Post-Subjective Ethics on *30 Rock*

In News on November 13, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Seminar participants intrigued by last week’s discussion of what we might have to call (for lack of a better term) “post-subjective ethics” in relation to contemporary practices of (ditto the previous parenthetical) “immaterial consumption,” may be interested in “Brooklyn Without Limits,” the episode of NBC’s 30 Rock that aired for the first time the following evening (stream it here). In it, main character Liz Lemon finds a pair of jeans that both complement her posterior and her values (“hand-made in the USA” by a company that pays a living wage and does not harm the environment). But is it too good to be true? Watch and see!
