Course- Eng 110
You are required to search for and examine scholarly sources outside of the course texts to both deepen and broaden your knowledge on these subjects.
Roland Barthes writes that, in myth, the signifier is arbitrary. Write an essay that explores this idea looking at a case study from popular culture (advertisements, slogans, logos, films, TV shows, political campaigns, etc.); consider what is being said to the viewer via the language of myth.
Students must use two academic journal articles, which are essays written by scholars for peer-reviewed journals. Dictionaries, encyclopedias, newspaper and magazine articles, blog entries, book reviews, documentaries, and textbooks are not academic journal articles. You can use these kinds of sources but they do not count as academic journal articles. You can use Google Scholar to search for journal articles.
- Paper (10%)
This part of the assignment will require you to analyse and discuss your topic; it is not just a presentation of facts and evidence. The paper should be 1500-2000 words in length and must follow MLA formatting and citation guidelines throughout. The final paper must also contain the following elements:
An introduction, conclusion, and clearly identifiable thesis statement
Main discussion section: 4-7 paragraphs of evidence, analysis, examples, etc.
MLA style bibliography that includes a minimum of 4 sources. At least 2 of these sources must be academic/scholarly in nature and each source must be cited at least once in the body of the paper.
PLEASE NOTE: No more than 30% of your paper may be another’s referenced works or ideas. If your paper simply reassembles sources from elsewhere without the addition of your own thoughts, then this constitutes a breach of academic honesty/integrity and could result in a grade of 0 on the assignment.
