Or, does the film deal with smaller scale (microlevel) interactions between individuals such as individual bias or discrimination? Maybe it deals with both levels? • Does the film examine a specific topic throughout, such as race, gender, class, age, sexuality, etc.? • You do not necessarily need to analyze the entire film. Try to identify an overarching message or theme from the film, as well as key scenes or characters to which you will apply sociological theories and concepts. • Review the S&F text for the 4 major sociological themes that are used to examine movies – identity, interactions, inequality, and institutions (p. 4) What is this paper not? • A summary of the movies.

SOC*308*01 Visual Sociology Analysis and Comparison Paper Guide and Instructions Due: April 7th 11:59 pm For this paper, you will pick 2 movies that share a common sociological theme, then analyze and compare/contrast them using a sociological lens. Paper length is 8 full pages (minimum) to 10 (maximum) pages. These films must not be films we have viewed in class and must be of 2 different genres. This paper will be graded on the use and application of concepts and theories to support your analysis. The common sociological theme from the films should deal with topics covered in class (listed in the course schedule). Basic movie genres include— • Action • Adventure • Comedy • Drama • Fantasy • Horror • Musicals • Mystery • Romance • Science Fiction • Sports • Thriller • Western • Documentary List cited from: https://www.masterclass.com/articles/how-to-identify-film-genres#13-classicmovie-genres Things to consider while watching: • Does the film deal with large scale/macro-level forces such as economic or political institutions, or systemic inequality? Or, does the film deal with smaller scale (microlevel) interactions between individuals such as individual bias or discrimination? Maybe it deals with both levels? • Does the film examine a specific topic throughout, such as race, gender, class, age, sexuality, etc.? • You do not necessarily need to analyze the entire film. Try to identify an overarching message or theme from the film, as well as key scenes or characters to which you will apply sociological theories and concepts. • Review the S&F text for the 4 major sociological themes that are used to examine movies – identity, interactions, inequality, and institutions (p. 4) What is this paper not? • A summary of the movies. You are not simply explaining “what happened” in the films, you are analyzing the films (or major parts of them) by applying sociological concepts. Requirements: • Please apply 2 social theories or theoretical concepts to describe and/or explain the sociological topic you have chosen as portrayed in the films. How does the theory you chose explain the aspect of society you are focusing on throughout the films? • In addition to theory, you must relate at least 5 (and no more than 7) sociological concepts to the films. ***This is 5 concepts total, not per film. o When you introduce each concept in your paper, please bold it (for the first time only) • Incorporate references to at least 4 different reading assignments from the S&F text or additional articles. (In S&F, one chapter=one reading assignment). You will also use the Intro to Soc text for citations related to key concepts and theory. Additional information on theories may be found in Chapters 4-6 of the Intro to Soc text • The first sentence of your paper must be the thesis statement. Example: This paper will analyze and compare the films A League of Their Own and Scream to examine gender. • Compare and contrast the films based on the sociological concepts you choose to apply. You don’t need to compare and contrast every single concept – some may work better for comparison purposes, others for contrasting purposes. • Include your own summary/conclusion about what you have learned from the films by analyzing them through a sociological lens. What did you learn from this sociological film analysis and why is it important? Suggested format: • Thesis statement and brief summary of the movies – basically, what are the movies about in less than 2 pages? Additionally, identify the genres of the films in your summary. • Main body – consists of linking the films (or scenes from the films) to theory and 5 sociological concepts (at least 6 full pages). There are 2 ways you may organize this part of the paper: o By film: Link film 1 to theory/concepts, link film 2 to theory/concepts, then compare/contrast (section 3) o By concept: Link both films to theory/concept, then compare/contrast. Rinse and repeat • Your own summary or conclusion about what you have learned from this film analysis (1-2 pages) Additional guidelines • Please use APA format when using citations and references. The plagiarism, citing, and referencing guide in Blackboard provides in-depth instructions and examples related to citing and referencing in APA format. Please use this! o Cites/references are really all I care about in terms of APA. No need for running headers, page numbers, etc. • Please include a title page and begin your paper at the very top of the following page. Your paper should also have a reference list that includes the sources you cited in your paper. Title and reference page do not count toward page length. • Please organize your paper and write in paragraph style – this means no large blocks of text. Generally, a paragraph has between 5-7 sentences. • • • • Please write in a consistent professional font (Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri), 12point size. Papers should be double-spaced and have 1-inch margins all around. 8 full pages means exactly that. At minimum, your papers should reach the last doublespaced line across 8 pages – to be safe, I suggest writing a little bit over onto the 9th page. Your paper will be submitted into SafeAssign, a plagiarism checking software in Blackboard. You will have an option to see your SafeAssign report, make changes if necessary, and resubmit the paper if you choose to do so. You will only have 1 chance to resubmit your paper and this must be done by the paper deadline. What you will be graded on: • Application of 2 theories/theoretical concepts and at least 5 additional sociological concepts. You must demonstrate that you understand the concepts and that you are able to apply them to the films (70 points) • Your concluding summary about the films. This must be meaningful and demonstrate that you have thought critically about the films, their messages, and benefits of analyzing them through a sociological lens (15 points) • Grammar and editing (15 points). This is an upper level course and you must demonstrate that you can write clearly and in a logical and organized fashion. Points will be deducted for spelling, grammar, and sentence structure errors (at minimum, errors suggest that you did not even perform a simple spell check). o I suggest that you read your paper once out loud prior to submission (sounds silly, but it is a fool-proof way to make sure your writing makes sense and to check for errors). o If you are experiencing trouble with writing, visit the Writing Studio and have them review your paper prior to submission.
