Final Assignment
This assignment must be handed in as a hard copy by April 12 at 5 PM.
1. Description of the assignment:
Your final assignment consists of a two-part essay. In your essay you will
• precisely and succinctly address an account of printing technologies in modernity
• articulate your original response to such argument
• use visual analysis in order to support your response
2. Instructions for the essay:
Your response will consist of three sections.
1. In the first section, you will provide response to either of the following texts (choose
only one):
• Walter Benjamin, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproducibility” (1936).
• Christine Guth “Lifestyle Branding” Hokusai’s Great Wave (2015).
A critical response captures the argument of a reading, and explores its limits. What is the
author really trying to say in this essay? What is distinctive about her/his treatment of the
objects discussed?
2. In the second section, you will extend your response, and analyze three print works
discussed in this class. These should be examples that you feel address in some
capacity the issues you explored in the first section of the essay. Drawing from readings
and our class discussion, you will
• carry out a full visual analysis of the images;
• provide some historical context for the material;
• explain their relevance for the issues you identified in the first part of the essay.
3. In the third section, you will provide a conclusion for your essay. In addition to this,
please include any final comments that you would like to make about this course.
3. Formatting requirements:
Your response should be presented as a single extended essay (maximum ten pages long).
The essay will be divided accordingly into three clearly labeled sections.

response, and the capacity to carry out visual analysis and contextualization.

• ability to concisely and precisely present an argument,
• visual analysis and contextualization of print objects,
