Descriiption: The United States is a consumer-driven economy. As such, American culture is represented and influenced by the things we consume. These artifacts of consumption have gone beyond simply performing a function or satisfying a need. They represent and even impact what we do, what we think, and who we are: as individuals, as communities, and as a society. Moreover, people in consumer societies use their possessions to communicate with one another. Sonia Maasik and Jack Soloman, authors of Signs of Life in the USA: Readings on Popular Culture for Writers, argue “…our possessions aren’t simply objects, they’re signs—from the out-and-out status symbols whose purpose is to convey your place in the social hierarchy, to the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, and even the smartphone you choose to buy…” (68). As such, these artifacts of consumption are full of cultural significance and meaning just waiting to be analyzed.

For this first essay, you will write a thesis-driven essay that focuses on the social and/or cultural significance of a consumer artifact within America’s consumer culture. You will start with a semiotic analysis of that artifact, which you will generate through pre-writing. In reading the introduction to Signs of Life, “Popular Signs: Everything You Always Knew about American Culture (but Nobody Asked)” and the introduction to the first chapter “Consuming Passions: The Culture of American Consumption,” we can see how an astute analysis of such an artifact can lead to an understanding of an artifact’s social or cultural significance within American popular culture (skinny jeans, for example) and how such an analysis can tell us something about ourselves and the society in which we live. When choosing a topic, remember that you are to analyze some actual physical object (package of food, article of clothing, piece of technology, etc.) and that the object should have enough social or cultural significance on which to write a 4-5 page paper (1200 words).

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
