Due: 9/23, 8 AM.
Post a link to an image that you think adds to an understanding of your thesis.
For example, say my thesis claimed The adoption of a third gender in the U.S. would reinforce, not weaken, what Morris calls the “gender binary.” [JUST an example, and not something I might actually argue–don’t let this affect your reading.] I might post this image: http://i.imgur.com/qO6aynA.jpg. To me, it has a thematic link to my thesis; it speaks to division and uniformity, which my thesis claims would have a negative effect on the perception of gender.
-Post a link to your image. If possible, please isolate the image (i.e. try not to link to a website with other images, as it might get confusing if we can’t tell which image you’re linking us to).
-DO NOT explain why you chose the image. Post ONLY the link and the thesis statement from your draft.
-Do your best to choose an image that has a thematic connection, not an explicit one. In other words, if you’re writing about gender, don’t post a picture of a man and a woman–the connection is too strong, and will lessen the amount of analysis your peers have to do. The connection shouldn’t seem overtly obvious!
Due: 9/25, 8 AM. [Note–because of the holidays, some students will do this post on Sunday evening.]
Respond to ONE of your peers’ images. Answer the question, How does is this image linked to the thesis statement. Do not comment on someone’s image if it has already been commented on. ~100 words, please!
