Schudson’s 5R Model


Select a single, particular cultural object (e.g., the Harry Potter series (book or movie), the Los Angeles Rams, the Fallout video game series, America’s Next Top Model, The New York Times, The Museum of Natural History… You are limited by your own interests and imagination). Using Borer’s article as a model for your own analysis, analyze your particular cultural object with the 5R framework.k  touch upon each of the five dimensions of the framework, (1) retrievability, (2) rhetorical force, (3) resonance, (4) institutional retention, and (5) resolution. Cite multiple relevant newspaper or academic accounts, as needed, to make your argument.
