ICSM 10800-04 / Fall 2020 S.A. DelaneyUnit 2: What Do We Mean When We Talk About “Anxiety”? upd. 10/6According to a national survey published in February 2019 by the Pew Research Center, anxiety and depression rank as one of the top concerns for US teenagers. Numerous reports—including this one from Pew—assert that anxiety was on the rise among college students prior to the pandemic, and we know that our current situation has only exacerbated this state. But what do we mean by “anxiety”? What feelings and experiences are encompassed by this term? What does it mean to identify as a person with anxiety? We’ll draw on ideas from disability studies and intersectionality in our conversations. The Unit will conclude with a formal analytical argument of 1200-1500 words worth 20 percent of the overall course grade.What Do You Mean By “A Formal Analytical Argument”?We often use the word “argument” to mean the exchange of strong opinions, and when writing for school, it generally refers to a persuasive essay—one that has a clear thesis statement and relevant supporting evidence. In Unit 1, I pushed you to step away from that thesis-support (e.g., five-paragraph essay) style of writing in order to more fully explore and explain your thinking. The analytical argument I’m asking you to write for Unit 2 will combine these modes to create a richer, more complex essay.What Do You Mean By “Analysis”?In their textbook Writing Analytically David Rosenwasser and Jill Stephen offer this four-part definition of analysis, which is worth quoting at length:1. Analysis seeks to discover what something means. An analytical argument makes claims for how something might be best understood and in what context.2. Analysis deliberately delays evaluation and judgment.3. Analysis begins in and values uncertainty rather than starting from settled convictions.4. Analytical arguments are usually pluralistic; they tend to try on more than one way of thinking abouthow something might be best understood. (Rosenwasser and Stephen 6-7)Analysis, then, starts with inquiry: questions followed by careful observation. To delay evaluation and judgment requires that we acknowledge and bracket our gut reactions—we must stay with the problem longer, seeing it from every possible perspective, considering what may seem counterintuitive. Only then can we arrive at a reasoned, thoughtful conclusion.Who’s Our Audience For This Essay?Beyond the obvious answer—me, your professor—your imagined audience for this essay is the journal Inquiries, which describes itself as “an open-access academic journal that highlights the work of students at the undergraduate level and above.” Consider this assignment an opportunity to prepare a scholarly essay for possible submission to this journal. As part of our activities, we’ll look more closely at the journal’s website and its expectations.What Kind Of Research Will We Have To Do?Your analysis will focus on one specific conversation about anxiety. That conversation may have taken place in a more traditional magazine or newspaper, on social media, on a cable news show, or elsewhere. It needs to be a conversation that you can capture and study in detail. As with your first essay, you may find it necessary to narrow your focus to make your analysis more manageable.How Should I Cite My Sources?You’ll need to use formal MLA citation style for this essay. That means that in addition to including all sources on the Works Cited, you need to fully and formally introduce all of your sources, as we’ve been practicing. Any and all ideas and details should be directly attributed to the appropriate source (“According to political reporter Joe Blow of the New York Times…”). In addition, you’ll want to provide parenthetical in-text citations (or PITCs) as needed.ICSM 10800-04 / Fall 2020S.A.
