EXTENDED ESSAY
GROUP TWO
ENGLISH
Language B Why Group Two? Category 1: Language Category 2: Culture and Society BECAUSE......

there is a wide variety of topics as well as of up-dated bibliography,
there are three very interesting categories on which you can work:
Language
Culture and society
Literature A: essays of a socio-cultural nature with an impact on the language

The essay should be an analysis of a cultural nature that describes the impact of a particular issue on the form or use of the language.
Example:
Use of Language of "The Latin Kings" as an Evidence of Cultural Interference in Latin -Americans Living in USA B: essays of a general cultural nature based on specific cultural artifacts
Example:
"Muslim Women Outfit and Discriminatory Characteristics in American Schools"
or
"The Hidden Intentions of 1891’s Fire in Chicago" Category 3: Literature The essay should be an analysis of a literary type, based on a specific work or works of literature exclusively from the target language. In the case of a comparison of texts, all texts must originally have been written in the target language.
Example:
“Hamlet and the Contemporary Man: Similarities and Differences"
or
"A Comparison between the novel LORD OF THE FLIES and the film ALIVE: A quest for survival. "
or
"THE GIVER and Its Meaning in the Building up of the Concept of American Dream in Young Latin American Students" Which Themes are O.K.? Analysis of an article, a book, a play, a poem, or
A comparison between novels, plays, poems.
The exploration of the culture and social traits of a target language context through a literary piece
The research on specific cultural artifacts (such as works of fine art or architecture, films, radio or television programs, or popular music). Main Traits to Take into Account The E.E.:
*must be focused on matters related to the target culture;
*it is a research essay and the assessment criteria emphasize the importance of research skills rather than linguistic proficiency;
*sources should be in the target language.

TIPS… *Definitely, ONLY choose a topic you ADORE, because... You’ll be working on it for @ LEAST one year
*Keep in mind the sort of Supervisor you would like to work with
*As soon as you make your choice, start working immediately so that you are relaxed while others are in panic!
*Share every feeling with your advisor and clarify doubts A.S.A.P. The essay should be an analysis of a more general cultural nature but specific to a country or community where the language is spoken. Topics that are too broad and could apply to many cultures (like globalization, the death penalty or eating disorders) are inappropriate. Essays of a general cultural nature must be based on specific cultural artifacts. Cultural artifacts in this context are understood to include a wide variety of phenomena, ranging from works of fine art to newspapers, magazines and cartoons, to films, television programs and popular music.

Example:
Advertising: Language of Manipulation. An Experience with American Advertising and Consumers
