Modern spectacle event
The reading this week discusses spectacle events held by the nobility in Western Europe, particularly France and Spain. The concept of the spectacle event never left, and we are surrounded by many examples of such events in modern times. For this discussion, please share an event that fits into the definition of a spectacle. Make sure you describe your example event in detail, and point out how this event fits into the spectacle category.
You will need to post one time with your example of a modern spectacle event and post again in response to someone else. Please remember you are graded on both posts. Your response posts need to be engaging and go beyond just a few sentences stating things like “great point”, or “I agree with you”. This is a discussion forum, so think about it just like that, as a discussion. Simply agreeing with someone or liking their post does not set the stage for a discussion.
Overall this should be a fun topic, as there are many spectacle events happening around us. I am interested to see what examples you come up with.
