The Meaning of Place

use the reading no outside sources. answer the question adequately. Aim: The goal of this assignment is to write an essay in which you analyze the film, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, using the sociological theories and concepts we have read in Section III, “The Meaning of Place: A Little Theory Goes a Long Way.” Directions: Answer ONE of the following questions in a clearly written 5 page typed essay. Students MUST use the assigned course readings (Marx, Durkheim, Ritzer (Weber), Wirth, Gans, and your textbook). Cite all course related references within the body of the essay, for example, (Giddens et al, p.100), (Gans, p.35); and (Ritzer, p.11); and for the film (Capra). You do not need to re-type the question. Indicate the question you are answering by number. Use a 12-point font, double spacing and standard, one inch, margins. Papers must be securely stapled together. Good answers are those that result from paying careful attention to the precise wording of the question and careful thinking about the structure and outline of the essay. That is, have a clear thesis statement in your first paragraph. This thesis statement should answer your question and provide a brief overview of how the paper will progress. The following paragraphs elaborate on this brief introductory paragraph. Here, students need to support their argument with the course readings. The final paragraph summarizes what you have discussed. Make sure that this concluding paragraph does not introduce new or contradictory information, but wraps up the essay. Questions 1.According to Peter Saunders (1986): There is, in Anglo-Saxon culture, a deep and enduring tension between the image of the “town” and that of the “countryside.” The imagery is that of opposites, for the virtues of rural life – family, traditional morality, community – are mirrored in the vices of the city – egoism, materialism, anonymity – while the advantages of urban living are similarly reflected in the disadvantages of rural existence (p. 84). How does Capra, in his film Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, depict this “imagery of opposites” of “town” and “countryside?” Discuss this imagery using illustrations form the film. How would Wirth and Gans explain this “imagery of opposites?” That is, how would they discuss this imagery in light of their particular approaches to urban and non-urban settlement types? Please be sure to properly identify quotes and paraphrases that you use from the film. 2.How would Durkheim, Marx and Weber analyze Capra’s film, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town? Then, discuss which theorist you think provides the most compelling analysis? Please be sure to properly identify quotes and paraphrases that you use from the film. 3.Does Capra' film, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, suggest that there is an “urban way of lie?” That is, does the film suggest that settlement types we label “town” and “countryside” are fundamentally different with respect to “ways of life?” Using Wirth or Gans, and one of the classical theorists (Marx, Durkheim or Weber) address whether or not the film suggests that there is an “urban way of life” that is tied to settlement types or that what is labeled as an “urban way of life,” is better understood as a product of other sociological influences. That is, are there sociological variables that do a better job of explaining peoples
