I don’t understand this Sociology question and need help to study.
Can you help me with this assignment ?
It’s due on Thursday Mid
The movies title: ” Ivory Tower”
This course is intended to give students a broad understanding of social problems from a sociological perspective, and how they are often interrelated. To this end, you are expected to write a 6-8 page final paper that illustrates your cumulative knowledge gained. This will serve as your final exam. For this paper, choose a contemporary piece of entertainment (released in 2008 or later) that highlights a particular social problem. You can select a film (not a documentary), album/music, television show (not a docu-series), etc. Write a reflective analysis, relating it to the various topics we have covered in class.
1. Start with evaluating the type of inequality your selected piece of entertainment focused on, including but of exclusive to:
- Race & Ethnicity
- Social Class & Poverty
- Sexual Orientation
2. Then select the social institutions within with which these inequalities exist (more than one may apply), including but not exclusive to:
- Work & the Economy
- Health & Medicine
- Justice system
The goal is to discuss how each of these sections is interrelated, rather than looking at each individually. How do they connect to each other, intersect and overlap? Be sure to bring in key class concepts like power, privilege, and oppression.
Feel free to extend beyond your selection, if necessary. In other words, if the film/tv show, etc. doesn’t explicitly highlight how the social problem relates to various topics, you can still discuss the ways they relate outside of that purview.
The paper should be double-spaced using 12-point font. In addition to the content, students will be graded for correct grammar and spelling. Citations should be in MLA, APA or Chicago format (the reference page does not count towards the page limit).
