The research topic that I chose for my annotated bibliography was regarding homelessness in New York City. I wanted to learn more on this because it has been something I have witnessed all my life but was never too informed on. The discourse community that I am speaking to are people from and residing in New York City as well as college students. The multimodal genres that caught my eye are the poster and blogpost. My goal is to inform and motivate people and hopefully get them to get involved in helping the issue.
