Podcast Research Assignment

“A composition is an expression of relationships—between parts and parts, between parts and whole, between the visual and the verbal, between text and context, between reader and composer, between what is intended and what is unpacked, between hope and realization. And, ultimately, between human beings.”     --Kathleen Blake Yancy


Background: What exactly am I doing in this project?

Writers in the 21st century now more than ever have to think about producing writing that communicates across geopolitical, cultural, and linguistic borders. In other words, writing isn’t tethered solely to alphabetic text in a Word document. So in this assignment, I’m asking you to compose in audio with text, voice, and lots of research to make a podcast episode that chases after a few good questions related to your issue/topic regarding home.
