This is for my Introduction to rhetorical criticism class (COMM 3300) PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I ALREADY PAID A SHIT TON OF MONEY TO THIS SITE FOR A SHIT PAPER THAT DIDN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. PUT SOME OF YOUR OWN THOUGHT AND ANALYSIS INTO THE PAPER, THIS IS JUST MY GENERAL/OVERALL EXPLANATION: (sorry to be so blunt)
I already wrote the context section and literature review for this paper which adds up to be about 10 pages long. What I need for you to do is write the ANALYSIS SECTION of my paper. Here is my teacher’s definition of the analysis section: Apply relevant theories and critical methods to this case study using specific examples (i.e., speeches, publications, websites, videos, events, etc.) from the case. WHAT RHETORICAL STRATEGIES ARE BEING EMPLOYED? What is successful/unsuccessful? What effects does this have? Make an argument and back it up.
Ok, that being said, time for me to explain my topic better. Basically I am supposed to explain how the <wilderness> and outdoorsmanship has become a sort of product for consumers in the US. Going outdoors has become a popular trend and also a statement to society. In the paper, it is important for you to explain how the wilderness and outdoors man ship has become a successful product that Americans consume. Talk about how in America, as an individualistic (rather than pluralistic) society, Americans find it important to form subgroups and have a sense of "us" and "them". As a result, in the US many cling to belonging to the wild and being labeled as outdoorsy and "granola". This is their sense of identity. Americans often have an innate need to label themselves or self identify with a sub-group. Talk about how they accomplish this. They accomplish this in many ways. They dress a certain way (they wear patagonia, northface, mountain hardwear, chacos, wear caribeaners etc.), go to exotic places (Colorado, national parks, off the map), drive big trucks or sports utility vehicles (jeeps, trucks, fj cruiser) with stickers on the back, and often even advertise their "adventurousness" to the world (goPro’s, facebook, selfie stick, instagram, etc.). So basically we are explaining ways in how rhetorically, our western idea of the wilderness and outdoorsmanship has become a successful product for consumers to cling onto for a sense of identity. Maybe look at McGee’s ideograph and talk about how <wilderness> has become such an enigma in the US throughout history compared to other cultures where it is less of a trend. Talk about how the formation of national parks and the transcendentalist movement has made the <wilderness> out to be this separate entity apart from every day life that we have to go off the beaten path to interact with rather than something that surrounds us every day. Even though we’re surrounded by the wilderness a lot of the times in our every day life, the American idea of the great outdoors is often romanticized and thought of as somewhere out in the middle of nowhere. It has become thought of as this sublime/pristine paradise rather than something we see almost everyday. WRITE ABOUT THIS IN THE MOST LOGICAL ORDER not necessarily in the order that I explained my idea to you. And then tack on a bit of an opinionated section to all this. My opinion overall is that if these trends are working to get people outside more, then great. People need to interact with nature more. What bothers me is that sometimes people miss the whole point and do this for a sense of identity and live their lives through a camera lense rather than living in the moment and soaking in the great outdoors. Try your best to use rhetorical theories and analysis when writing this paper. AND PLEASE ASK ME IF MY TOPIC DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU BEFORE WRITING A PAPER THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.
