Homework Question Assignment 3

For homework question assignments, you respond to targeted homework questions based on articles, videos and/or research that relate to learning goals 1-6 in the syllabus. These are low stakes assignments designed to help you engage with the material. I will mark whether you attempted the questions and a good faith effort is all I ask for at this point. These may be informally hand written, typed or spoken expositions such as bullet points. They are due at the beginning of class before our class discussion, so you may want a second copy, for example by taking a picture of your work. There is no late work accepted, but the lowest two homework question assignments can be dropped.

  1. Choose a representation of a male in popular culture that you are familiar with. List their name and where they are portrayed.
    (Example: Finn, Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
  2. Comment on an item in this article as it relates to your response from #1.
    (Example: Finn is openly emotional and caring, probably closest to the `new man as nurturer' categorization.)
  3. This article was full of examples of a summary approach of popular culture (that some might broadly refer to as as content analysis). As part of the authors' analyses, the text satisfied:
    LG 1: I can summarize media and popular culture representations of gender.
    Which LG 1 summary most interested you? Why?
  4. Name at least two aspects of this article that that you found interesting, that you disagreed with, and/or that you had a question on.
