Research Description HELP!
As our course materials make clear, ideas/images of heroes or heroic figures are pervasive and seem to have both universal and unique (cultural, temporal, geographic, etc.) characteristics and meanings. For your research paper, I would like you to focus on one specific character or individual who has been, or arguably could be, proclaimed a heroic (or at least celebrated) figure. The â€œheroâ€ you choose may be most frequently encountered in oral tradition (myth, folktale, legend, personal experience narratives, etc.), print (classical mythology, novels, childrenâ€™s literature, written history, comic books, etc.) or visual/multi-media formats (art works, film, television, Internet, etc.). In all likelihood, crucial understandings (current or past) of any particular hero/celebrity will be found in multiple forms of communication and representation. For example, how many different ways can one come to â€œknowâ€ Hercules, George Washington, or Luke Skywalker?
What hero figure, heroic ideal, or celebrity will you specifically focus on? What data/modes of communication will you deal with? Why, based on your preliminary research, is this important to study?
