Please find a film review in an Historical journal and a journal from another Social Science journal (e.g. Teaching Sociology). Then as your assignment for the Monday after the Spring Break is to bring a Review of a film written by a Social Scientist. Please pick wisely. The fourteen articles individually picked by each class member will be the additional articles that become your third “text” (as described in the syllabus). You can also use the link to the social science reviews of films on my web site (the link I previously sent you), but I think everyone will be happier if you find much more recent films that our class members are likely to care about.
