This week, you were introduced to six analytical perspectives for analyzing media by author and theorist David Lodge from his book, Small World. These perspectives form the foundation for your Media Analysis Project. Over the next five weeks, you will analyze a visual work from any media (print, film, television, Internet), of your own choosing. If you choose television, feel free to focus on a specific series (not just one episode). If you choose the Internet focus on a particular website.
Your analysis must encompass all six perspectives. This will be a detailed analysis consisting of 6-8 written pages
Choose a topic on which to complete your Media Analysis Project (MAP). Your project can be on any media; print, photography, television, film, the Internet, etc. This topic you will explore in detail by using Lodge’s six perspectives. Choosing something in which you have a personal interest.
Submit your topic as a one paragraph written proposal. Explain not just what your topic is, but also why you chose it.
