Project #70120 - Sociology

SOCI 142: TAKE HOME FINAL
Answer the exam questions to the best of your ability. Your responses must be typed, double-spaced, with 1”
margins. The goal of the exam is to assess how well you understand the ideas presented in the readings and
lectures and how well you incorporate specific course concepts into your responses. However, you are to use no
direct quotes. Instead, paraphrase and cite the source appropriately. You are not to use any sources outside of
the materials listed on the syllabus, lecture notes, and media examples from class. If you do not know the
name of a specific film/media clip shared, describe it to the best of your ability and cite to the lecture date when
the material was shared.
 Each longer essay
question can be answered in approximately one to two pages within a focused, concise, and direct response.
You will not be graded based on page length, but on the quality of your response. Your essays should directly
answer the questions, not simply list examples of the concepts or summarize lectures or readings.

Please answer these 2 questions (make sure you read all the requirements posted above):


1) RACE AND REPRESENTATION: Throughout the semester, we have learned about various forms of
representations of race. Compare and contrast representations of race in both popular culture/media (e.g. Sze,
Clark, Leiva, Kelley, Yuen, Díaz, Chávez) and social science literature (e.g. Kelley, Hannerz, Díaz) we covered
in class. A successful answer will also reference at least one example from Week 10 lectures with regard to
anthropological/media representations of Native Americans. How can/do popular media and academic literature
work with and/or against each other? Based on the critiques of anthropologists by Kelley as well as the analysis
of ethnographic practice and media representations in lecture, what are possible solutions to kinds of
representations rendered in both media and social science literature?
(Sze, Clark, Leiva, Kelley, Yuen, Hannerz, Díaz, Chávez, Plascencia, Rosa, Straight Outta LA, Bamboozled clips, etc.)

5) COLOR-BLINDNESS: Compare Omi & Winant’s color-blind politics and Bonilla-Silva’s color-blind
racism. According to these scholars, what does the idea of color-blindness have to do with neoliberalism? How,
according to the course readings, is Obama’s presidency an extension of neoliberal and colorblind ideologies? A
successful answer will place ideas of colorblindness and neoliberalism in a historical context with relationship
to civil rights, immigration, incarceration, unions/labor, and politics.
(Bonilla Silva; Omi & Winant; Lauter; Chávez; Plascencia; Rosa; Thompson; Bonacich and Applebaum; Lewis; Ryan)
