Primary Instructor:

This class will encourage you to form a healthy habit of questioning your relationship to the stuff of popular culture: advertisements, the Internet, television, movies, fashion, etc. And as good writing often begins with a good question, this attitude of inquiry will also be the basis of our approach to writing. While we wrestle with the less familiar topics of college academic writing, such as invention, rhetoric, audience, persuasion and citing sources, you will also be asked to question your writing habits as you develop methods of creating complex arguments based on the kind of sophisticated analysis expected in college. Though the topics will be familiar, ranging from diesel jeans to music mash-ups, the work will be challenging and will require you to expand your sense of analysis and argumentation in demanding ways. Over the course of the term, you will write four main essays, each of which will be workshopped, revised, and turned in for a final grade. In keeping with the art and writing mission of Alice Lloyd, we will also spend part of the class examining contemporary art that reflects, critiques, or makes use of popular culture—art that blurs the line between art and life. The course will culminate in the creation of your own cutting edge art project, and the final essay will be an academic essay that analyzes your project alongside an analysis pop culture and art-related topics of your choosing.
