Humanities : Gender

Your essay should be five pages—though it can be more. It should be double space

Your essay should be five pages—though it can be more. It should be double spaced, and this does NOT include your Works Cited page (Bibliography). You should NOT space extra between paragraphs. Please put page numbers in the header or footer, and include a list of your sources at the end, preferably in MLA, APA, or Chicago Style.

Step one – find three sources that are scholarly, or peer reviewed. Google  “Google Scholar.” This will help you find scholarly sources. You can also ask a Librarian in the chat on the Library web page. Go ahead! Librarians are there to help you.

Step two, find at least two other sources. These can be scholarly or not. You can have as many sources as you want.

List your sources in a document, along with notes underneath each one about why you picked them and how you want to use them. What will they help you show?

Arrange these sources and notes alphabetically, according to MLA Style on the OWL at Purdue web site. You can also get help at the Writing Center. Go to the Writing Center page to find out how to sign up for an appointment.

Post this list—your Annotated Bibliography– in your Journal for DOUBLE POINTS. That’s right—you get double the usual Journal points for this, so be sure to do it to boost your grade!
Step three, write your research paper according to the directions below.

***This paper needs to be intersectional (about race and gender together).

***This paper needs to be scholarly, which means it has three scholarly sources–peer reviewed articles in academic journals–NOT just popular ones (like websites, magazines, or newsapers). Cite from your sources. List them at the end of your paper in a Works Cited list.

HINT: The Judith Butler article “Imitation and Gender Insubordination” in your Week Ten reading DOES count as a scholarly article, if you use it. That means you will only need to find two (2) more.

Drag originated in gay culture and was exported to the mainstream–via film and television–and transformed in the process. Feminists have sometimes seen drag as sexist and misogynist, and it can be, but drag balls date back to at least the 19thcentury, and began to garner mainstream popular attention in the 1960s with Andy Warhol’s Factory productions and Susan Sontag’s famous essay “On Camp.” Female drag kings and male drag divas were present in cabarets and clubs in the 1920s, 1930s, and onwards, but it can be said to have entered the cultural mainstream in earnest in the 1990s, with Jenny Livingston’s 1990 documentary Paris is Burning, and more recently, with television shows such as RuPaul’s Drag Race and its spinoffs, and Ryan Murphy’s Pose. These days we recognize the complexity of drag as a tribute to feminine strength, power, and fierceness, as well as a parody of “normal” mainstream ideals of gender. We also recognize drag kings as similar in their theatricality to traditional female impersonators, while also embodying masculine qualities of dignity, boyishness, and smooth flirtation.

Arguments you can try in your paper might be these:
Is drag today on mainstream tv an example of cultural dilution and commodification? 
Is drag a dynamic site of culture and meaning making?
Is drag evolving and improving?
Is drag deteriorating or being appropriated?
Is drag these days critiquing gender, or embracing it? Or both?
RuPaul identifies as male, and discourages trans women from being on his show. Should female drag competitions be limited to performers who still identify as male, or should there be more open categories for trans women, as there were in Paris is Burning?
Drag kings have been around for decades as well, but are almost completely unknown and invisible, except in queer circles. Why? Is male drag more exciting? Or just better known?

Decide what you think about one of these questions, and decide what your argument is. YOUR PAPER SHOULD MAKE AN ARGUMENT.

FIRST, define drag. Use Paris is Burning to help you define drag and walking in drag balls. You can also look at some of these older drag clips from You Tube (that are right here) as well. What was drag like in the 1920s? The 1960s? Is drag in Paris is Burning similar to these early film clips? Pay attention to terms that the performers define for you, and think about how drag categories involve not only gender, but race and class.

THEN, compare drag then and now. Pick an episode or scenes from RuPaul’s Drag Race,or an episode or scenes from Pose or Legendary (HBO Max), and compare it to Paris is Burning and/or these earlier clips, analyzing how drag is performed by participants at different geographical, historical, and cultural moments. You can also look at the Vogue article about Drag Kings and talk about why female drag is so popular, but male drag is still unknown.

Use this definition of drag and comparison of then and now to answer one of the 7 questions in the list above. If it is easier to start with those questions, do that. If it is easier to define drag and compare it to Drag Race, drag kings, etc. in order to work towards one of those questions, do that.

Remember to be intersectional!

Pose is an FX show available on cable and tv streaming sites on demand, and on Hulu. It is also on YouTube for $1.99 an episode, and on Amazon Prime video and iTunes as well, but there are also great free clips on the FX website, if you click on the “video extras” link. You should be able to talk about the show sufficiently if you just watch some of these, if you don’t want to or can’t pay for full episodes. https://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/pose

RuPaul’s Drag Race is a show developed for Logo and VH1. You can watch it on demand or buy episodes in the usual way on Amazon, iTunes, etc.. There are spinoff web shows such as Untucked and Whatcha Packin that you can watch for free on the VH1 Drag Raceshow site, but you should try to watch one Drag Race episode if you can, just to get an idea of the format. There are free clips on YouTube, such as this one: https://youtu.be/OjG4_k6L6GA .

Paris is Burning is available on Kanopy at https://www.kanopy.com/en/olemiss/video/10910624. If you haven’t used Kanopy, just google it and sign in with your University of Mississippi username and password. It is also on YouTube right now at  https://youtu.be/k70tlLetqqw . If you have never seen it, watch it now! Everything drag these days–includy Ryan Murphy’s show Pose–comes from this 1989 documentary. It is only about an hour and 15 minutes long, and it started the whole ballroom craze way back when. I have also put links for it in your Module Ten.

You can draw on anything we have read or watched this semester to talk about drag, as well as outside reading, tv shows, film, and articles both popular and scholarly. You will be graded on how well you synthesize, research, and argue (see rubric). Your essay should be five to seven full pages, double spaced, and this does not include your works cited page. It should be AT LEAST five double-spaced pages, and you should NOT space extra between paragraphs. Please put page numbers in the header or footer.

IMPORTANT: You need to find three scholarly sources. You can use Judith Butler as one of your scholarly sources if you want, and I encourage you to do so. How does she define drag? Do you agree, based on these shows and films? What is important about drag today?

Then find two more sources on Google Scholar, or you can ask a librarian on the Library page via chat. You can have as many sources as you want.

DIRECTIONS: Answer ONE of the below essay questions in an organized, substantive

DIRECTIONS: Answer ONE of the below essay questions in an organized, substantive, well-developed essay. READ ALL OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO WRITE THE ESSAY!
<
<
For this essay assignment, you may ONLY use the following:
<
<
1. The Give Me Liberty! textbook
<
2. The American Perspectives e-reader (you will be required to incorporate at least ONE primary source from American Perspectives)
<
3. My recorded lectures and your notes on those lectures
<
4. Any other reading or other supplemental materials provided in the course
<
<
You may NOT refer to or use ANY outside sources, including (but not limited to) other books, websites, YouTube videos, and online study/cheating resources such as Course Hero, Chegg, and Quizlet (which I check regularly). Even if properly cited, the use of ANY outside source will result in an automatic point deduction of AT LEAST 10 percentage points (and possibly more, depending on the severity of the offense, with a possible score of ZERO on the assignment). You have more than enough materials to complete this assignment without the assistance of any outside resources.
<
<
A successful essay will consist of SIX substantive paragraphs: an introduction, four body paragraphs (each consisting of AT LEAST 10 to 15 sentences), and a conclusion. This is what is expected in each section of the essay:
<
<
1. The introduction should be at least four to five sentences and should introduce the topic and set the stage for the essay. This is an argument-driven essay, so most importantly, the introduction MUST include a strong thesis statement (argument) that directly responds to the central question posed by the essay prompt. The thesis statement must be UNDERLINED so I can easily find it.
<
2. Each body paragraph must address the required key terms listed in the essay prompt. Each numbered set corresponds to a body paragraph (the key terms in the first numbered set should be addressed in the first body paragraph, the key terms in the second numbered set should be addressed in the second body paragraph, and so on). You must address ALL of the listed key terms—there is no choice between the key terms. Your body paragraph must fully define each key term, addressing the following items: WHO or WHAT the key term is, WHEN the event happened (may not be applicable to all key terms), WHERE the event happened (may not be applicable to all key terms), the SIGNIFICANCE of the key term (why is it important?), and the CONTEXT of the key term (1-3 sentences providing enough background information to contextualize the key term). For each key term, you should include as much detail as you possibly can. You must also tie each key term back to the larger essay prompt and your thesis statement. Each and every body paragraph MUST make connections to the larger essay prompt in order to reinforce your thesis statement, since this is an argument-driven essay. Do not simply define the key terms as if you are writing short answer key term definitions.
<
3. The conclusion should be four to five sentences, and it should wrap up the essay by restating the thesis statement and summarizing the evidence reinforcing your argument.
<
<
IMPORTANT: While you can use all of the above-listed course materials to write this essay, you MUST substantively use and cite at least ONE of the primary sources that I have assigned this semester from the American Perspectives reader (you can find all of those listed in the Canvas modules and the syllabus). The primary source that you choose must be relevant to the essay prompt and must be used in at least one of the body paragraphs to reinforce your thesis statement. You should be thoughtful as to how you incorporate this primary source—choose one that can help you prove your thesis statement.
<
<
There is no required page or word count—this essay will be graded on the substance of each section of the essay. The essay must meet the following formatting requirements:
<
<
1. The essay must be double-spaced.
<
2. The font must be 12-point Times New Roman.
<
3. The margins must be 1-inch on all sides.
<
4. The essay must be saved as a Word (.doc or .docx) file. No other file formats will be accepted on Canvas.
<
5. You MUST include footnote citations throughout the essay showing where you got your information from. Nothing should be left uncited! See below for citation instructions. Although you need footnotes, you do NOT need a works cited page.
<
<
CITATIONS: You must use FOOTNOTES (no MLA or APA parenthetical citations). If you do not know how to insert footnotes into a Word document, see the following short tutorial video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9_dw_CxG6w
<
<
Please use the following formats for your footnote citations:
<
<
– For lecture material, use the following footnote format:
<
<
Christopher Haight, “Title of Lecture,” Date of Lecture.
<
<
– For Give Me Liberty! material, use the following footnote format:
<
<
Eric Foner, Give Me Liberty! (Sixth Edition), Page Number(s).
<
<
– For American Perspectives (primary source) material, use the following footnote format:
<
<
Author of Primary Source, “Title of Primary Source.” American Perspectives, Page
<
Number(s).
<
<
– For podcasts, use the following footnote format:
<
<
“Title of Podcast Episode,” Name of Podcast, URL Address.
<
<
IMPORTANT: If your essay is not properly cited, you will lose a SUBSTANTIAL number of points. If you have any questions about citations, please do not hesitate to reach out and ask. If your essay does not have any citations (or if it only has a few citations, with large portions of the essay remaining uncited), it will receive an AUTOMATIC ZERO—I am not going to grade uncited essays. Also, essays that have false citations (I do check citations) will receive an automatic zero.
<
<
ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: Lastly, do not plagiarize any part of this essay or engage in any other academic dishonesty (this includes working together through GroupMe).Your essay will be run through Turnitin, which will catch most instances of plagiarism. In addition, I am extremely vigilant about checking the usual places students go to get information (such as Chegg), and it is safe to say that you WILL be caught. If you are caught plagiarizing any part of this essay or engaging in any other form of academic dishonesty, you will receive a ZERO on the assignment with NO opportunity for a redo. You will also be reported to HCC for academic dishonesty via the Maxient system, and college-level disciplinary action may follow. There are NO exceptions to this policy. Plagiarism also includes “accidental” plagiarism (such as paraphrasing the textbook or one of my lectures too closely), so be VERY careful if you paraphrase a source! All parts of the essay must be COMPLETELY YOUR OWN WRITING (it is not enough to just change a few words here and there to “make it your own”).
<
<
This essay is due via the Canvas assignment submission link by 11:59pm on Wednesday, December 7. The 48-hour grace period applies, so no points will be deducted as long as the essay is submitted by 11:59pm on Friday, December 9. NO LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE GRACE PERIOD (NO EXCEPTIONS)!

Essay Prompts (Choose ONE)

1. Following the Revolution, American political discussion was dominated by a debate between Federalists and Anti-Federalists; although the names of the parties changed over time, their central arguments regarding the power of the federal government remained. Write an essay that traces this debate from the Founding to the years of the early republic. Your thesis statement (argument) must address the following central question: What were the main arguments between supporters and opponents of centralized government, and which side “won” the debate by the early 1800s? You must use the following key terms: (1) Articles of Confederation; (2) Federalists / Anti-Federalists / Constitution / Bill of Rights; (3) Bank of the United States / Whiskey Rebellion; and (4) Democratic-Republicans / Louisiana Purchase.
<
<
2. In the Jacksonian era, the United States saw a contradiction between rapidly expanding democracy (the power of the “common man”) and a brutal crackdown on Native Americans. At the same time, there was a fundamental clash between federal power and states’ rights. Write an essay that traces these major issues in the Jacksonian era. Your thesis statement (argument) must address the following central question: Were Jackson’s actions as president consistent with his belief in a limited government and the power of the “common man”? How did politics change by the 1840s? You must use the following key terms: (1) Andrew Jackson / Democratic Party; (2) Indian Removal Act / Trail of Tears; (3) Tariff of Abominations / Doctrine of Nullification / Second Bank of the United States; and (4) Whig Party / John Tyler.
<
<
3. As the 19th century progressed, the United States became increasingly divided between North and South, largely revolving around the issue of slavery. Write an essay that traces both the attempts in Congress to “resolve” this longstanding debate over slavery AND the attempts by enslaved people and abolitionists to fight the existence of slavery. Your thesis statement (argument) must address the following central question: How important was the issue of slavery in the events leading up to the Civil War, and at what point did war over the issue become “inevitable”? You must use the following key terms: (1) Cotton Gin / Domestic Slave Trade / Missouri Compromise of 1820; (2) Nat Turner’s Revolt; (3) William Lloyd Garrison / Elijah Lovejoy / Gag Rule; and (4) Compromise of 1850 / Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 / Republican Party / Bleeding Kansas.

b. Use the list of steps on the right and your paragraph to make a poster that explains why hot-air balloons float. Your poster should be creative and easy to understand.
<
<
5. Write a paragraph that explains why hot-air balloons float. (my answer to the question is below)
<
<
(answer) First, the pilot allows the gas burner flame to heat the air inside the balloon. This causes air molecules inside the balloon to start traveling at higher speeds and they collide with each other. The warm molecules push each other farther again, taking up more volume. This means that the balloon becomes less dense than the surrounding air and begins to float.
<
<
<
List on the Right
<
Why hot-air balloons float Answer question 5a before you read this sidebar!
<
1. The hot-air balloon pilot allows the gas burner flame to heat the air inside the balloon.
<
2. The now-warm air molecules are traveling at a higher speed than they had been.
<
3. The warm air molecules collide with greater impact.
<
4. The warm air molecules push each other farther apart, taking up more space.
<
5. The volume of the air in the balloon increases. Some air is forced out of the opening at the bottom because the envelope of the balloon doesn’t stretch very much.
<
6. The mass of the remaining air is less, but the volume is about the same. This makes the density of the balloon less.
<
7. Buoyancy says that less-dense objects (the warm air in the balloon) will float in more-dense fluids (the cool surrounding air). Therefore, the hot-air balloon floats high above the ground

Written Assignment: Income Inequality briefing paper
<
Length about 4-5 double spaced pages (with table or chart inserted)
<

<
The purpose of this short written assignment is to
<
a. Expose students to rudimentary skills in data analysis (reading a statistical table, employing simple comparison and contrast techniques, recognizing data patterns);
<
b. Help them recognize emerging “stories” (i.e. how we characterize – in narrative form – what data is telling us about an important issue) in tables, charts and graphs;
<
c. Critically reflect upon the meaning and validity of these stories and…
<
d. Give them an opportunity to apply a social justice assessment of the stories embedded witin the data one is examining.
<
Instructions:
<
1) Pick one of the featured tables and or charts below (or go to the Economic Policy Institute website and pick out an economic inequality relevant table, chart or graph that interests you).
<
Before you start writing your paper…
<
2) Look at the title of the table/chart.
<
a. What is it about? What or who is the “unit of analysis?” what kind of data is being featured: income, wages, accumulated wealth, something non-monetary?
<

<
3) Carefully examine the data reflected in the table / chart:
<
a. Are we looking at a comparison of individuals or groups in a single point in time or are we looking at trend data over more than one, or even many points in time?
<
b. Look for patterns in the data; compare and contrast different categories. Look deeply at the chart/ table and ask yourself: what is being compared here? What patterns do I see? What data stands out from the pattern? what SURPRISES am I finding in the data?
<
c. Now step back from the chart or table and ask: what is the story? Why do the authors want me to look at this table? Is it telling me something new and important about an important issue? What is it?
<

<
4) Draft a quick outline of your paper and begin writing, being sure to address the following:
<
a. Describe the chart / table. Note its title, the categories in the rows and in the columns (or the X and Y axes on a chart or graph),
<
b. Describe the type of data you are examining and why it is interesting to you and important for the reader to understand.
<
c. Highlight the most important patterns and/or comparisons that stand out to you.
<
d. Interpret the table or chart: what “story” emerges from the patterns and/or comparisons? What is the table or chart telling us? What point is it making? Keep in mind, some tables make multiple points. You don’t have to say everything about your selected table or chart; just whatever you think is most salient and interesting.
