Working in pairs, develop an argument analyzing the role of humanity in the machine of the city, focusing on the written, visual, and nonverbal content of the September 8, 1928 Issue of The New Yorker containing Dorothy Parker's “The Garter." Compose a written response in which you assert an argument analyzing at least two quotations from Parker and at least two screenshots from the magazine.
When you are finished, paste your response on our class’s Google Doc. Remember to include both of your names.
Some topics you might address include: wit, humor, humanity, social life, the city, gender, design, font, advertising, clothing, literature, and taste.
When you have finished, we will discuss the collective findings and the arguments they make.
