Remember that you are researching this aspect in relation to Marjane Satrapi's personal narrative. So, it will probably be useful to read at least the introduction to Persepolis before starting to do your resarch (but also your research would change your understanding of the text - it is all related). Be ready to share the information you find with your peers during class (so bring in notes). Please let me know if you have any questions about this!

While you read these articles, I want you to annotate them on the margins, writing your comments and reactions to the writer’s words, as well as questions that may arise as you read. While you think about these readings, please keep in mind your experience with genre thus far, especially as you wrote your personal narrative project. Once you are done reading, please write a summary of the article which you will bring in to class on Monday March 18th. These summaries need to be typed and printed. I will be picking them up on Monday.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Even though I will not be at ISU, I am available via email.
