This project focuses on the assigned readings from Weeks 2 and 3. It is due by 11:55 pm ET on Sunday of Week 3.
Use as evidence primarily passages from the story or stories that you discuss.
The project should be focused on making a debatable claim about the text(s) in question; informational projects or projects consisting of summary are not appropriate. The claim should be supported with discussion of specific passages from the text(s) on which the project is focused.
Choose 1 of the following topics:
The Tragic Hero: In Oedipus Tyrannus, should we view Oedipus as tragic only, or can we find something heroic in his actions and end? Support your argument with events and lines from the play.
Being Human: Consider Oedipus’ attempts to outrun prophecy: what does Sophocles seem to be arguing about human potential and limitations? Support your argument with events and lines from the play.
Learning Culture from Literature: choose 1 poem by Li Bai, and analyze it for a picture of the culture in which Li Bai was writing. What is one piece of information about that culture that we can infer from the poem, and what does Li Bai seem to be saying about that information? Support your argument with passages from the poem you chose.
Shared Themes: Choose 1 poem by Li Bai, and identify in it a theme that you also can find in Oedipus Tyrannus. Compare and contrast the two texts’ treatment of the theme. Do they deal with that theme in a way that is more alike or different? Focus your thesis on arguing how the treatments are more similar/different, and support your argument with passages from the two readings.
Make your own topic: Create your own critical question to answer. If you choose this topic you must contact the instructor for approval by Thursday of Week 3. Project submissions with unapproved topics will be returned ungraded.
This project is not an essay, rather it is a multimedia presentation that should combine visuals and writing (think about 350-700 words for the writing, give or take). The writing can be in the animation/slides themselves, or it can be separate such as in the speaker’s notes or a Word document meant to accompany the presentation.
All aspects of the presentation should be your own impression and words, but the visuals can come from anywhere, so have fun with that Google Image search.

Note that all writing in the project should be original; the projects will be run through Turnitin upon submission, and all distinctive matching information caught by Turnitin must be formatted as a quotation. DO NOT copy-paste material without immediately marking it as a quotation and citing it. Any multimedia (art, music) inserted or linked in the presentation should also include full bibliographic information.
All projects should have:
A title slide.
MLA, APA, or Chicago citations/works cited page (for the images, music, etc, as no research is required).
The project’s text should be approximately 350-700 words
