DIY Textual Analysis

Here’s your chance to take the theory we’ve been discussing and apply it to the media text of your choice. You can analyze a film, television series, video game, online interface, or digital text. Apply at least two of the theoretical readings we’ve read so far to your text of choice, performing a substantive analysis, five pages in length. Be sure to cite your sources (both the theoretical sources and any additional primary or secondary sources you seek out) using MLA formatting.

[If you’re interested in pursuing your DIY Textual Analysis in a non-traditional format, for example either as a video essay or a hypertext essay, please feel free to talk over the possibilities with me.]
