Exercise 3.1

April 9, 2019

The goal of this exercise is to identify two possible exhibits for your scholarly research essay

Due by 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11th

Review the assignment guidelines for Essay 3. Your exhibit can be:

  • a feature-length movie (like Last Lovers Left Alive or It)
  • a music video (like Kanyé West’s “Monster” music video or Taylor Swift’s “…Ready For It?” music video)
  • a documentary (like Grizzly Man or Super Size Me)
  • a short film between 10 and 30 minutes

As in Essay 2, you do not have to choose an exhibit that has an explicit monster; you may choose an exhibit that has an aspect that is conceptually monstrous. Whatever you choose, make sure it is something that you are genuinely interested in examining and writing about. Remember that, like Latoya Peterson, you will ultimately focus on and analyze specific aspects of your exhibit – not the “entire” exhibit!


List two film exhibits that you could possibly analyze for your scholarly research essay. Cite them using MLA style. Make sure that they are not the same type of film i.e. do not choose two movies or two music videos.
