SECOND WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT Choose one or two comics (comic books or newspaper funnies) and analyze the images of the American family they contain. (If you are unfamiliar with this genre, also known as cartoons, see us.) What can you conclude about the meaning of “family” from these images? You will base your conclusions on your description, analysis, and interpretation of the data contained in the material you collect. Of course, some comics will provide more information than others. Dennis the Menace is more about family than The Far Side. It’s fine to use any kind of comics—you’ll just need more examples of some kinds of comics to get an adequate amount of data. You may use comics that appear in strips or ones that use only one frame. A highly recommended approach is to examine the comics over time, as LaRossa et al. do. For example, Blondie comics from 1930, 1950, 1970 and 1990 will provide a structure for your paper and greatly facilitate your analysis. These must be hard copy publications; no Web-based publications qualify.
