Hip Hop's Inheritance: From the Harlem Renaissance to the Hip Hop Feminist Movement. 1st ed. Lanham, MD: Lexington Books. How do women incorporate themselves into the world of Hip Hop dance? What are the performative strategies that they use? Can the use of mimicry create resistance to misogyny within the culture? In this dissertation I argue that Hip Hop dance can be used to effectively create positive female identity. These sources specifically look at the more current feminist approach to Hip Hop Dissertation Proposal Began in 2004 Mission: "Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival exists to develop and provide women with positive roles that are present and represented within the Hip-Hop culture. " Taught by women, for women Qualified teachers pass on the culture of Hip Hop with 'authenticity and accuracy' Consists of workshops, performances, artist exchanges and public talks. These sources will help me to critically analyze Hip Hop dance from a Feminist Lens, specifically in reference to Intersectionality. Ethnographic Sources Feminist Theory I will be interviewing leading female (as well as a few male) Hip Hop dancers in the industry to see what their perspective on the issue is.

Transcript: Dissertation Proposal Preliminary Steps - 'The fundamental Idea' Plenty of evidence and extensive research to suggest the harmful effects of advertising on women.... But what about men? Why Grounded theory? Grounded theory will be the fundamental qualitative approach throughout the research project. What have I already established? Supporting Literature A Grounded Theory approach will be used in order to further understand and elaborate on literature that already exists regarding the effect of visual advertising on Males. - An abundance already exists on the effect of females, but little has been done to establish whether males are equally as effected. Grounded theory is the process whereby theory is discovered through the analysis of data, operating in reverse from the traditions of social scientific research. It has been established that Grounded Theory is the most appropriate method, in order to understand the emotional effect of advertising on males at an individual level.

Pg 92 He stared at me again, meeting my eyes with the strangest expression on his face - it was hostile, furious. Pg23 No, the very worst was feeling . . . knowing that I couldn’t stop. Believing that I was going to kill you myself.” Pg 472 "If you were anywhere near me when I lost control that way…" He shook his head, still gazing morosely at the heavy clouds. "Bring on the shackles - I'm your prisoner." But his long hands formed manacles around my wrists as he spoke. Pg 302 "That's certainly a problem. But that's not what I was thinking of. It's just that you are so soft, so fragile. I have to mind my actions every moment that we're together so that I don't hurt you. I could kill you quite easily, Bella, just by accident." Pg 310 "Sometimes I have a problem with my temper, Bella" Pg 164 "It's not only your company I crave! Never forget that. Never forget I am more dangerous to you than I am to anyone else." Pg 266 Twilight/Stalking "As if you could outrun me," he laughed bitterly. He reached up with one hand and, with a deafening crack, effortlessly ripped a two-foot-thick branch from the trunk of the spruce. "As if you could fight me off," he said gently. Pg 264 Finally "You need a healthy dose of fear. Nothing could be more beneficial for you." Pg 216
Transcript: 1) To examine the effects of input modes on listening comprehension - Previous studies examined how listening modes affect learners’ preferences but not listening comprehension - EFL learners and teacher’s good use of modes 2) To investigate the effects of listening text types on listening comprehension - Text types has been proved influential on listening comprehension (Rubin, 1994; Shohamy & Inbar, 1991 - No study addressed the influence of different types of listening - In order to assist in and facilitate EFL listening learning and teaching 3) To explore the effects of input modes and text types on some affective aspects in CALL listening - Previous studies reported learners’ reaction to input modes or text types generally but not specifically - Compare with the actual effects of input modes and text types -> shed light on listening learning, teaching, development of EFL CALL listening 1.How do different modes of input (i. e., listening only, listening with subtitles, & listening with transcripts) and varying listening text types (i. e., dialogue, & lecture) affect learners’ listening performance in CALL? 1) Do different input modes have any effect on learners’ listening performance? 2) Do different listening text types influence learners’ listening performance? 3) Do different input modes and listening text types affect listening performance interactively? 2.How do the use of varying input modes and text types in CALL influence learners’ listening performance across the various levels of English language proficiency (high and low proficiency levels)? 1) Do the effects of different modes of input vary between two language proficiency levels? 2) Do the effects of different types of texts differ between two language proficiency levels? 3) Are there interactive effects of different input modes, text types, and learner’s language proficiency on their listening performance? 3.How do learners perceive different modes of input and text types in CALL listening in four aspects: concentration, comprehension, memory and reduced anxiety? 1) Do the varying text types affect learners’ reaction to the four aspects? If so, are there any different effects between two language proficiency levels? 2) Do the various input modes have effects on learners’ responses to the four aspects? If any, are the effects different between two language proficiency levels? 3) What do learners prefer for their future learning of listening? A. Theoretical Background - Osada (2001): Awareness of form-meaning relationships and word recognition skills - Vandergrift ( 2007): Lower-proficiency groups -> auditory discrimination skills / higher-proficiency groups -> refined word recognition - Chang (2009): improved listening comprehension, accurate language use and stronger preference for reading-while-listening mode (modes: reading-while-listening & listening-only => Current study: oral text and two written verification modes (i. e., subtitles and transcripts) - Input enhancement: direct learners to notice linguistic input efficiently (Sharwood Smith, 1993) - Input modification: makes input understandable to learners through images, L1 translation, L2 dictionary definitions, and simplification (Chapelle, 2003) - Expended definition of input modification: any form to clarify meaning for listeners (i. e., simplification, repetition, clarification, and L2 translation) (Larsen-Freeman & Long, 1991) => Current study: using modified input (i. e., subtitles and transcripts) to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of different text types of listening in CALL environment - Cognitive load: the total amount of mental activity that performing a particular task imposes on the learner’s working memory (Paas & Van Merrienboer, 1994) - CLT: addressed also its pedagogical implications on instructional design, based on our knowledge of human cognitive architecture (Sweller, 2005) - Three different kinds of cognitive load: intrinsic, extraneous, and germane (Paas, Renkl, & Sweller, 2003; Paas, Tuovinen, Tabbers, & Van Gerven, 2003; Sweller, 2007; Van Merrienboer & Ayres, 2005) => Current study: examines how input modes and text types will affect cognitive load and make a constructive pedagogical suggestion - Rost (2011): five listening genres (i.e., narrative, descriptive, comparison/contrast, casual/evaluation, and problem solving) -> Mostly involved in research on L1 listening but not L2 listening research - Most research for L2 listening: news broadcasts, lectures, interviews, and dialogues and compare the effects of text types on EFL listening (Shohamy & Inbar, 1991; Berne, 1992) - Shohanmy & Inbar (1991): news broadcasts, lectures, and dialogues for listening texts => Current study: dialogues and lectures (with academic-based contents) a. The lecture: a monologue delivered for the sake of instruction b. The dialogue: a conversation between two people to address and solve a problem B. Review of Previous Research - Three major trends of research on
