Final project must be proposed by the 5th week of class. You have two options for this assignment:
a) Write a research paper on a topic of your choosing. Your paper should combine theories/methodologies discussed in class with textual analysis of a film/TV series. (This can be an extension of your Disney paper.) You must use at least 1 of the readings from class and at least 3 academic sources not covered in this course. Use formatting and citation as outlined in the Chicago Manual of Style.
Undergraduates – 10-12 pages
Graduates – 15-20 pages
b) Create a videographic essay. This digital project will incorporate oral analysis with visual evidence from the film/show you have chosen to discuss. You must use at least 1 of the readings from class and at least 3 academic sources not covered in this course.
Undergraduates – 4-8 minutes
Graduates – 5-10 minutes
