Major Assignment: Propaganda Analysis of Literary Work

Due February 17, 2011

For this assignment, I would like you to provide a close reading of the propagand value of a literary work (possibly literature).  The point here should be to look at how literature sells a particular American Enemy to a more literary audience.  Your analysis here should be centered on the effectiveness of the stereotypes and assumptions reinforced by the literature.  Ultimately, you should provide a close reading of how that propaganda is produced and an explanation as to why it is effective.

This assignment should be 5 pages in length.  It is worth 15% of your grade.
