Re-Mediating an Argument

Discover my transition remediating an argument that began with a proposal that finished as a documentary.  Please leave a comment below! I’m interested to hear your thoughts as I grew this argument.

Proposal

Description of repurposed project:

I repurposed my project by changing the audience, and conducting research that would include historical evidence to make my claims stronger. I also drew on feminist writings by women of color so that I may enter a discussion about race highly informed and uniquely situated in my argument for gender and racial inclusivity.

Audience for the repurposed AND remediation  project:

Speaking directly to the White Community, and indirectly speaking to women of color with the message of recognition for their devotion to the American Dream.

Reminder of repurposed Form:

Akin to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous open letter to eight White clergymen from Alabama in a Birmingham jail, my letter was similar. This journalistic work is an original draft that would be appropriate for new media in a blogging form. This blog is having a direct conversation with Black women, but engages in an open conversation with the local community. This open letter explores the meaning and significance of race in the imagination of traditional American society.

New medium of re-purposed argument for remediation

Documentary

Why that new medium is the best choice

Provides a vivid interpretation of the argument I’m making for the needed acknowledgement for the historical relevance of women of color to this country in a rich, engaging way.

Proposed deliverables

  • Get viewers conscious about the matters of women of color
  • Assert an expectation that able-thinking people should be more critical about history
  • Make clear of the relevance for women of color to this nation, and our world
  • Be transparent about the conversations that communities of color have about their historical contributions to this country
  • Challenge viewers to think and rethink history, and what makes this nation “great.”
  • Give context to the isolation and disengagement that this country has with women leaders from these communities
  • Translate the contributions that women of color make to this nation in a way that makes it relatable to others
