Dr. Dow
Paper/Project # 2
Mash it up …
Whether it is Frankenstein’s creature, Kurtz, Dr. Jekyll, or Mr. Scrooge, many of the characters,
settings, symbols, and even lines (Kurtz’ “The horror, the horror!”) have become parts of our
cultural consciousness, literally our cultural story. These elements from the texts we are
studying in this course are constantly blended into contemporary texts and conversations.
Making a “Frankenstein” has come to mean creating an out of control problem with unintended
consequences, for example.
For Paper/Project # 2, I’d like you to do some blending, or “mashing up” of your own. For this
project, create a text (poem, song, painting, mixed-media work, short story, one-act play, video,
etc.) mashing up the essence of one of the texts we are studying this semester (any text on our
course syllabus) with another text (poem, song, painting, drawing, short story, play, etc.) or an
original text of your own design. Your mash up should make thematic sense. For example,
mashing up Frankenstein with Mary Poppins would result in a rather confusing mash up.
As with Paper/Project # 1, none of this should come from research. I’m looking for you to
engage with the text at this very focused level and your brain.
You then need to write a 4-5-page essay that explains your new text. In general terms, essays
must be focused on a central idea, this focus must be clearly stated in a thesis statement, and
the thesis must be supported with both the student’s analysis of the chosen text and
quotations from the primary text. Please avoid lengthy plot summaries. Please also follow MLA
documentation guidelines.
Having said all this, the very best (most engaging, rich, and enjoyable) essays/projects result
when you choose to write about something that truly catches your attention and interests you.
In other words, start with an idea (a word) that engages you and go from there.
Finally, in lieu of a traditional “cover page,” I’d again like you to begin your essay/project with a
creative illustration of the mash up you have created.
Paper/Project # 2 is due on Wednesday, May 10. Given that this is the last week of the
semester, no late projects will be accepted, no exceptions.
