Title: Exploring Evolved Teaching Perspectives in Geographically Insulated Canada

Abstract: Canada has grown from a more innocent time when our small-town culture was the essence of our country, to a time when the cybernetic era of advertising automatically decontextualizes the advertising feedback loop (Hayles, 2010) and the sophisticated tools of psychology, blended with the science of mass-consumer culture, creates marketing stereotypes by the million (Leetaru,2019). The modern hyper-personalized advertising system may have become the economic engine and lifeblood of the modern digital world, but it is built upon a foundation of bias and discrimination based on harmful, manufactured stereotypes (2019). The notions to consider when reading this literature review are not about how consumerism affects modern society through trends in capitalism; the notions are the backdrop to a story which has yet to be learned or told. Further, the essence of those raised in small-town-Canada has changed in the searing light of big data, the meta-science of buyer’s psychology, and corporatized consumerism; this paper is a map of where we were.

Although this literature review, research proposal, and the roots of its author all drive toward a consideration of the people outside of the promotional silos of corporate business and government, there exist few statistics, surveys, or introspective analyses witch accurately relay the experiential consequences of modern promotions through television, advertising, movies, music, and the Internet (recognisable through the newly coined acronym TAMMI throughout this paper) on rural learners. The old adage “It’s just business” has done and continues to do much harm; the nature of this harm must be explored.
