Case Study

The first part focuses on describing your selected story or media example. Second, you need to analyze the story or example in light of a single or two closely related sociological concepts. This is the most important part of the assignment. You need to make a connection between the article, episode, or movie you have selected and a sociological concept that we have discussed in class. The key to you succeeding in this assignment is to make direct and detailed connections to a specific course concept. This will mean citing specific connections from the Manza book or another course reading.
Remember that the primary purpose of this assignment is to get you to apply a sociological principle to the world around you, so as we discuss topics and you read for class, think about how this applies to what is going on in the world around you. If you cannot apply specific sociological concepts, theories, or studies, your entry is incomplete.

Art and Photography

The final folio is an ongoing series of projects that you design (in consultation with academic staff) around a set theme or topic chosen from the list below.  This is best undertaken throughout the semester, rather than at the end.  This will allow you to explore and experiment a range of techniques and skills, as well as develop a more advanced way of thinking about your photography as you work through the course. All images must be taken within the semester dates.
There are two requirements for this assessment
Photographic Images –
A series of images responding to the topic of your choice (from the two options below)
Photographer’s Statement –
A short statement (between 150 and 250 words) outlining your concept and why you have chosen to work with that theme
Requirement 1 – Photographic Images
Choose ONE of the following Topics and submit 5 to 7 photographs, selected as the best images from your developed body of work throughout the semester.
Use the Flickr group page to post your works and see what other students think.  Start working on this project early, and once you feel confident to photograph, head out and start shooting.  Google the artists suggested here, and see if you can get some inspiration from their work.
IMPORTANT: The folio of work is designed to be a cohesive folio of photographic images responding creatively to the theme or concept you develop.  There are many ways to photograph each of the topics, and how you decide to approach the topic forms part of the assessment.
Make sure you images are connected to a concept or response, and not simply 5 to 7 images that are not thematically connected.
TOPIC 1 – Exploring the urban landscape.
The urban landscape has been a popular site of inquiry for photographers, with a significant increase in photographers and artists working in this field over the last 30 years.  Responding to simply questions, such as how we navigate, populate, construct and live in urban environments has resulted in some amazing photography.
Artists working with this theme include;
Peter Bialobrzeski
Andreas Gursky
Edward Burtynsky
Chen Jiagang
Peter Steinhauer
Robert Adams
New Topographics: Photographs of a man-altered landscape
TOPIC 2 – Shadows, reflections & selfies.
Portraiture dominated early photography and it wasn’t long before the self portrait was a popular way for photographers and artists to develop skills and engage with experimental photography techniques.  The global rise of the selfie since the advent of camera phones has seen a massive ‘obsession’ with the self portrait.  However, some artists over the years have used the ‘self’ in interesting ways to explore more complex ideas around who we are and how we appear to the world.  The purpose of this topic is to encourage a more experimental approach to portraiture.
Artists working with this theme include;
Lee Friedlander
Cindy Sherman
Larry Clarke
Nan Goldin
Clare Rae
To upload images for assessment, we use a combination of Blackboard and Google Drive. Watch the video in ‘Assessment Overview’  for instructions on how to upload assessments.
Requirement 2 – Photographer’s Statement
Write a short (150 to 250 words) statement outlining your choice of topic, and why you have chosen to work with that theme. Each of the topics are intentionally broad, allowing you to creatively approach the topic.  For example, if you select Urban Landscape you might want to photograph particular period of architecture, or public swimming pools, or theatre restaurants, or gardens, or shopping centres, or evidence of consumer greed, or evidence of cultural diversity (or not).  Whatever you choose, the theme needs to be explained, and it needs to be evident in all the photographs you submit for the final folio.
Consider answering the following questions to write your statement;
1.What is the concept or idea you are exploring?
2.Why did you select this theme/concept, what was appealing about it for you?
3.What sort of things did you look for in order to find sites or subjects to photograph?
4.What other artists or photographers have worked with this (or a similar) theme, and what kinds of ideas did you get from looking at their work?
5.What were some of the choices you made, photographically, in order to make the images you presented?

The Parliament of Fowls

What the Various Birds Represent in Geoffrey Chaucer’s, “The Parliament of Fowls”

It feels like the intro part is too long and does not specifically explain what the various birds represent in the poem. Can you mention and write more about how the different species are hierarchical, representing the English class structure. Individual birds might represent political figures, but overall the parliament of fowls is a stand-in for the relatively new English parliament. Each species of bird seems to know its place, in contrast to a democratic notion of social equality. Also, the male and female birds generally seem to act like male and female humans.
There has to be a central argument, should be an argument that can be disagreed with, one that takes a position and stakes a central claim.

PLEASE USE THE TEXT (QUOTES) as much as you can. This will really support the idea.
Think about how does the passage you quote support the main argument? How do the details add up to the whole?

There has to be in total of 3 secondary sources (scholarly research). The text itself and the translation cannot be considered as secondary sources. Those are primary.

The Creation Story

2 book sources, 2 primary source materials(ancient or modern), 2 scholarly peer-reviewed articles, 1 biblical commentary. The essay is about the creation story within the different religions and how they relate.

Cultural Diversity in Psychology

Shiraev, E. & Levy, D. (2017). Cross-cultural psychology: Critical thinking and contemporary applications. (6th ed. ). New York, NY Routledge, Inc.

– The text authors believe that despite all the ethnic, cultural, religious, racial, and national differences, people can learn to become more understanding, respectful, and tolerant of each other. In spite of the fact that cross-cultural psychology alone cannot solve the profound problems facing the human race, the authors purport that knowledge coupled with goodwill certainly can create a positive psychological climate that might eventually generate useful solutions (Shiraev & Levy, 2017).

In consideration of the above statement and this week’s reading assignments, discuss how cross-cultural psychology and critical thinking will serve to enhance your own academic, professional, and personal growth. Give examples from your own personal and/or professional life where this has been evident.
