Using the observation and notes that you made at the museum or gallery that you visited, write up a 4-5 (double-spaced) interpretative essay using Discourse Analysis 1 or 2 or Psychoanalysis as your methodological framework. Follow the guidelines and explanations for these visual methodologies as detailed by Gillian Rose in her book. Use specific examples from your visit. You must focus on the visual aspects of your museum 0r gallery experience (should be obvious, but just a reminder). Match your methodological approach to the visual materials you encountered and, by extension, to the theoretical basis for each methodology. You may include visual data – drawings, photos, videos and such – but the write up must equal 4-5 pages of text. Email me if you have any questions about my expectations.
Paper due by 6pm Wednesday April 3. Please email it to me as a PDF file entitled yourlastname.pdf. You must follow MLA style in your paper.
