Essay 1, 1500 words (35%)
Due date: 9th
The first essay relates to the early weeks of the course about the internet and its influence on the relationship
between global and local cultures, and the dialectics of empowerment/disempowerment,
utopianism/dystopianism that surround this relationship.
Guided by the below essay questions, you should focus your essay around a particular element of cyber-culture
discourse explored in the early weeks of the course, and/or a particular case study which illuminates the nexus
between the internet, globalization, and local cultures. Essay questions will be discussed in tutorials, and you are
encouraged to approach your tutor or coordinator for guidance as you choose your essay question and narrow
down your argument
Your essay must be structured around a precise, carefully considered argument developed in response to your
chosen question. Don’t simply unload everything you happen to know about the topic! Ensure that your essay
does not draw on broad generalizations, anecdotal evidence, or “common sense” assumptions about the internet
and its influence on contemporary culture. Aim instead to clearly position your specific argument within the
relevant scholarly discourse. In addition to being well-supported by research, theoretical concepts, and/or
consideration of a relevant case study (depending on your chosen question and approach), your essay should
engage with relevant scholarly debates about the liberating or oppressive potentials of the internet – think of
your essay as your original contribution to such debates.
1. How do ideologies of technological utopianism relate to Web 2.0, and is this utopian discourse valid? In
your essay, be sure to clearly position your argument in relation to contemporary debates about
technological or cyber-utopianism.
2. Has Web 2.0 flattened cultural distinctions and created a more globalized society? If so, is the internet’s
globalizing potential culturally imperialist, or does the internet allow for heightened cultural diversity and
3. What strategies can be used to resist or reject online connectivity, and how productive or valuable are
these strategies? Be sure to focus your essay around a close analysis of a particular mode of digital
resistance or rejection.
4. What is the digital divide, and how does it influence the relationship between global and local cultures?
Focus your essay around a particular example of digital division and its impact upon global/local

Ethical Dilemmas for Homework
The following dilemmas are scenarios adapted from the “real world.” There are no right or wrong answers per se, but you should consider your responses in light of your ethical analyses. Write a document for the following situations (150-200 words), describing how you would deal with the dilemma. The documents may be a memo to the character in the dilemma, a sales letter to a company, or a short essay (brief response) to me. Honestly, an essay written to me explaining what you’d do and why (based on your ethical convictions…or lack thereof) is really the easiest option. If you aren’t sure what 150 words looks like, this entire paragraph is 112 words.
As far as I know, no one in class is an attorney with extensive legal knowledge, so it would be difficult for you to claim there are specific legal ramifications. If you know the exact code, please inform me. Otherwise, consider these as continuing our discussions in the realms of ambiquity and “gray areas.”
Ethical Dilemma #1: When does a little white lie turn gray?
It’s been a rough year for your company, a manufacturer of special-purpose construction equipment. A competitor has come out with a line of machinery that costs half as much as yours and performs almost as well in most situations. You still have the edge in serving customers that operate in demanding environments like the South Pole, the Kalahari Desert, or Detroit. But for most applications, your superior performance features are irrelevant.
You are discouraged by your inability to meet your sales quotas, which were established before the competition launched its new line. However, your disappointment is minor compared to your boss’s. He came into your office yesterday with a grim look on his face and said, “If we don’t start bringing in some orders, we’re finished. Everybody in the sales department could get the axe. I’m counting on you to win the Simon job. I don’t care what you have to do to get it, just do it.”
You are in the midst of writing a sales letter to Simon and Company, in which you analyze their particular construction environment and operating requirements. It occurs to you that if you revise your analysis to accentuate Simon’s problems, you might be able to win the job. Simon’s management might buy the idea that they need “more machine” to handle their “extremely demanding performance requirements.” You could then argue that your competitor’s equipment is not up to the job. True, in your heart you know that 99 percent of the time, the competitor’s machinery would be adequate for Simon’s needs. But what about the other 1%?
Ethical Dilemma #2: If responding bothers your conscience, how should you reply?
You have recently taken a job with a leading accounting firm—one that just happens to be the archrival of the accounting firm where you used to work. As you’re sitting in your office one afternoon, Susan McDougal, the woman who recruited you, sticks her head in your door, and after exchanging a few pleasantries, she gets to the point of her visit.
“We’re about to gear up for the college recruiting season. I’d like your advice. As you know, we compete for job candidates with the folks at your old firm. What’s the best bet for beating them? Do they have any weaknesses we can exploit? What tactics do they use that we should be using? Who are the best interviewers? What kinds of questions do they ask? What promises does the firm make to lure new employees? What do you think starting salary offers will be this year?”
McDougal notices your look of hesitation and quickly adds, “I don’t expect you to answer me right now, but in the next couple of days, why don’t you jot down some ideas in a memo to me. I’d really appreciate your help on this. Recruiting is one of the most important things we do here.”

SCREEN GENRES & MEDIA HYBRIDS (COMM 2085)
Final Essays 2250 words – worth 50% Due Date: Thu 23rd June 2016, submit via Learn Online Late Submissions:
Essays that are submitted late without a valid extension will be deducted at 5% per week (or part thereof) and returned without comments.
Final Essay Requirements:
Write up your response to one of the topics as an argumentative research essay that incorporates the constructive use of close film/media analysis.
All essays must meet the academic research requirement of 10-12 academic references (books, book chapters and/or journal articles) and demonstrate an engagement with those sources to achieve a passing grade.
Students must also demonstrate independent research on their topic (4 academic sources) to achieve a passing grade.
The following do not count as academic research sources: film examples; your lecture notes; online course notes (from this or other university courses); IMDB; Wikipedia; magazine or newspaper articles. The above may be used and cited but you must still meet the minimum amount of 10-12 academic sources (engaging with books; book chapters; and journal articles).
All essays need to make use of appropriate essay formatting, academic citation (e.g. Harvard Referencing) and include a full reference list and a filmography. Remember: you cannot write on the same genre or film that was used in the minor essay. Discuss your chosen examples with your tutor.
FINAL ESSAY TOPICS
1. Given the rampant hybridity and inter-textuality of the postmodern era, there is no place for genre theories and definitions. Do you agree? Your response should account for both genre and the existence of hybridized genres by drawing upon at least 2-3 of the genre theorists we have studied.
2. Central to the development of the western has been a celebration of its myth making (for instance: the individualism of the gunslinger or the taming of the wild frontier) and a destruction of those very myths. How can this be? How might this apparent contradiction also affect stable categorizations of the western genre?
3. Do genres serve common narrative functions? Test out Propp’s formalist model by applying it to 2 different screen genre examples. Where does Propp’s formalist approach leave us with regards to generic definitions?
4. Genre films are as much about their own generic reality as they are about a larger historic, social and cultural reality. Do you agree? Focus on 2 examples from one of the screen genres we have studied in your response.
5. Focusing on 2 examples from 2 different genres that we have studied – the western, science-fiction, horror, melodrama, musicals or action film – analyse how they represent the relationship between the individual and the larger community. What are the specific value-systems and/or codes of behaviour that each of your genres represent?
6. Explore how the melodrama or the horror film represents the family and/or other social institutions as a potential site of conflict, anxiety and trauma. What critical approaches help us to best understand your chosen genre?
7. Focusing on 2 examples from either the western, action cinema, horror, the musical or science-fiction, analyse how gender affects and informs the genre’s iconography as well as its main thematic conflicts.
8. Analyse the similarities and/or differences between classical Hollywood musicals and the contemporary musical. How do you account for the ways in which the musical genre has persisted and/or mutated in the contemporary?
9. How and why does horror self-reflexively engage its audience in both horror film fandom and processes of viewing? Discuss with close reference to at least 2 horror films.
10. How useful is a psychoanalytic approach to horror? Discuss with reference to 2 films from the horror genre. You may also consider the sciencefiction/horror genre hybrid.
11. Taking into account scholarship on generic repetition and variation, compare and contrast how Hollywood and another national cinema of your own choice represent a particular genre. How do you critically account for their differences, if any? Incorporate the analysis of 2 examples (one from Hollywood; one from outside Hollywood) in your response.
12. Conduct a close analysis of one of the genres we have studied in this course and how it is repeated and varied across mediums – for example, in the shift from film to television or film to computer games. What remains stable in the genre and what has been altered by its cross-media dispersal? Can film genre models still be used or do they need to be re-thought?
HDS101 Summative Assessment Task 2: Information Handout for Workplaces
Within your team you will investigate one industry context (healthcare, sport and recreation, education, entertainment, transport, or retail). You will then individually create an information handout on: “making your workplace accessible for someone with a hearing impairment”. The information can be presented as a brochure, booklet or information sheet. It should describe the importance of inclusion for people with communication difficulty in the chosen workplace sector, and outline relevant Australian legislation. It should also provide a brief description of hearing loss and the factors impacting on communication for people with hearing impairment, as well as strategies for communication access tailored to the specific workplace context. You can chose whether you would like to address the issues of workplace inclusion for employees (e.g. service staff), or service users (e.g. customers/ students/patients). While research collaboration is encouraged, your final submitted assignment must be your own individual work (no joint submissions or identical material).
In this task you will be assessed on your ability to:
- Explain the concepts of inclusion and equity, with reference to relevant legislative acts (ILO2)
- Explain the causes and mechanisms of hearing impairment, and predict the communication access needs of someone with hearing impairment in the specific communication environment (ILO3)
- Generate suggestions for improved access for individuals with hearing impairment in that environment, based on all levels of the biopsychosocial model (ILO4), and
- Communicate this information in a format appropriate to workplace managers and employees/co-workers (ILO5).

• follow strict APA format
DESCRIPTION OF METHODOLOGY, FINDINGS, AND CONCLUSIONS
This section is one of the most important pieces of your research paper. The components of the methodology are: (a) description of subjects, (b) description of the site, (c) research design, (d) instrumentation, (e) data collection, (f) data analysis.
Description of the subjects: who are the subjects/participants of your study? Describe them as much as you possibly can. For example: gender, age, socioeconomic status, educational background, number of siblings, etc. Specify your population and sample
Description of the site: where the study will be conducted? Describe as much as you can the site/location where your study will be conducted. For example: a school, a company, the university, a classroom, a restaurant, etc.
Research design: what type of research design will you use: Qualitative; Quantitative; Mixed-method research; and or Action research?
Instrumentation: Your study may collect performance, attitudinal, or observational data. These forms of data collection all involve using an instrument (a survey, questionnaire, checklist, interview form, etc). You can either locate or develop an instrument. The instructor strongly recommend to locate an already developed instrument.
Data collection: describe the steps and procedures of collecting the data. Tell the story: what, how, when, where, and why.
Data analysis: This section will include the type of analysis of the data collected. For example, if your research is quantitative in nature, your data analysis will be based on statistical analysis either descriptive or inferential. If your research study is qualitative, your data analysis will be based on recording words, creating descriptors and themes.
Findings or Results
• This section includes the representation of your data in the form of tables, figures, charts, etc.
• This section should address or respond to each research question and hypothesis, if any.
• A typical approach is to respond each research question one by one in the order in which they were introduced earlier in the study.
In reporting the findings and or results, the researcher stays close or the statistical findings without drawing broader implications or meaning for them. According to Creswell (2013) a results section includes:
• Tables that summarize statistical information
• Figures (charts, pictures, drawings) that portray variables and their relationships
• Detailed explanation about the statistical results
Discussions and Conclusions
This section involves:
• A summary of key findings
• Explanations for results
• Limitations in the research
• Recommendations for future inquiries.
