COMM 103-005,009 & 010 Paper Assignment One 5-6 double-spaced pages Important Dates Draft due in class and in OWL-Space by 5PM: September 22nd Writing Conferences with Dr. Dayton and/or Writing Consultants: September 23 rd -27 th Final due in OWL-Space: 5PM, September 30 th (Wednesday) This unit uses the example of the NBC sitcom Will and Grace to increase familiarity with a variety of academic approaches to popular culture. We have read arguments about Will and Grace from differing perspectives including social science (Schiappa, Gregg, and Hewes and Bonds-Raacke et al), cultural studies (Castiglia and Reed and Mitchell) and media analysis (Connolly). While these articles draw on different types of evidence and theoretical approaches, all of the authors are interested in the effects Will and Grace has had on popular perceptions of lesbians and gay men. For this paper, you will compare and contrast two of these approaches. You can choose two articles that use differing techniques to come to similar conclusions

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
