    Leyli,

    I love this! And I love that you’re going the name route, as we discussed in class — well done!

    On the subject of names, it’s typically considered proper form to refer to an author or scholar by her […]

    Nagat,

    This is super — I love the series of questions you’re asking, and your connection to Hamlet is wonderful!

    I’d encourage you to really delve deeper into the quote you’re citing: don’t just let it […]

    Rinchen,

    This is the kind of intro work I think you can integrate into your rough draft really effectively! Just make sure you’re being very specific with your textual evidence with every claim you make!! I’m […]

    Rinchen,

    This is super intriguing!!! I’m really into your topic, as I think you know from our conversations. I’d encourage you, as you move forward, to prioritize your own voice. Right now, you open with a […]

    Jayson,

    I’m soooo intrigued by your questions! You might want to rephrase as, “what impact does this disorientation have on the audience, and how does that impact Iizuka’s theme?” I think that might help you […]

    Davaughn,

    What a powerful beginning!

    I’m seeing tension that has the potential to be very rich and generative between your claim that Anon has “identity issues” and your claim that people like Calista and […]

  • Oooh no, I’m excited but I can’t open the link! Try again? 🙂

    Ricardo,

    You always bring such a unique and important perspective to your pieces: no one else in the class has spoken extensively about how many different types of people Anon comes across, and I think that’s […]

    David,

    This is the beginning of what is sure to be a super insightful piece! I love that you’re calling attention to the shroud — It would be great if you can contextualize the article by Chen a little bit […]

    Jayson,

    I know we talked about this in class last week, but like I said, you’ve done a great job here. I love that you’re calling attention to her audience; given what she obscured and what she revealed about […]

    Nagi,

    Oooh, Nagi, I absolutely love the phrasing you have: that “the use of food in the play… was used mostly as [a] source of persuading” — so amazing to point out food as persuasion and coercion. If you […]

    Farah,

    I’m so happy to read that you watched the performance to help you understand — as we discussed in class today, this was often a deliberately disorienting play, and many of your classmates also had to […]

  • Totally feel you on the not being excited part — understandable! I’m hopeful, though, that we can have some fun on this project, you know? And, as long as you keep up with the due dates on the assignment sheet, […]

    David,

    I like how Naja can communicate iwth Anon, too. And, I’m interested in hearing more of your thoughts about social and environmental influences on personality — it’s definitely something that would have […]

    LA,

    Wow — what a phrase — “getting in the shoes of a spiritual immigrant.” I’m intrigued and would love to know more about your thoughts on this and also about the “partial romance” you’re talking about — […]

    Davaughn,

    You’re doing fabulous work here — I love the way you’re calling attention to both the confusion we were discussing in class today (is Naja a goddess or nah??) and to the Eurocentrism and white […]

    Assignment # 2 — Research Essay Analyzing Anon(ymous)

    We do research every day: when we hear a snippet of a new song by our favorite artist, we look it up; when we watch a TV show and recognize an actress but […]

    Ricardo,

    Well done: I’m excited by this start and how you’re integrating your own narrative with Lyiscott’s words!

    When you quote her in the first paragraph, I’d like to see you pick it apart more — why […]
