CAR 301: Final Project, Elle Conflict & Reconstruction (Due April 30)

For this project, you will create a commemorative edition of Elle magazine based on a topic from the class.

Each edition of Elle should have:

1. A cover with the proper logo and a human subject that is related to the topic, and
2. At least one 500 to 600-word article per person.

For the articles, you may choose to write either one of the following options:

  1. A feature article about a specific perspective on the topic itself.
  2. An interpretation of an image that represents the time period.
  3. An account of an exclusive (fictional) interview with a historical figure or a character from the novel belonging to each topic where you use the novel as a historical source to explain a perspective on the topic at hand.
  4. An account of a real interview with someone that experienced something in your time period.
Each team will have a team leader who will plan the magazine and make the final decisions on the direction of the design and how the topic is covered. The teams will be as follows: 

Elle Edition
USA – February
The Cold War from an American Perspective
Fernanda Castro
Soviet Union - March
The Cold War from a Soviet Perspective
Soviet Union – April
Counterculture and minority rights in the Communist world
United States - May
