In a Blog Post demonstrate contestation or argument by producing a compare and contrast table or use an online mind map generator. Consider one idea and refer to visual texts and authors you intend discussing in your essay.
- List a key idea, concern, or issue which might be contestable.
- Why is it important?
- What relevant visual text/s will you refer to around the idea? Or what visual texts will you compare and contrast?
- What authors will you refer to? Consider written texts–by Mirzoeff and others, video presentations, podcasts, and online feeds and discussions located from last weeks I/S.
List the different author’s viewpoints, perspectives on the idea or issue? What does each say? (refer to what they say not what you think they say).
5. What is their justification and evidence for their take on the idea or issue?
(Cite all source material–in-text citations and bibliographic citations: MLA captions; MLA in-text referencing for online sources, lecture presentations, video presentation).
Reflect on how you might work contestation or different perspectives into your essay?
This can help create a contrast to the ideas Mirzeoff states in the chapter and this can also help to create perspective on the topic. This can help to understand how identity is represented and what can effect this when people are creating visual texts. Identity can be influenced by may things and that it can effect their overall visual text construction.
