My order must be divided to two parts as the instructions:
Part 1/ Five Article Summaries:
As part of your individual preparation for this interview you need to do some background research. Your goal is to gain some understanding about the country including its colonial past and its current relationship with its former colonizer. Be sure that the books/articles that you select address the following learning objectives
B1: identify and analyze the effects of imperialism and colonialism with reference to linguistic or cultural diversity (e.g. what languages are spoken in the chosen country/dependency? What language was imposed from the colonizing power? How does the imposed language shape thought relative to other indigenous languages?)
B3: identify connections between and differences among local, national, and global communities. (e.g., what role does the chosen country play in the global economy? What products/resources come from that country today? What resources and labor needs did this country fill for the colonizing power or the country that controls it?).
Altogether you should use five sources:
ïƒ¼ two academic journal articles
ïƒ¼ one book on the country (that book may even be a travel guide)
ïƒ¼ one article from a reputable newspaper/magazine such as the New York Times, the New Yorker, the LA Times, Wall Street Journal
ïƒ¼ one from a source that is based in the home country (e.g., government-sponsored website, an English language newspaper)
ïƒ¼ do NOT use Wikipedia as a source
Submit a 2.5-to-3 page paper (12 point, 1 inch margins, double-spaced, Times New Roman font) summarizing what you have learned from these five sources. Each source needs to be listed in bold heading followed by a half-page summary. The interview examples in your textbook should be used as a guide for the format of your article summaries (e.g., see pp. 20-21). Follow the American Sociological Association style guide for listing journal, magazine, newspaper references which can be found at http://www.calstatela.edu/library/guides/3asa.pdf . Based on what you have learned from these five.
We have made some minor adjustments to interview instructions since publishing these essays. So please make sure that your interview reflects these additions.
Note that the students who wrote the four model interviews published in your textbook were not required to address specific learning objectives. Still the format and types of articles they used are useful for your paper.
Readings, generate 3-5 interview questions in addition to the list of required questions on 3-4 pages in this file. Place your questions at the very end of the summaries.
Part2 Complete Interview Paper (interview, reflection and conclusion, five article summaries):
The interview portion of the paper should be 3-5 typed pages (12 point, 1 inch margins, double-spaced, Times New Roman font). It must be written in an essay/narrative format (Question-Answer format is unacceptable and will receive a failing grade). The list of mandatory questions to ask during the interview is on pages 16-17 of this syllabus.
The interview write-up should end with an additional 1.5-to-2 page conclusion in which you reflect on the three learning objectives that follow. Again, you should use the interview examples in your textbook as a guide. While you may reach some of the same conclusions as the four student authors, you must find a way to make your ideas distinct by integrating specific ideas from your interview into your reflection piece.
B2: consider historical perspectives on the development of various cultures (e.g., how does modernization theory and dependency theory shape your understanding of the colonial/dependency relationship?).
B4: demonstrate how literature and the arts reflect and influence cultures (In what ways has music, movies, literature from home and colonizing country shape the interviewed personâ€™s life? How did music, arts, literature shape what they know about the colonizing power? How do they shape what they thought the United States would be like? How do they shape what others know about their native country?)
E2: show the influence of cultural and socioeconomic background in shaping attitudes and opinions in themselves and others (e.g., think about what your life would have been like if you had been born in the country of the person interviewed. How would your life be shaped by colonial past/dependency? Think about the languages you would speak, what you would learn in school? What kinds of jobs might be open to you? How is life different for the person interviewed as a result of living in the United States?)
