Pop Culture Artifact

Due by 8:00 AM on Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Please choose an artifact in pop culture (i.e., film, TV show, music video, advertising campaign, social media posts, etc.) that you believe reflects sex and gender roles in pop culture.

Begin by reserving your artifact on Blackboard. Then, complete the two-part assignment below.

Part One: using the website assigned to you for this class, write an analysis that discusses how you view the sex and gender roles in your chosen artifact as unrealistic AND/OR realistic. Remember that “sex” refers to a person’s physical attributes, whereas “gender” refers to a person’s socially constructed societal roles.

  • Analyze the artifact using 2 theories and/or paradigms we’ve discussed in class and at least 3 outside sources (referenced in your analysis). The sources must be authoritative. This means you should locate your sources on one of our library’s databases, on Google Scholar, or from another similar authoritative source.
  • Include picture(s) or video(s) of the artifact.
  • Your analysis should be an absolute minimum of 1,000 words.

Part Two: present your findings to the class in a 5 – 7 minute presentation.

  • You should create a visual aid to help deepen our understanding. (Your website will not be available, so you will need to use PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, etc.)
  • Presentations will occur April 27 and April 29 on Zoom using our regularly scheduled class Zoom link. (Both classes will occur remotely on the 27th & 29th; there will be no in-class attendance).
