Write a paper in which you engage in a close textual analysis of a visual text such as a TV series, film, music video political ad or series of ads, commercial advertisement, artistic piece, etc .. The purpose of your close textual analysis is to develop a paper that thoroughly answers this question. What messages or ideas about gender are embedded within this text beyond the most obvious stated, intended messages? Film preferred “HIDDEN FIGURES” For the purposes of this assignment we are referring to these visual media as “Visual Texts” so as to emphasize that it is necessary to “read into” them in order to develop an intelligent, original analysis. These ideas are sometimes intentionally placed to add more complex or nuanced meaning. To engage in a true close textual analysis, you must be able to find these sub-textual messages within the visual text chosen. In other words, you are looking for meaning that is not directly stated. It may be somewhat “hidden” or might be only implied. To help you get started in your analysis, look for details within the plot, the portrayal of characters, dialogue, sound and visual cues, and or even framing preferences that might send messages about gender. For this assignment, you may not do any research beyond viewing your chosen visual text itself. Instead, you must develop your paper based on your own ideas. I want to see you develop an original analysis rather than repeat what others have already said. No research information, no plagiarism, no copy and paste. This paper is not asking for a review of your chosen text (i.e, whether you like it or not). Instead, stay focused on the analysis in terms of the messages it sends about gender. Beyond the introductory paragraph, do not spend time summarizing the visual text you’ve chosen. Focus instead on making a clear set of points regarding the messages about gender being sent within your chosen text. This paper must be typed, double spaced, font =times new roman 12 or arial 10. This paper must be at least 5 paragraphs in length and must be at least 1000 words long. I need proper structure, including a detailed, quality thesis statement. Proper grammar, spelling, syntax and sentence mechanics. Proper academic tone. A clear, thoughtful, sophisticated, intelligent, and well-supported analysis.
