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).

INDIRECT MESSAGE STRATEGY (DELIVERING BAD NEWS) As sales manager of Sol-Way, Inc., you must refuse to sell your solar collectors to the Dusek Construction Company. After viewing your website, they sent by email an order worth $64,544. But the prices they used came from the password-protected distributors only section of your website, intended and clearly labeled for your dealers only. You sell exclusively through dealers. You thought you made this clear on the web, but apparently Alfred Dusek, the Dusek president, found a way to obtain these prices. Your dealer in his area is Eli Toms and Son. Sol-Way management thinks that selling through exclusive dealers is necessary. After all, your technique of collecting and using solar energy is only in its infant stage, and consumers often need technical help. Thus factory-trained technicians are available at every dealership. Experience has shown that they are necessary. Your task now is to write a message to Mr. Dusek explaining Sol-Way’s distribution method and defending it. Probably Mr. Dusek already has learned much about your product from your website – how it uses its exclusive evacuated-glass-tubing technology to convey sunlight into useful heat, how the tubing is vacuum insulated, how it retains heat, how it collects significant improvement over flat-plate collectors. You may want to note some of its points in your response. As Dusek is a good prospective customer, be most tactful in your refusal. You will set this message up as an email. Mr. Dusek’s email address is: . Remember to include “to, from, subject, and date” as you set up your email. Please note – you will only create this email and send it to me, DO NOT send this to the email address above as it is a fictitious company. You will need to create this email as a Word document but it will need to look like an email.

4. A farmer in Georgia has a 100-acre farm on which to plant watermelons and cantaloupes. Every acre planted with watermelons requires 50 gallons of water per day and must be prepared for planting with 20 pounds of fertilizer. Every acre planted with cantaloupes requires 75 gallons of water per day and must be prepared with for planting with 15 pounds of fertilizer. The farmer estimates that it will take 2 hours of labor to harvest each acre planted with watermelons and 2.5 hours of labor for each acre planted with cantaloupes. He believes that watermelons will selce for about $3 each, and cantaloupes will sell for about $1 each. Every acre planted with watermelons is expected to yield 90 salable units. Every acre planted with cantaloupes is expected to yield 300 salable units. The farmer can pump 6,000 gallons of water per day for irrigation purposes from a shallow well. He can buy as much fertilizer as he needs at a cost of $10 per 50-pound bag. Finally, the farmer can hire laborers to the harvest the fields at a rate of $5 per hour. If the farmer sells all the watermelons and cantaloupes he produces, how many acres of each crop should the farmer plant to maximize profits? a. Reformulate an LP model for this problem. b. Sketch the feasible region for this problem. c. Determine the optimal solution to the problem by enumerating the corner points.
