Every day we are constantly confronting content whether that is food, sports, movies, images, video games, advertisements, news, or books. It is easy to consume these cultural products mindlessly, however, as we have seen throughout this class, everything is imbricated within systems of power and must be critically analyzed. Using what we have learned in class, students will be asked to step into the shoes of a cultural critic and analyze in “real time” a contemporary cultural object or phenomenon.
For this assignment write a 500-word short essay (approximately 1.5 pages) that connects ONE of the following themes/issues we explored in the fourth and fifth units: empire, militarism, postcolonialism, and globalization. Focus on ONE contemporary object or phenomenon – anything from activism, music, film, sports, food, and popular culture – and discuss it in relation to the theme/issue you have selected. Does the contemporary object explore a new manifestation of oppression? Does it replicate historical forms of oppression? Does it critique old forms of oppression? How does this theme manifest in the contemporary moment? What is different? What is the same? Does it offer new stories and perspectives?
Your paper must be structured as a formal essay and include the following:
Introduction
Thesis statement/Argument
Body paragraphs with evidence
Conclusion
Works Cited
Image that represents the theme/issue
For more details on how you will be graded please see the rubric. You will be graded on the following:
Thesis statement (3 points) – Your thesis statement must offer a specific argument regarding the significance of the contemporary object in relation to the theme/issue you have selected.
Content (3 points) – The content of your essay (ie. your body paragraphs) offers evidence that is well analyze and builds on the thesis statement to scaffold a compelling argument.
Organization and General Mechanics (2 points) – Paper has a clear introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Paper meets the required word count and follows the format requirements. Download format requirements.
