For MUH277 Students Only:
Your blog assignment this week is to take one of the essays from Barthes’ Mythologies that we read this week (pages 11-57), and use that essay as a jumping off point for your own analysis. You might, for example, use the “Soap Powders” essay to write an analysis of one of the advertisements you posted as an example for Monday’s class, or you might, if you wish, choose one of the other essays (such as the one on “Wrestling”) as the starting point for your analysis.
The finished post should be posted by the beginning of class on Monday. The post should be in the 400-500 words range in length.
