research paper based on Susan Douglass book, Where the Girls Are.

Specifications for the Written Component

For the written section, you must write a research paper based on Susan Douglas’s book, Where the Girls Are.  This book is 25 years old now, and we need to see whether the same patterns of media portrayals of women from the twentieth century are still used in the twenty-first. The paper must be at least five pages long and must contain the following elements:

A summary of the book which is approximately 2 ½ pages long.

Four items from today’s popular culture that deal with women or women’s issues.  Describe them.  Examples of things that could be used are advertisements, music, political advertisements, media coverage of the Me Too movement, television shows, movies, media coverage of Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin or Elizabeth Warren.  

 Analyze those items applying ideas from Douglas’s book.  For example, do the things that Douglas concluded about television shows such as Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie still hold for situation comedies today?

Assess the impact that the media has on women’s position in society today.


This piece is worth 100 points.



Whoever wants to take this order on will be a life saver.

Thinking with Media

Please write a one-page think piece in which you engage with the week’s readings. You might try to define analytical threads that run through the different readings or you can provide a critique of the ways in which the authors use these ideas. There is no one perfect way to write a think piece. Please do not simply provide summaries of the readings. For this assignment, you need to write about the following authors and put their ideas in conversation with one-another: Gitelman, and Hull. 

Queen Elizabeth’s role in the English Renaissance and Her Time as ruler.

No specifics on how to go about this paper, here’s what I wrote for my proposal if it helps.  I will add some sourced I found in the files feel free to use or find other ones. Also the paper must include a bibliography 

My topic is focused on Elizabeth’s role in the English Renaissance and Her Time as ruler. I’m going to start off by discussing the background on Elizabeth and how she came to be ruler. After I will listen some accomplishments during her timeline as ruler which eventually led to the English Renaissance. Lastly I drive into more details on how Queen Elizabeth played a huge role in the English Renaissance and how it impacted the history of England. Some discussion will contain how she became known at “virgin queen”, how she encouraged expansion, established Protestantism in England and more. 

Thind v. United States

1. Who created/authored/produced the source, and who was the audience? What does this suggest about the point of view reflected in the source? You may consider the social status, age,  and race/ethnicity, and/or gender of the author (if it is discernible). When analyzing the author’s social identities, do not analyze their identities using today’s definitions of race/ethnicity, gender, class, etc. Consider how the author(s) would think about race/ethnicity, gender, class, etc. in their time period. 
2. Where/when was the primary source created/authored/produced? Situate the source in its historical context. Be as detailed as possible! I expect you to draw connections to  our readings and to quote them. 
3. Describe the source and analyze it. What is interesting, strange, and notable about this source. I expect you to show how you are engaging with and interpreting the source, and I expect this section of your paper to be the longest. Provide quotes and explain their importance. Again, be as detailed as possible. A generalized summary is not enough.
4. Why is this source important to our understanding of Asian American history? What does this source teach us? 

Book of Ages

Historians ask how evidence is being used and whether that evidence is convincing. In this assignment, you’ll demonstrate you can do that clearly and an interesting fashion.


Choose one place where Lepore in Book of Ages examines a single document from Jane Franklin’s life and analyze the way that Lepore treats that document, asking yourself: Does the primary source illustrate what Lepore suggests? Is her use of that evidence convincing? Why or why not? You can pick your own moment from Book of Ages but you must pick one that gives you something interesting, original, and significant to say. Begin with your argument: your argument should not be a fact—if all scholars would agree with it, it is probably not an argument. Do not include any additional resources or references. If you use them and cite them, you’ll get a zero. If you use them and don’t cite them, you’ll be referred for plagiarism

  • Use prose, with paragraphs, as if in an essay
  • Between 750 and 1,000 words (include a word count)
  • State an argument in the first sentence of the paper; that’s your thesis.
  • Include at least 3 quotes from the Lepore book.
  • Organization should be clear, with transitions between paragraphs
  • Include a bibliography that lists Book of Ages and footnote each paragraph that has a quote or paraphrase in Chicago Style and citing the proper page number.

Olympic Games

I- The assignment:

  • For this assignment, we offer a choice of three topics as found in online news magazines, newspapers, journals, etc. Choose only ONE of these topics and answer the corresponding questions.
  • Before choosing a topic, you might want to read all the articles pertaining to the topic you chose, as well as the questions that you will have to answer.
  • Only complete assignments will be graded. We will uphold this rule! If you skip a question, you get zero for the whole assignment.
  • Each question must be answered separately. Do not write a long essay that attempts to answer all the questions in one text. Indicate clearly the question you are answering by copying it on your assignment.
  • Unless otherwise indicated, always answer the questions with reference to class material. All this information is at your disposal to help you build strong and well-supported responses. This means that you have to integrate in your answer concepts, ideas, arguments, and/or examples presented in the lectures and the assigned readings. This is your way of showing that you understand the relevance of what you study in class to understand the world in which you live.
  • Be careful when reading these articles. As with all media, these documents have their own political and ideological perspectives on information and on the representation of knowledge. At times, the language and the arguments used in these texts may be shocking to some of you. Keep a critical eye while reading them. Use what you have learned in this class, and be critical.
  • You are free to disagree or agree with the arguments in the articles, but whatever position you take needs to be supported with material from the course. You are also free to make an argument about something that you found interesting or problematic in the article.
  • You can use one outside source only for the whole assignment. It must be an anthropological source from a professional journal or book.
