For this essay assignment, you will formally compare and contrast two photographs of your choosing that, seen together, meaningfully illustrate your argument and connections to history. I am not going to assign the works for you to compare but am giving you the freedom to select pieces on your own that resonate with you and that you believe are significant individually but even more compelling when discussed together.
This is your chance to be creative and assert your scholarly voice and aesthetic taste. In addition to a visual analysis of the photographs, I will expect you to unpack their inherent meaning as single images and argue why your pairing of them together is an effective and persuasive one. Remember, at this point in the semester I expect you to delve deeper than a surface formal analysis so be sure you craft and assert an argument.
Considering we still can’t easily visit art in person these days, you’re welcome to write on any photographs you find online. Be mindful that your paper adhere to a clear, organized structure with an overarching thesis.
You must write about photographs! This may sound obvious but every semester a student or two will write on paintings so I thought I would clarify here
You must select work that we did not discuss in class
Paper length: 4-6 pages
You do not need to consult any outside sources for your paper except your own experience in front of the work. In other words, this paper does not require library or Internet research. However, you may include information written on labels that might accompany the object or featured on the museums’ websites. Be sure that IF you do consult these sources, that you provide proper citations in MLA format.
Use a 12-point, Times New Roman font, normal margins, no extra spaces between paragraphs, etc. Proper formatting and presentation count toward your grade.
Be sure you have carefully edited your paper and have had a second and even third person read it before you submit it. The paper will be graded strictly in terms of both content and writing proficiency (this includes grammar and ability to clearly convey your thoughts).

For this assignment you will have to choose one film from Italy and analyze it with respect to a particular cinematic tradition (e.g., if it’s a German film, give a short overview of German cinema first, and then proceed with your film analysis). Your theoretical film analysis should rely on at least two concepts that have been introduced during the semester (e.g., such concepts as “transnational cinema,” “counter-cinema,” “Third Cinema,” “minor cinema,” “intercultural cinema,” “non-cinema,” “imperfect cinema,” “peripheral cinema,” “accented cinema,” “mythopoetic cinema,” etc). In your analysis you should refer to specific articles we have read, name theoreticians, and introduce their ideas. Overall, your research paper should address the major topics of our seminar with respect to this film; i.e., embrace the questions of global/transnational film through the prism of assigned theoretical readings. In your discussion, you should refer to four sources from the assigned course materials (please see attached sources to be used in the paper), in addition to at least two/three print sources beyond the syllabus.

During weeks 3-5, you will read the book, The Good Earth and author a paper where you offer an introductory paragraph in which they introduce the book, the author, the general topic and offer a thesis. (EXAMPLES of a thesis: a) Buck’s novel, The Good Earth, offers a clear picture of the position of women in pre-industrial China; b) In Buck’s novel, The Good Earth, “land” plays the most important role in one’s success or failure; c) Pearl Buck’s novel, The Good Earth, offers the reader images of strong family relationships in China. You may choose your own thesis. In the 3 to 4 body paragraphs, you should support your thesis by what you read in the book. Finally, you should offer a conclusion. Submit in D2L Assessments/Assignments. I suggest that you keep a paper by your side listing the main characters. (Do not use any other sources in authoring this paper!!!). I will go over this assignment in a recorded PowerPoint. Minimum 750 words. Submit in D2L by end of Week 7.

Justice and “Pauper Management”: Consider Jeremy’s Bentham’s “pauper management”

Justice and “Pauper Management”: Consider Jeremy’s Bentham’s “pauper management” proposal—i.e., his plan to clear “beggars” off the streets and put them to work in workhouse. (Note: This is only discussed in my video lecture for Ethics, Part 1— it is not discussed in the textbook.) Then answer the following questions:
a. Briefly describe Bentham’s proposal, making sure to include all relevant details. Then explain why Bentham, as a utilitarian, thought this plan was morally justified (making sure to describe his reasoning process as a utilitarian).
b. Explain, as clearly as you can, why some may argue that Bentham’s utilitarian justification of this proposal demonstrates the problem of injustice for utilitarianism.
c. Now, consider how a Kantian would judge this proposal. Would a Kantian believe that this proposal is morally justified? Explain as clearly as you can, using one of the formulations of Kant’s Categorical Imperative. Does the Kantian’s response offer a solution to the problem of injustice? Explain.
d. Lastly, what do you think? Which perspective—utilitarian or Kantian—do you favor in respect to this problem, and why? Support your response with a well-reasoned argument.

Choose just one of the following questions to focus on: What could be the possible meaning behind Roy’s mission (if any) in Ad Astra, and if there is any meaning, where does it come from?
How would each of the following philosophical theories/perspectives answer this question?
a. Theistic Perspective: Briefly explain the theistic perspective on the meaning of life. Now turn to your chosen film: how would the theistic perspective respond to the question of “meaning” in the film (as given above)? Explain as clearly as you can.
b. Atheistic Existentialism: Briefly explain atheistic existentialism’s view on the meaning of life. (You may focus on either Sartre or Camus, if you like.) Now turn to your chosen film: how would the existentialist respond to the question of “meaning” in the film (as given above)? Explain as clearly as you can.
c. Objectivist Humanism: Briefly explain objectivist humanism’s view on the meaning of life. Now turn your chosen film: how would the objectivist humanist respond to the question of “meaning” in the film (as given above)? Explain as clearly as you can.
d. Lastly, what do you think? Do you think any of the above theories or perspectives give a good answer to the chosen question? Why or why not? Explain as clearly as you can.
