Sex, Gender, and Popular Culture Spring 2015 Look through popular magazines, and see if you can find advertisements that objectify women in order to sell a product. Alternately, you may use an advertisement on television (but make sure to provide a link to the ad so I can see it!). Study these images then write a paper about objectification that deals with all or some of the following: • What effect(s), if any, do you think the objectification of women’s bodies has on our culture? • Jean Kilbourne states “turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person.” What do you think she means by this? Do you agree with her reasoning? Why or why not? • Some people would argue that depicting a woman’s body as an object is a form of art. What is your opinion of this point of view? Explain your reasoning. • Why do you think that women are objectified more often than men are? • How does sexualization and objectification play out differently across racial lines? • Kilbourne explains that the consequences of being objectified are different – and more serious – for women than for men. Do you agree? How is the world different for women than it is for men? How do objectified images of women interact with those in our culture differently from the way images of men do? Why is it important to look at images in the context of the culture? • What is the difference between sexual objectification and sexual subjectification? (Ros Gill ) • How do ads construct violent white masculinity and how does that vision of masculinity hurt both men and women? Throughout your written analysis, be sure to make clear and specific reference to the images you selected, and please submit these images with your paper. Make sure you engage with and reference to at least 4 of the following authors: Kilbourne, Bordo, Hunter & Soto, Rose, Durham, Gill, Katz, Schuchardt, Ono and Buescher. Guidelines:  Keep your content focused on structural, systemic, institutional factors rather than the individual: BE ANALYTICAL NOT ANECDOTAL.  Avoid using the first person or including personal stories/reactions. You must make sure to actively engage with your readings: these essays need to be informed and framed by the theoretical material you have been reading this semester.  Keep within the 4-6 page limit; use 12-point font, double spacing and 1-inch margins.  Use formal writing conventions (introduction/thesis statement, body, conclusion) and correct grammar. Resources may be cited within the text of your paper, i.e. (Walters, 2013).

“Sex, Lies and Conversation” Paper For the “Sex, Lies and Conversation” paper you will be writing about the article written by Deborah Tannen that I gave you in class. Your purpose is to evaluate her theory on male and female communication and offer your opinion on whether her theory is valid and still accurate twenty-one years after she published the article. In your introduction, you will identify the author and article (full title at least once) and explain briefly what Tannen’s general theory on male/female communication is to your reader. You’ll also explain that you are evaluating and discussing her theory in order to see if it is still a valid, proven theory. Each body paragraph will focus on one of Tannen’s “differences” between men and women ( the ones we just discussed in class and the one above). For each one you will briefly explain the difference, talk about whether you believe this difference is accurate and true and provide 2-3 examples of people in your life (friend, relative, yourself) who either demonstrates her theory or contradicts it. When you have covered all of her differences, your conclusion will basically move on to discuss whether, based on what you have just said and demonstrated, you believe Tannen’s theory is still current, useful and valid, that it is false or outdated or that it is somewhere in between the two extremes. The paper will run 3 to 4 pages in MLA paper format. Women Men Look at each other when talking Not necessary to look at each other Support/Agree Dismiss Stay on one topic Switch topics frequently Want reactions toward their conversations/feedback Silent/ Listeners They prefer to talk in private areas like home They like to talk in public

Not just what part of the ratio changed, but what was happening with the company that could have affected the ratio? If you can not find specific news, what do you think was affecting the ratio? -How does it compare to the industry? At least one ratio from each category should be discussed. As you write your paper think about (These were top reasons I docked points in the past): What are the ratios? This is a finance class give me numbers What does the ratio mean or measure?

When and what was the high price/low price? Does this make sense with what you see overall in your financial analysis? Discuss if the Beta of your company makes sense with what you see on the graph (and your financial analysis.) If your company is too new that no beta has been calculated, you will have to estimate what you believe the beta would be based on the performance. What was the price trend throughout the semester? Why did it move this way? Discuss at least one news event found in an article from a business publication or journal (i.e. Wall Street Journal, Business Week, or any article from library website) that occurred in the 3 year time period you are evaluating. Summarize the article (more than one sentence) and tell me whether you thought the stock price would increase or decrease when investors heard this news; and then tell me what actually happened. Mark the date of the article on your graph. The news event should be about the company not just about the industry. CONCLUSION (¼-½ page) State what actions you think the company should take to become or remain financially strong. The paper should end with a statement about whether you would buy, hold or sell your stock in this company.
