You are being asked to pick ONE media genre (i.e. music, video games, film, etc.). Through the lens of that one genre, explore the representations of gender and discuss, with support from sources, the influence these representations might have on us.
Begin your project by doing some background reading on your topic. Preliminary reading helps you:
Find sources on the topics that you identified in Step 1.
MLA tells us that, in-text citations are brief references within the body of your paper that direct readers to the works-cited-list entries for the sources you consulted and, where relevant, to the location in the source being cited.
The citation can appear within your prose (your written text) or in parentheses.
You need to cite all direct quotations, paraphrased information, and summarized ideas.
For more on in-text citations, see In-Text Citations: An Overview from the MLA Style Center.
Use the links below to see examples of source citations and practice using one of the templates.
