Essay #3:  Cultural Analysis Essay
Similar to the published essays we have read, or will soon read, your third essay you will present a coherent, complex argument about an element of our culture. Not only do these published essays seek to investigate certain trends and issues, but they also attempt to explain why it is that recognizing these patterns or looking at something from a different perspective can change the way we think about the world. In short: Why is it important to see your chosen topic in a new way?
