Post #7: Feminist Perspective

Due by the usual class period on Wednesday, March 30th

*Please respond to blogging prompts in a new posting on your own blog. Please enumerate and entitle all of your blog postings in line with the posting assignment number and title.

Another method of rhetorical criticism you may choose to use in your Critical Essay #2 is the Feminist Perspective. For this blog post, you will respond to the following prompts and perform feminist criticism.

  1. For the artifact, you may locate an artifact that you could potentially analyze for your Critical Essay #2 and that is appropriate for feminist criticism (an artifact that somehow deals with issues of gender). Ideally, the full transcript or a portion of your selected artifact should be available online so that you can include its link in your posting. If not, find another way to describe the artifact and include in your posting examples from the artifact’s content (a YouTube video, etc). State the full title of the artifact and its genre (film, etc).
  2. Briefly describe the rhetorical situation of your artifact to inform your readers about its content.
  3. Briefly examine (describe and interpret) your selected artifact through one of the three feminist approaches discussed in our textbook, by supporting your analysis with some descriptions, summaries, or quotations from the artifact content. You will provide a full analysis (should you choose to develop this blog posting) in your Critical Essay #2. This posting should just present some preliminary observations.
  4. Based on your analysis, make a few statements to evaluate the potential implications of your selected artifact.
