Political campaign provide rich insight into how candidates seek to obtain support from prospective voters. The means by which this can be achieved include the use of both slogans and paraphernalia, which provide aid in delivering a candidate’s platform by alternative means.
You will research a specific presidential or congressional political campaign of your choosing from between 1920 and 1970. The research will focus on the slogans and paraphernalia used in the campaign and what those items reveal about the period’s political culture. You will make a 6–8-minute narrated Adobe Creative Cloud Express presentation in which you will analyze the significance of 1 slogan and 1 piece of paraphernalia used by 1 candidate in the election.
In order to make a presentation using Adobe Creative Cloud Express, you will need to create an Adobe ID by going to the Adobe Creative Cloud Express website, which will enable you to access and use this resource at no cost; if you already have an Adobe ID, you may use that to gain access. Finally, you must provide a bibliography of at least 4 scholarly sources in current Turabian format as well as provide brief, verbal attributions of sources within the narration as appropriate (e.g., “According to so and so…”). See the following helpful resources for accessing Adobe Creative Cloud Express, and step-by- step guides from Adobe on how to build a video presentation using their website.
