SOCIOLOGY ESSAY

You will need to write a 5 page paper linking the movie you have chosen to the topics we have discussed in this course. The report should be 5 pages long, double spaced, 12 point font. You will be graded on providing an appropriate short summary of the movie, and on the subsequent sociological analysis.

You should link the book to  one key theme we have studied in class. I will be looking for an in-depth analysis of the theme as it is portrayed in the movie, rather than a superficial mention of topics that are present. In order to make that evidently clear, I ask that you underline each topic you introduce. (see the paragraph below for an example of how to underline)

For example, in some of the movies, a theory of deviance may be heavily featured – you could choose to discuss how the deviance is portrayed in the movie and compare it to the data we learned on violence in the class, from chapter 7 in our textbook. You could look into the storyline for a portrayal of an act that can be understood within a particular theory, and then describe how the movie used that concept.

Or perhaps, you could see how the issue of class is portrayed in the movie , discussing the various examples of status and roles, or how each character embodies a particular class status.
