This is a 2 part assignment the first one is the portfolio I included the reading list that you should get the information from , and the second is a poster where you should choose one ( paratext ) and create a poster and presentation notes
So please do the two parts for me
– 2 minute Presentation notes
Portfolio: Exploring Paratexts
Your portfolio will measure learning outcomes 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. It counts toward 75% of your overall grade for this module. This exercise requires you to:
• • think and act creatively
• • read closely
• • apply and explain your knowledge
4. Analyse and evaluate the relationship between TV and film genres and the manner in which meaning is constructed for (and by) the spectator.
5. Contextualise approaches to genre study within their appropriate socio-cultural historical period.
6. Identify the economic, political and ideological implications of genre as an organising practice.
7. Consider the role and relevance of genre hybrids and the way in which genre exists on an everyday basis.
8. Research and articulate a complex argument in written form using the appropriate academic conventions.
You should produce and present an A2 poster which explores and analyses a paratext of your choice. It needs to demonstrate an understanding of how the paratext creates meaning
Further help, guidance and support for this portfolio will take place in the lecture and workshop sessions from weeks 7-12. There are also individual exercises and practical tasks on MyBeckett for you to work through in your own time.
