Textual analysis

Textual analysis is a methodology (research method) used to understand the meanings behind media or in popular culture representations. For this assignment, you will choose a Portland-related text (Text is not limited to the written word. It can also be an image, advertisement, film, song, video clip, television show, meme, slogan, etc.) and conduct a critical analysis of the overt and implied messages within this particular representation of the city. Your analysis should identify what the producer of this text is trying to say about the city, discuss whether this representation is accurate or not, and analyze the possible impacts this text may have on Portlanders’ daily lives.
