Referencing the binary code of the social construct of the birth determinant of sex and the social construct of gender as appearance/behaviour, show both these theories, along with their links to DuBois's theory of Double Consciousness, examples of Goffman's theory of the Dramaturgical Model and mostly Hegel's theory of the Master/Slave dialectic and find their representations in the selected film shown in class, "Paris is Burning" – show how the formations of Race, Sexuality, Class and Gender intersect and how their construction is similar.
How can these theories be explained through the subjects in the film? How does this film display sex/gender/race/class?
How has industrial farming shaped our eating habits and food culture? What are it’s effects on society as a whole? How does it affect people, animals, land, neighborhoods? How is it relevant to class, race, ethnicity, gender, age? How is it relative to local politics, national politics, education, health care, housing? Use talking points from the lecture we attended and/or “Eating Animals”; if you use the book YOU MUST GIVE CITATION, this has to be very clear. YOU MUST shape your argument referencing some of the sociological theories we have discussed this semester such as, Erving Goffman's theory of Dramaturgical Model, Foucault's notions of socially constructed power, Fausto-Sterling's identification of sex as a construct, the social construct of gender as a performance, Hegel's Master/Slave dialectic, DuBois Double Consciousness, Weber’s Rationalization, Marx’s Bourgeois/Proletariat, Durkheim’s Social Facts and notions of Deviancy, to name some. You may chose one or a combination of the ones you feel you understand the best. Your grade will be based on your ability to include sociological theory in your essay; this is not an opinion paper.
Plagerism in your paper will result in an “F” grade for the assignment.
WRITE YOUR PAPER USING THESE GUIDELINES. DO NOT CHANGE MARGINS OR FONT SIZE OR LINE SPACING OR HEADINGS.
The following is the format you will use. This is a double-spaced 4-6 page typed paper using 12-point font and 1.25” margins. You must use the 12-point font and the 1.25"margins, they are the standard set by Office-word, you must simply NOT alter the settings. Points will be taken off this time for changes of these settings; so do not change them. You should put your name on the paper, the day of week your SOC 31 meets and put my name.
1. Introduction—Write a one-paragraph introduction that summarizes the point of your paper and explains the larger conclusions that you have made about your topic. This paragraph should be between 5 and 8 sentences. It should include a clear statement of your argument and it should introduce the readings that you will use. I suggest that you write (or significantly re-write) your introduction after you have finished your paper. This will help ensure that the introduction reflects the ideas that you have developed as you have been writing.
2. Body—These are the middle paragraphs of your paper. Make sure that each body paragraph has a topic sentence. The topic sentence should explain the main argument of the paragraph. Make sure that you explain how your evidence (either quotes from the readings, or summaries of the relevant part of the reading) supports the larger argument that you are making. Each paragraph must refer back to that larger argument and explain how the contents of that paragraph are relevant to your paper.
3. Conclusion—This paragraph sums up the point of your paper, summarizes how you got from the evidence you presented to the conclusions that you drew, and presents an interpretation of the implications of the points you have made.
