For this essay, you will use sociological theories of the study of cultural production (art worlds, the production of culture perspective, and fields of cultural production) to analyze the creation of a cultural object or form. There are a couple of ways you can approach this:

  1. Focus on 1 theory. If you take this approach, the bulk of your essay needs to describe, explain, and illustrate the main argument and contribution(s) of your chosen theory and apply it to your chosen cultural object or form. Then, in the last 2 paragraphs of your essay, you will need to explain why each of the other theories were less of a good fit for your analysis. Those explanations should engage with the substance of the theories you did not use
  2. Focus on 2 theories. If you take this approach, your essay needs to describe, explain, and illustrate the main argument of both theories and apply them to your chosen cultural object or form. You can either build an argument that one theory does a better job explaining the cultural production of the object or form you chose or build an argument about how the 2 theories complement each other to provide the best explanation for the cultural production of your chosen object or form.


What is the “cultural object or form” you need to analyze?


A “cultural object” could be a specific movie, book, song, painting, or piece of technology. A “cultural form” could be a genre (e.g., comic books) or style (e.g., rap music, impressionist paintings). Whatever you choose, you will need to do some outside research and get your hands on sources that discuss the creation of the chosen object or form.


Where can you find the sources you need to do this analysis?

You will be assessed on:

  • The discussion, explanation, and illustration your chosen theories/concepts.
  • Concrete connections made between your chosen theories/concepts and your life.
  • The construction and support of a single, coherent argument, communicated in your thesis statement. (We encourage you to bold your thesis statement.)
  • Your ability to connect and synthesize material across different days of the course.
  • Writing mechanics and clarity.
  • Appropriately citing others’ ideas.

Remember: This is your chance to show us what you have learned in this course. We want – and are excited – to see your bet understanding of course material.


Citations. In general, it is always best to use your own words rather than rely on those used by the author(s). If you use the author’s words, they must always be placed within quotations marks, and cited with the authors name, year of publication (found on the syllabus), and page number.

Sample citations:

  • If you use a direct quote from a reading, include the author’s last name, year of publication, and page number from which the quote is taken: (Fine 2006:12)
  • If you summarize a reading, include the author’s last name and year of publication: (Fine 2006)
  • If material was covered in lecture and reading, always cite the reading. I understand the appeal of privileging lecture over reading. Your goal, however, is to demonstrate to your audience (me and the TA) that you have done the work (readings) for this course. Plus, you should always appropriately credit the source of an idea or argument. You do not need a bibliography or works cited page.

Writing Tips for Success:

  • Avoid using contractions (e.g., “don’t”, “can’t”, “I’ll”).
  • Do not use “etc.” It asks the reader to fill in the blank. Your job, as the author, is to do that work.
  • Avoid hyperbole and over-exaggeration. The most common culprit is the overuse of the word “literally,” as used in the sentence, “When students misuse the word literally in an essay, my head literally explodes.” Given that my head is still intact, I am either misusing the word “literally” here or I possess Wolverine-level healing abilities. I will let you decide which is more likely.
  • Each body paragraph of your essay should tackle 1 topic.
  • With few exceptions, paragraphs should be less than a page long. If you have a page-or-more-long paragraph, you are either: tackling more than 1 topic and need to split things up; or being repetitive and need to tighten-up your language.
  • Try not to overuse the semicolon (“;”). Just split the sentence in 2.
  • Take time to proofread your essay before submission.
