The cultural criticism and transformation bell book analysis

Create an 8-10 page essay that analyzes a media example using the critical race and/or intersectional feminist concepts and theories learned throughout the course through these concepts.

– The media example you analyze may be drawn from popular culture, activist culture, news media, or even consumer culture. The first step in developing this essay is to create a proposal.

– For the essay proposal, your task is to develop an essay topic that meets the criteria of the assignment. A successful proposal will be concise and clearly written; focused and also narrow in scope; and demonstrate understanding of how specific course concepts and theories will apply to the chosen media example.

Additionally, the proposal should clearly identify: a research question, the argument, a brief description of the chosen media example and reasons for choosing it. Also, three main points of analysis that you anticipate making. The three points of analysis should clearly reference the scholarly sources you’ll be using in your analysis.

Four academic sources must be in the proposal, at least two of which are above. A successful proposal will do more than simply name or list the four sources. Instead, the proposal will identify important concepts from these sources and demonstrate how these sources will be applicable to the media example. Source selection will be evaluated, in part, on the demonstrated relevance of the academic sources (and specific concepts) to the proposed topic.
