Writer Profile: Context/Audience/ Influence (30%): For the final project, you are asked to select one author from the Contemporary Section. For this assignment, you will shape a research based profile about the writer’s context, audience and influence. For each of these sections, you should write 2-3 pages for a total paper ranging from 6-9 pages. The author you chose should be someone whose work lingers with you. Your paper should address the following:
Context:What is the autobiographical and extra-literary context of this writer’s life and work? How did personal, historical and social factors influence the production and reception of their work? Directly citing the writer’s work: How did these factors impact their literary texts?
Audience: Drawing from historical insights and your own analysis of the author’s work what was the writer’s audience? What type of community of readers did they imagine? Was the author in conversation with other writers? How?
Influence: Through both close reading of their work and engagement with their social context, describe the writer’s contributions to black intellectual traditions, literature and/or poetics?
