Initial Response Due Friday by 11:59pm
Response to Two Classmates Due Sunday by 11:59pm
This week we are starting the Research Essay. For this project, you have two choices on your subject.
Choice A is about the interactions between mental health and masculinity.
Choice B is about monsters and how they embody culture.
If you would like to work on Choice A: Please read/listen to the following articles: Hidden Brain: Man Up (Links to an external site.), “Everything is Going Through Something” (Links to an external site.) by Kevin Love, and “I Could Not Stand Being Alone in My Brain” (Links to an external site.) by Robin Lehner. Since the last two pieces are by men in pro sports, one of the things I want you to think about while reading is how a hypermasculinized job effects mental health.
If you would like to work on Choice B: Please read through Jeffery Jerome Cohen’s chapter/articleThis is a rather difficult articles, so I have provided my notes for working through it: .
Once you have decided which choice you are making for the Research Paper, please post your choice here along with at least two specific things that stood out in the readings by Friday. By Sunday, please respond to at least two classmates. If you have any questions, please ask. (Next Wednesday, you will be submitting annotations for the reading for this project.)
All the best,
