmas posted this week on the Working-Class Perspectives blog.
