Readings: Chuck Klostermans Which Rock Star Will Historians of the Future Remember? 5 source minimum (see Annotated Bibliography) 1 of the 5 sources must be a non-text object Overview: In Chuck Klosterman’s 2016 NY Times article “Which Rock Star Will Historians of the Future Remember?” the author explores the historical significance of Rock, wondering what Rock history will look like hundreds of years into the future. Klosterman presents the idea that all forms of art are eventually represented by a single, wildly popular artist. He uses John Philip Sousa as an example, noting that more than 100 years after his life and popularity, John Philip Sousa now represents the entire genre of marching band music. In examining rock music, Klosterman uses Sousas dominance of the marching band genre to guide his quest for the John Philip Sousa of Rock. Prompt: Use Klostermans article as a guide to explore any form of artistic expression. Choose a popular artist in a genre you enjoy, whether it be a form of music, film, literature, fashion, technology or other area of creative innovation. Create a thesis that argues for the enduring popularity of his or her work. Analyze this person’s career: What have they contributed Why is it valuable? Apply Klostermans concepts to your analysis and argue in favor of the enduring importance of this person’s work: Why will people of the future will remember this individual as the representative of an entire genre of creativity? Explain why the artist of your choosing is the John Philips Sousa of his or her genre (like the way Klosterman argues that Sousa represents all of marching band music and Bob Marley represents all of reggae). You may select a popular figure in any of the following fields: Literature a story writer, novelist, poet or playwright Music a popular musician in any genre Cinema or Television an actor, director, creator, or producer Print media a traditional or photo journalist Fashion a fashion designer Visual Art: photographer, painter, sculpturer, or street artist Technologya game, app, or software designer Essential Questions As you analyze, consider the following questions. In the process of considering these questions, you should conduct significant research to become better informed about possible topics. How does this person promote specific values?
