Pick a fictional movie or television show (not a documentary) to analyze with a sociological imagination. It may be an animated film, a drama, or based on a true story/biography, or approximately 1.5 – 2 hours of television shows (the same show in a series).
Write a 3-4 page paper analyzing that movie with a sociological lens. You’ll briefly summarize the movie, and then, you’ll address the content of the film in light of the sociological discussion we’re having in class and in your readings. Pick one broad theme (e.g., race, gender, a specific theory) to apply to the film. Clearly define that theme—citing Conley and discuss that definition. For example, if you’re discussing racism, discuss various sociological aspects of racism; you may also have sub-themes of racism (ethnocentrism, power, etc.). This focused analysis will give you room to think deeply and analytically about a particular topic. Some questions you might consider in writing your analysis (note: these are only suggestions for prompting your thinking; please do not try to answer ALL of these in your short essay—choose just a few, or maybe only one:
Your paper must be typed, double-spaced, have page numbers and a Reference Page (citing the film, the Conley book, and any other articles from the course that you cited in your essay). The Reference Page is not included in the page number requirement.
