Write a minimum 5-6 page paper which forwards the analysis of any television show. You will analyze, interpret and explicate the television show according to the criteria of one or more of the critical strategies (or lenses) including: Formalist, Semiotic, Psychoanalytic, Socio-economic, Feminist critical approaches. (You are not limited to these lenses.) The final paper will be submitted in MLA format with a works cited.
As always, your thesis should forward an arguable interpretation and/or evaluation of the text’s value, impact, or significance according to the criteria of any of the critical strategies or lenses listed above. For example, in Mock Feminism: Waiting to Exhale, Bell Hooks uses the feminist and socio-economic lenses (as well as semiotic) to challenge the feminist pretense of what Bell argues is nothing more than mainstream Hollywood capitalizing on traditional sexist and racist stereotypes under the guise of progressive politics.
Your essay should:
