Robertson Quoted on Patriotic Kitsch

Linda Robertson, professor of rhetoric, was quoted in the March 29 article titled “Patriotic: Kitsch is 'a way of reducing the enormity of war'” in the Oregonian. The article described examples of kitsch products decorated in patriotic symbols. Robertson said kitsch is a way of buffering oneself from emotion, reducing the enormity of war.
