Objective: The objective of this assignment is to be able to apply sociological concepts relating to marriage and family to the real world situations exemplified in cinematic situations. You will be able to understand how gender roles are played in different societies. Task: For this assignment you need to watch a foreign film Dangal, which is available on NetFlix. If you do not have an account, NetFlix is offering a one-month free trial subscription ;-). (I am not making a pitch for the company, merely suggesting an option). Read the chapters on gender socialization and parenting in the textbook. You need to understand the concepts that we have discussed in class: patriarchy, gender socialization, social status, social structure, gender expectations, prejudice, and discrimination. Please consider the following while composing your thoughts: Dangal in Hindi means a wrestling arena, popular in the country side in the northern states of India: Haryana and Punjab. Haryana, where the Phogat family reside, is the most conservative state in the country where preference for boys over girls has led to a massive decline in the girl population due to female infanticide. Answer the following questions in a paragraph/narrative format. 1. What is patriarchy? Did you observe anything in the movie that exemplified patriarchy? 2. What are gender roles and gender expectations in the Haryana society? 3. Considering all this, take a stand for or against what the father did for the girls. Consider all the factors. Was he a good or a bad father? Did he perform his fatherly duty? What if the two girls had failed miserably to achieve their (father’s) dream? Whatever side you take, justify your answer. Criteria: Note: Please do not write a review of the movie, no story either! It will be redundant as I know what the story is. Answer each question separately. Do not bundle all your answers in one essay. Be sure to include examples of dialog, or scenes to illustrate your answers. How long the paper should be? I really don’t want to limit your verbosity on paper, so it is up to you. I will be looking for arguments justifying your position on the issue. The paper should be printed, stapled and submitted on Tuesday, February 13. Late submission is allowed but points will be docked by a letter grade. You can write in any format (MLA, APA, ASA) in which you are comfortable. Terms to be included in the paper: gender, gender socialization, gender roles, patriarchy, social stratification, social structure, caste system (implied in cooking the chicken in the kitchen). NEED THIS BY 11 PM TONIGHT. EASTERN!
