I don’t understand this Social Science question and need help to study.
The question posted above is for the final paper (min 9 pages) for my Popular Culture / Consumer Society class.
There are four ways of tackling this final paper. A Consumption Diary, Tracing a Commodity, Qualitative Applied Study and Theoretical. This question falls under the theoretical category ( description pasted below):
- Theoretical: We will be examining multiple theoretical schools of thought.Here you will be deal with many conceptual/philosophical arguments and ambiguities.The point of reference for writing a paper theoretically is to have a well-reasoned and cultivated thesis.For example:Does dominant/popular culture inform subculture meaning-systems or is it reversed?What is the connection between Marx’s commodity fetish and “blackness” in a racist consumer society?Theoretical papers will attempt to answer major questions with primary source material and critical argumentation.
I need 9 pages double spaced with annotations/references from the sources within the attached syllabus.
More information attached in the syllabus under the subject: final paper.
