Small Object, Large Subject Essay

Small Object Large Subject

Shared by Ethna Lay

With inspiration from/credit to Adam Gopnik’s introduction to the volume of Best American Essays of 2008

The small object/LARGE SUBJECT essay is often an easy way for students to embark on cultural criticism.  I’d tag it “new media,” as its relevance to this site hinges on the productive role of the affordances of technology like prezi for basic writers during the invention process.
