Stereotypical Representations of Racially Marked Female Bodies

Choose a popular culture medium (hip-hop music, or any music video and genre, film, (fashion) magazines, Netflix TV series, etc). Focus on how racially marked female bodies are represented. You do not need to focus on representations of black female bodies; rather you are encouraged to look for stereotypes of other racially marked female bodies (such as Hispanic, Asian, Middle-East, Eastern-European). Write a short critical analysis (2-3 pages) explaining how and why those representations are stereotypical, and what stories do they tell about those cultures. Here are a few questions you can think of while writing your paper: How is the racially marked female body represented? Is it sexualized, objectified, reduced to a particular body part? How is the racially marked woman portrayed or depicted in the context of your chosen medium? Is her identity respected, or degraded by portraying her in hypersexualized tones? How is the racially marked female body positioned in relation to the other bodies? Male? Female? White? How are issues of class, privilege, power constructed in relation to your subject? Does the story of your subject resonate to other stories you see/hear in popular culture or in your everyday life? If yes, what messages does it send? If no, do you think it has the potential to become a trend? The above questions are just guidelines for your analysis. You can choose to focus on some, or you can even add more to ensure you have a critical analysis of how racially marked female bodies are stereotypically represented in popular culture. Remember to write your analysis in an academic format: namely, with a thesis statement (in which you state your main argument and explain (briefly) how you will develop it; one or two main ideas (from which you can develop others) and a conclusion. If you are using academic articles, make sure you use a consistent citation style (APA, Chicago, MLA throughout your paper. You do not need to use any academic articles, documentaries or critical discussions for this paper, since I am interested more in your interpretation of the chosen subject. Yet I strongly encourage you to also read, whenever possible, any academic material written on your chosen subject or topic, in general. That way, you can have a more informed opinion of your subject. There is no limit of how many academic sources you can use or list.
