DEFINING THE TOPIC:
The readings assigned in this course between January 9 and February 27 raise important questions about the representations of people of African descent in popular culture, and the constructions of gender and sexuality in North America and the Caribbean. This research assignment requires you to define your own research topic based on one of the broad themes discussed in these weeks. You may choose to discuss, for example, one of the following areas:
- The ways blackness is represented in popular culture such as film or TV
- The role of musics in constructing black identities
- The school-to-prison pipeline
- Black women and feminism/womanism
- Intersections of gender, race, class, and/or sexuality in stereotypes about black men or women
This is hardly an exhaustive list! We want you to focus on a topic that is of interest to you. Once you have chosen a broad area, you will still need to narrow it down and refine it to identify the specific topic you wish to explore, the questions you will examine, or the argument you wish to make. Please consult your tutorial leader or one of the course directors if you have problems formulating and developing a topic.
