Mid-Term Paper

Two possibilities:

  • Write about music in the representation of gender and/or race in a Hollywood film covered in class up to the conclusion of World War II.
  • Take a talkie film from Unit 2 and imagine how it would have been put together, directed or conceived without synchronized sound. This is a speculative paper, and it can consider the variety of ways that filmmakers attempted to control (or not) the sound and music that accompanied silent films.

Both paper options must be based on information in the Wierzbicki text. They both must justify their claims through evidence and they need to have a clear point or thesis.

They should be 3-4 Pages, double-spaced, regular 1-inch margins, in a standard font. Papers must be emailed as PDFs by 11:59PM on October 11th.
