Focusing on a musical artist of your choice, your assignment begins with the analysis of the lyrics of at least two complete songs, in depth, with particular attention to persuasive appeals (ethos, logos, pathos). You will next analyze images corresponding to album/songs â€“ specifically cover art or a concert poster considering how the artist attempts to appeal to their audience.

Students will also study the artistâ€™s official website (including images and words), identify the target audience, and analyze the PR teamâ€™s construction of the artistâ€™s public identity and use of persuasive appeals.
