5 to 7page paper, you are going to use the frameworks and ideas forwarded by one of the Sociological theorists that we have discussed in class to analyze an aspect of contemporary popular culture. Specifically, you are going to analyze the movie The Matrix through the eyes of Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, George Herbert Mead, or W.E.B. Du Bois. Assignment: Pretend that you discovered that one of these theorists had written the screenplay for the film. It is your job to uncover all of the evidence that he left behind. What parts of the film were influenced by their theorist’s ideas? Were there any underlying messages that you think he wanted to send to the audience? Be sure to clearly explain and define each of the concepts relevant to your thesis and give specific examples from the movie. Terms to consider: Please look this up in the word document provided

Peace and violence forum
Watch the movie ‘Ali’s Wedding’ (2018) on Netflix and answer the following in your review: – Watch the processes Sociology Assignment Help The documentary for the forum is about two hours long, so make sure to set aside enough time.
Below is the description of the required video from the PBS website. The documentary provides a powerful look into genocide utilizing a variety of case studies. Prepare yourself as the topic of genocide is a difficult one to confront, but the documentary takes a very methodical and scientific approach for a better understanding of how and why genocides occur.
“By the most fundamental measure — the number of people killed — the perpetrators of mass murder since the beginning of the twentieth century have taken the lives of more people than have died in military conflict. So genocide is worse than war,” reiterates Goldhagen. “This is a little-known fact that should be a central focus of international politics, because once you know it, the world, international politics, and what we need to do all begin to look substantially different from how they are typically conceived.”
“WORSE THAN WAR documents Goldhagen¹s travels, teachings, and interviews in nine countries around the world, bringing viewers on an unprecedented journey of insight and analysis. In a film that is highly cinematic and evocative throughout, he speaks with victims, perpetrators, witnesses, politicians, diplomats, historians, humanitarian aid workers, and journalists, all with the purpose of explaining and understanding the critical features of genocide and how to finally stop it.” (PBS.com)
Genocide: Worse Than War
Some basic questions to address include (as described by the PBS website), but are not limited to: “How and why do genocides start? Why do the perpetrators kill? Why has intervention rarely occurred in a timely manner (issues of politics)? These and other thought-provoking questions are explored in a new documentary film, WORSE THAN WAR.”
As always, I want an original post, and two responses to original posts, for full credit. Work on utilizing your sociological imagination while analyzing genocide. There is an abundance of additional information available in the Powerpoints for the chapter, as well as throughout the semester, for students to utilize in their analysis.
