Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists

Your final project will be to create a meme (image + text) using a quote from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists. If you don’t have the technical capability to create an actual meme that I can see, you can complete the task by describing what the meme would look like (for full credit).

You will be graded on three criteria (10 points possible for each):

  1. Image–choose an image that either relates directly to the book or that relates to an idea that Adichie explores. Bonus points given for use of “classic meme imagery,” many of which are available, along with nifty templates, here (Links to an external site.). Like I said above, if you don’t have the technical chops to copy images onto a doc, you can just describe the picture in detail.
  2. Text–use a short text phrase that gives the meme meaning that relates to We Should All Be in some way. The relationship doesn’t have to be obvious (you will be required to explain it anyway, so go ahead and risk confusing me–I’ll be pretty generous with these, I promise). Bonus points for using a direct quote from the book as your meme text (this might be difficult, so don’t feel pressure to do it).
  3. Explanation–one ¶ describing what you wanted to accomplish with the meme, what theme/idea from the book it corresponds to, and what rhetorical elements it possesses (e.g. what is it arguing, what do we need to know to understand it, what is the relationship between the image and text?). Please spell this out for me even if you think it’s obvious. ¶ should be a MAX of 200 words.
