Here are questions to ask yourself as you read through each other’s papers:
- Does the paper have a title, thesis and blueprint along the lines of what we’ve discussed in class?
- Does this paper have a compelling thesis/blueprint?
- Is the paper clearly and logically organized from sentence to sentence and from paragraph to paragraph?
- Are all claims well supported with outside evidence, quotes etc.?
- Does the paper cite appropriate, scholarly sources?
- Is the paper clearly and artfully written?
- Does the paper need additional editing and/or proofreading?
Once again, I am asking you to provide a reading or interpretation of the work assigned to your group. Keeping in mind what I’ve recently lectured to you about in class about media studies, please read/navigate through your work and prepare a short, informal presentation to the class that answers the following questions:
- What is your assigned piece about?
- Which media (and/or hardware and/or software) is Campbell experimenting with? How does he get us to think about the affordances of these particular media? Does he work with or against the affordances of the media at hand?
- How and to what end is Campbell experimenting with language and with narrative in your piece?
Group 1: “Clearance”
Group 2: “The Dead Tower”
