Deconstructing Emma West's Tram Experience by Jay Knott (07/10/12)       ⇌ (Explination Behind Photo on Forum Main ?)       

A tale of two Emmas...

One Emma West is a researcher in Critical and Cultural Theory. Her forthcoming PhD. will be entitled 'The Highs and Lows of Modernism: A Cultural Deconstruction'. It will aim to "interrogate the high/middle/low (brow) culture divide, examining whether this trichotomy truly describes modern(ist) texts and practices, and considering new, more productive ways of refiguring the relationship between high, middle and low culture".

I wonder which of the three categories this Emma West would put the other Emma West in. She's the woman in the notorious 'My Tram Experience' video on Youtube, in which she objects to the black and Polish immigrants she feels are flooding the UK.
