Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything!
Here's the first (take-home) question for Case 2. I strongly advise you to familiarize yourselves with the information from the Solomon book before we watch the movie next week -- it'll really help you know what to look for / take notes on when we're watching it.
Please let me know if you need more explanation to help you answer it.
Good luck, and have fun!
In Bend it Like Beckham, Jess is shown being a member of two subcultures -- Indian Britons and female soccer players.
*Using substantial information from your textbook to support your answer*, identify and discuss defining elements of these subcultures (e.g., diet, religion, clothing/fashion, romance, family structure, career/education expectations, leisure activities, household décor, etc.).
Then, *using substantial information from your textbook to support your answer*, discuss how the members of these subcultures (not just Jess) use consumption to help create identities for themselves and express their personalities and lifestyle preferences.
Finally, please note whether you think these portrayals are stereotypes, and justify your opinion, *using substantial information from your textbook to support your answer*.
