Project #55695 - Food Rhetoric Narrative

Food Rhetoric Narrative

Assignment: Now that you're familiar with some of the rhetoric surrounding food, you're going to take a look at your own personal connection to food and how it influences your identity. What you eat, how you eat it, and why you eat it says a lot about who you are; in this essay, your goal is to use food to paint a picture of yourself, through narrative. Consider the following questions to help get you started (you don't need to answer them all, they're just to help you brainstorm):

·         How has food influenced your identity?

·         Has a particular food item influenced your identity in some way?

·         Has food had an impact on specific relationships in your life?

·         What specific experiences have you had with food related rhetoric?

·         What persuades you to eat or not eat something?

·         Do you respond in a particular way to a certain food movement?

·         Do you consider yourself involved in an aspect of food culture?

·         What determines what sections you visit in the grocery store and what items you purchase?

·         What determines what you decide to eat in the dining hall or to order in a restaurant?

·         What language do you use when speaking about food?

·         Has any of this changed in different stages of your life?  

In your last essay, you analyzed the way a documentary used rhetoric to convey ideas about food. Think of this assignment as a chance to use similar elements of rhetoric to craft your own "documentary" (through narrative). Be creative! Your audience for this narrative is myself, and your peers.

For this paper, first person will be both expected and allowed. By now you should have several relevant blog posts to draw from as pre-writes.
