WRD360: Word on the Street: The Rhetoric of Everyday Texts Rotating Header Image

Everyday Texts Course Project

Possible course projects:

  • Everyday Text Collection & Interview Project — the one we ditched in order to work on the everyday texts of campus sexual assault project: drawing on your own resources, people, and connections, compose an ethnographic project that explores everyday texts in a professional, workplace, creative, activist, or community environment. Include examples, field notes, and analysis. 
  • What is the value of studying everyday texts?
  • An image ecology project
  • Sound as an everyday text?
  • The semiotics of everyday texts
  • Focus on an issue or topic that’s important and meaningful to you, as we did with your sexual assault projects

We’ll negotiate the length and scope both as a class and individually, but assume for starters a conventional 12-20 page upper division term project.
