1.In his call for a radically new notion of power, Michel Foucault says of the individual:
The individual is not to be conceived of as a sort of elementary nucleus, a primitive atom . . . inert material on which power comes to fasten or against which it happens to strike, and in so doing subdues or crushes individuals. In fact, it is already one of the prime effects of power that certain bodies, certain gestures, certain discourse, certain desires, come to be identified and constituted as individuals. The individual, that is, is not the vis- -vis of power; it is, I believe, one of its prime effects (1980:98).
¢ How does this approach to power and the individual diverge from the same concepts within liberalism?
Discuss Foucault notion of power through an examination of identity formation or subject making.
How does the social construction of race, gender, sexuality and class produce particular kinds of subjects?
How are these subjects configured through disciplinary institutions such as the family, schools, factories, militaries, and prisons?
Your answer should focus on at least three of the four categories of subject-making: race, gender, sexuality and class.
In addition to lectures, your essay should draw upon at least six of the following readings: Foucault, Sturken and Cartwright, Bartkey, Meyer, Shapiro, D¡vila, Zilberg, Perez, and Davis, and where relevant, the video clips used in class (Modern Times, Sleep Dealer, Casino Royal, Transamerica, Rock Hudson Home Movies etc.) . Grades: The final is worth 40% of your grade
Citations: While you may quote from the readings, you should select your quotations carefully and use them sparingly. Quotations cannot stand for themselves. You must analyze or explain how they relate to your argument. When paraphrasing rather than quoting the author, you should still cite the author and page numbers.
When referring to or quoting from the readings, please cite the work according to standard citation practices e.g. Hall, 2007 p.18 or Hall in Jhally. For citation styles and practices as set out in the Chicago Manual of Style, see: http://www.bedfordstmartins.com/online/cite7.html. Your essay should also include a References Cited page.
Format Requirements: Your essay must be typed in Times/Times New Roman 12 point font, be double-spaced, and use one- inch margins. Please put your name at the top of each page, number your pages and staple the pages together before turning in your exam.
