  • A Day in Cosplay Subculture


    A Day in Cosplay Subculture

    I. Objectives
    This assignment is meant to introduce you to the concept of original research. It will increase your ability to read critically by introducing you to how the studies you consult in a researched argument come into being at a basic and pragmatic level. You will have the ability to increase your own research skills by being introduced to a repertoire of observation methods. This would also broaden your scope of inquiry through the use of methods different from the ones you are accustomed to, and will give you an insight and practice for nonacademic applications of research. Par excellence, your original research will permit you to make a unique contribution to the ongoing intellectual conversation.

    II. Description
    In a two-page essay, you will provide a focused description of the subculture you are studying as well as provide some insight on the meaning of your observation. Your description should be based on what you have observed using a rigorous method of discovery. It could include a description of the place, the people, the events, the routines, the atmosphere, etc. in your subculture.  Incorporate two photographs of the setting in your essay. Your observation notes should also be submitted with the paper.

    Required Format
    Use APA style
    1 and ½ space
    Title your paper
    Use Times New Roman 12
    Leave 1″ margins

    III. Evaluation Criteria
    The substance of your essay will be evaluated on how your audience is able to visualize the culture being described. Your description should incorporate sensory details such as visual details – description of place, its people, and its artifacts, aural details – how quiet or noisy is the setting, olfactory (smell) details – how the place smell like, gustatory (taste) details, and/or tactile (touch) details. Another criterion on which you will be assessed represents how  well you maintain a balance between being an outsider (Martian) and while getting an insider point of view (Convert). Use a clear organization. Be clear, engaging, and error-free.
