– grammar: remember – don’t let the spellchecker do all the work for you.

Instructions:
This midterm paper offers an opportunity for you to reflect on the subjects thus far analyzed in class. You have two choices: Either answer ONE of the questions below as a 5-page paper, or answer FOUR of the possible questions listed below, with each answer being at least 1 page in length.
Questions:
– What is gender and how is it different to sex? In your answer refer to West’s argument of “doing gender” and Butler’s argument of “performing gender.”
– In what ways is gender a “social construction”? In your answer refer to Haraway’s argument of “situated knowledge.”
– How is gender fluidity and diversity reflected in nature?
– Who is a Two-Spirit person and why have they been revered by certain cultures?
– Why would a black person’s gendered experience be different to that of a white person in the USA? In your answer refer to Collin’s argument of intersectionality in her work on Black Sexual Politics.
– In what ways have Imperialistic Eurocentric perspectives misrepresented gender, both in nature and in studying different cultures around the world?
Grading criteria for paper:
– Short answer format: Each answer is worth 5 points – so make sure you make 5 clear, coherent, and above all correct points to ensure you get full marks.
– Essay format: Does your paper have an introduction, supporting paragraphs and a conclusion? The biggest thing I’m looking for here is a good thesis statement and focus. A good thesis is your paper summed up into one sentence. If you can’t figure this out, try explaining what you are writing about to a friend. A short description should be easy to find. Then, include your supporting arguments in a few paragraphs, and restate the purpose of your paper in the conclusion. Each section of your paper must contain citations that reference material from the reading or outside sources. Footnotes for citations are required rather than endnotes (use Chicago-Style).
– Grammar: Remember – don’t let the spellchecker do all the work for you. It tends to make a lot of really silly and obvious mistakes that proofreading would have picked up instantly. Also, how well your language and thoughts flow will be factored into this category. I will have to down grade answers that have egregious grammatical errors – so please bring your midterms to the writing center first if you know that your writing skills are not at a college level.
– Style: 12 point font & double spaced.

(it is likely that many or even most people will choose the third option.)

Do people generally conform to gender stereotypes?
We tend to think that we, personally, don’t conform to rigid gender stereotypes. What about everyone else, though?
Ask five friends or family members a simple set of questions, taking notes on the answers.
The questions: “Do you think you are a stereotypical man or woman? Why or why not?”
How many people said “yes, I do,” “no, not at all,” or a version of “yes and no” or “I kind of am and I’m kind of not”?
(It is likely that many or even most people will choose the third option.)
What kinds of explanations did people give for their answers, especially the “yes and no” kind? How do many people, in practice, mix feminine and masculine attributes? What do students think it means that many people don’t feel like they fit the stereotype of a man or woman?
If the stereotypes—which we all know quite well—aren’t found in many of the people we know, where does the idea that most people conform to them come from?
