A Critique of American Eagle’s “Future Together! Jeans Forever!” Campaign

For their final project inĀ FG212/RM200/FM206 Critical Media Studies (Block C 2021), Tess Greenhaw, Nghi Lam, and Julissa Torres critiqued print and audiovisual media from American Eagle’s “Future Together! Jeans Forever!” campaign, focusing especially on the campaign’s ageism, ableism, and classism. For the new media creation portion of their project, they created a new print advertisement and digital commercial, carefully acknowledging their own limitations regarding colorism, gender roles, the gender binary, and ableism during their in-class presentation.
