visual Rhetoric: Evaluation/Analysis

Description Description: This essay will build on your experience in analyzing rhetorical strategies but instead of analyzing a written text, you’ll be analyzing a film or a single episode in a series, making an argument about its strategies and why or why not they are effective in getting across a specific message about Artificial Intelligence and/or robots to a specific audience. Directions: Choose one of the pre-approved films or single episode in a series and write a review that evaluates it in terms of the criteria you have developed (based on an aspect of Joseph Aoun’s argument in Robot-Proof) for what a visual argument about Artificial Intelligence and/or robots should achieve in order to be persuasive. Other choices must be approved by me via email (please summarize the film’s plot AND explain how its themes are related in some way to ideas from Robot- Proof).
