Cultural Artifact Criticism Paper

Cultural Artifact Criticism Paper

Cultural Artifact Criticism Paper Objective: The purpose of this assignment is to advance your understanding of communication criticism, continue practical writing skills and persuasive arguments and to think critically about an artifact.

Assignment: Pick any cultural artifact that addresses political, cultural or social issue(s) as a main theme. Review the artifact several times and conduct any background research needed.  Then, write a 4-5page paper (12 pt font and 1” margins) analyzing your artifact. The paper should address Aristotle and Bitzer’s points of persuasive to include: location of artifact (where does the audience see/find the artifact), intended and unintended audience, creator, ethos, pathos, logos, exigence, constraints, and cultural significance, Finally, this paper must address how this analysis is meaningful (how does this analysis have meaning in the real world?).  This paper should set light in great detail on a societal issue and should therefore, advance the “societal conversation” about this cultural artifact and larger societal issue. This paper will include an introduction (summary of artifact and thesis), review of the points of consideration (listed above), and conclusion (why this analysis is meaningful).

Requirements:

  • Appropriate artifact with cultural implications
  • 4-5 pagedetailed analysis—12pt New Roman Font and 1” margins
  • 5-7 credible sources
  • APA style
  • Writing that uses the same tenants of persuasion that we have discussed all semester
  • Proper grammar, spelling and syntax
  • APA abstract (is not included in the 4-5 pages required)
  • APA title page (is not included in the 4-5 pages required) Cultural Artifact Criticism Paper
