Researched Essay Assignment

Write a paper in which you engage in a close textual analysis of the visual text you chose.  The purpose of your close textual analysis is to develop a paper that thoroughly answers this question: What messages or ideas about social norms, gender or racial/ethnic identity, or stereotypes are embedded within this text beyond the most obvious stated, intended messages?
