Cultural and Ethnic Studies

Length: 2,000 to 2,500 words
The materials in Unit 3 demonstrate how formations such as race, sexuality, and gender are not reducible one to the other. Rather they are dynamic—their specificity is
always shifting, the product of a complex dialectic of negotiations.
Following Stuart Hall,  assignment asks  “to pursue a dialogue, an investigation, on the subject of cultural identity and representation” (1990, p. 222). In this essay you are to explore the politics of difference and identity—for example, the politics of location). To put it another way, what is the relationship
between the politics of place and voice, between who speaks, and the subjects spoken? Other questions to consider when formulating your paper are:• Owing to our diverse linguistic, geographical, class (and so on) positions, we are variously located in different relations/structures and belief systems. How
would you situate yourself as a knowledge producer?• How do the various elements of your identity influence and determine your personal, social, and political thinking and decision making?• What components of your social identity shape your sense of self/your daily life? In what ways?• What specific world events, personal incidents, relationships (such as with friends and classmates), environmental factors (for example, the neighbourhood you
lived in, family situations), media images (books, movies, television—please identify specific names/titles), and other such factors have had an effect on your ideas
about sexuality, class, gender, race/ethnicity, and racism?Your essay will be evaluated on both clarity and complexity, and should include a thesis, several sections in the body of your essay supporting your position with
