"Sut Jhally's lecture on advertising is a passionate and provocative call for the industry to rethink its destructive strategies in the name of capitalist "progress." His lectures and films are a unique example of criticism that might be called a postmodernism of resistance. Sut Jhally is a contemporary David who dares to take on a Goliath -- the media which have too much power in shaping our lives and our political choices."
Joan del Plato, Professor, Simon's Rock College
"Sut Jhally engages his audiences in critical thinking. By challenging assumptions, he dispels myths surrounding race, explores America's discomfort with class, and reveals the underpinnings of gender. Time spent with Sut is time well spent. He broadens our minds, engages our senses, and ultimately broadens the lens through which we view society and culture."
Zinta Konrad, Professor, College of Dupage
"Students and faculty have been talking about Prof. Jhally's presentation ever since he visited us. Already known on campus through his earlier work, he managed to pack a large lecture hall on a Friday afternoon and deliver a talk that engaged everyone from professors to first year students. He was accessible, sophisticated, and left us all with a new way of seeing the media and the world around us. The discussion of media, gender, and masculinity at our campus was raised to a higher level."
Tom Streeter, Professor, University of Vermont
"A compelling speaker, Sut Jhally pulls into focus some of the most important issues defining the U.S. and its place in the world. Whether speaking about media representations of women or African Americans or about the links between advertising, capitalism, the environment, community responsibility and individualism, Professor Jhally's analyses are bold, lucid, provocative and uncompromising. They invite discussion and action."
Professor Jan Welsch, Western Illinois University
"Dr. Jhally is extraordinarily gifted at pinpointing issues and topics which are of critical importance to college students today. Through his films, lectures and informal interactions with students, he is able prompt them to question normative assumptions, connect their learning to their own lives, and inspire them to take action toward social justice. His lectures are lively, interactive, visually and intellectually stimulating and--above all--lastingly memorable. If you want someone to make a major impact and to keep students and faculty thinking and discussing the lecture for weeks afterwards, invite Sut Jhally to your campus! His thought-provoking and dynamic lectures will be transformative for all involved"
