  1. » Project 2   Part 1 — last group task:

    • pro­duce col­lab­o­ra­tive “Prob­lem Emblem” for social-media account and for net­work circulation

      Cre­ate 1 orig­i­nal/composite image, to be cir­cu­lated
      — “rhetor­i­cal veloc­ity”: able to be remixed?
      — Apply “meme logic” stud­ied
      —— apply ideas from Exer­cise 3 (and “cul­tural relay/s” notes)
      —— explain ratio­nale (briefly) in Poet­ics (indi­vid­u­ally, for Part 2)

    • Group’s “logo” for Emer­A­gency con­sult­ing per­spec­tive? (mes­sage, per­spec­tive)
      — include, to some extent, this view…
      (ideas for how overt?)
      — include/feature prob­lem/issue in emblem, for net­work
      (for “par­tic­i­pa­tory civics,” “pub­lic ped­a­gogy,” pro­mot­ing engage­ment, etc…)

      → discuss/propose in class / group dis­cus­sion how best, and sev­eral ways, to do this col­lab­o­ra­tively
      (from all our study and your observations/insights thus far)
