Blog Assignment 1 (Barthes)
Due date: Feb 16
Length 500-600 words
For your blog post on Mythologies, choose one of Barthes’s essays that you would like to discuss in more detail.
The blog post should briefly explain (using quotations) a key idea from that essay. Then, you should apply that idea from the essay to a discussion of another cultural text of your choice (e.g., using “Wine and Milk” to talk about American beer advertisements, or “Soap Powders” to examine American detergent advertising or to jump off to another similar topic, such as using Barthes’s methodology to discuss the mythology of deodorant). You should be able to include images, links, and even video to your post if you wish.
