This class is a 200-level class, and since I have been taking 400-level classes for about a year now, I'm finding this one fairly simple. This means I can play with it a bit.
And because it is a class in Contemporary American Culture, I find myself referencing a lot of Broadway musicals (both American and one originating in the UK) and a few TV shows and movies, and other entertainment media in my posts to the forum, and now I'm even doing it in an essay. It's a class centering on stereotypes and the like, and as troperiffic as I am, I'm finding that I know a lot more of these than I thought.
So far I have referenced or quoted:
- Porgy and Bess
- Star Trek
- Sesame Street
- Lady Gaga's Born this Way
- The Disney Channel's Jessie and ANT Farm
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
- South Pacific
- Nickelodeon's VicTORIous
- Blues' Clues
- Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
- Family Guy
- Doctor Who
- The Sarah Jane Adventures
- Meet Fred
- The Hunger Games
- South Park
In the paper I'm writing at the moment, I am talking about The Jazz Singer and West Side Story.
I really like this class. Having a little trouble with citation though, because I have all this entertainment trivia in my head.
