Homework Question Assignment 4

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. Name at least two aspects of each article (so you will have at least four total-two from each article) that you found interesting, that you disagreed with, and/or that you had a question on.
  2. In the last section of "Beyond the Two-Gender System: Queer Theory" the authors note: "More recently we have seen other sensitive representations of queer bodies on the screen." Choose such a representation within popular culture from the last couple of years that you are familar with. List their name and where they are portrayed. (Example: Drew Reeves Dead of Summer)
    If you are not already familar with any such representations, search the web to find one to list.
