• The essay is worth 25% of the final course grade. See below for outline.
• The deadline for the essay is 11:59PM, March 27, 2017. The essay must be passed in to Live Text. Problems with Live Text or other related computer issues are the responsibility of the student. Again, see outline below.
• An outline of the essay is due 11:59PM, March 22, 2017 to Live Text. This outline is worth 5% of the final course grade. I am not worried so much about the form of the outline but rather the plan you are using to set forth your ideas for the essay and what from the sources you are using to support that. The outline does not need to be in complete sentences. Words and / or phrases are fine.
• The essay must reference only the sources listed in the file Sources for Culture in Revolt Essay #1. You should not use external Internet sources for this essay. Your essay must use my lectures and the readings covered in the course only to support your analysis! Anti-plagiarism is included in Live Text.
• The essay should adhere to standard essay form: introduction, body and conclusion.
• You should cite ONE source per page of the essay. These must be direct quotes, not paraphrases. You may cite a single source twice but no more IN THE ESSAY.
• The essay must be incorrect APA form for in-text citations and title and references pages. You should use the library’s many resources – the APA template especially – to insure you are in correct APA form. You should check all in-text citations for correctness. Our librarians are there to help you with this.
• You should also use the Grammarly database in the library to help you proofread your essay. Grammar and punctuation are part of the University-defined rubric for writing assignments. Essays filled with misspelled words, comma errors, run-on sentences or fragments will lose points in this area. The librarians will show you how to use Grammarly.
• The iPad Pro, as well as most computers, have a speech to text capability or an app that will read your essay to you. Your ears will pick up grammar and awkward sentences far better than just reading the essay.
• Lastly, Culture in Revolt is a 400 level course and as such the writing for that course should reflect that. Rushed or substandard work will be reflected in your grade for the essay.
The topic is an analysis of Pleasantville and Fight Clubthrough the ideas I presented in class on the counter Enlightenment theories of Freud in his Civilization and Its Discontents and Nietzsche’s The Genealogy of Morals.Please resist any urge to retell me the plot / storyline of the movie. Instead apply the key ideas of each theorist to each film; hence, what are the connections between Freud and Pleasantville and Fight Club? Then what are the connections between Nietzsche and Fight Club and Pleasantville? If you wish you could say there are no connections; however, you must show why? Simply, what would each theorist say about each film? Your essay should be structure then in two sections: 1. Freud on Pleasantville and Fight Club, and 2. Nietzsche on Fight Club and Pleasantville. I know we have not covered Freud and Fight Club and Nietzsche and Pleasantville in class. Just apply their ideas to the film where you see they fit. A thesis should simply state what you are trying to prove.
