Your task in this assignment – worth 20% of your course grade – is to analyze, outline, Explain the differences between the three social classes in Britain as they exist today, and to provide multiple examples from course materials to help illustrate your argument.
Social class in Britain is no longer based in the old, pre-World War II idea of there being three ‘fixed’ social classes – upper, middle, and lower (or working) class, with the automatic deference and condescension these class differences then demanded. And while social class does go a long way in determining a person’s role in life, the social class a person was born into no longer pre-determines their future, as was generally the case, especially for the working and upper classes, in previous decades.Nor is class today based solely upon income and money, but encompasses other elements including (but not limited to): level of education, mode of speech, and outlook on life and general world view. For example, someone can be very wealthy and yet still consider themselves, and be considered by others, to be working class, while others can live on the edge of poverty and still consider themselves, and be thought of by others, as upper class. Your paper should be in full essay form and NOT just a set of bullet-points or note form of the examples you select. Instead, your paper should have a proper introduction, complete with a clear thesis statement that makes your findings explicit, and a proper conclusion that summarizes and draws your findings together. You should draw on four categories of course materials for your examples. The four categories are: 1) the films, along with their introductory lectures; 2) the sit-coms, and their introductory lectures; 3) material from the Kate Fox book Watching the English; 4) examples and information from the Arthur Marwick readings in the British Society since 1945 book. No internet material!Failure to include material from each of the above-listed four categories in a balanced manner will result in the loss of your grade associated with that category of material (i.e. one point of each of the four on the four-point scale).
Plagiarism (including the unacknowledged use of information you found on the internet), will also be penalized. In short, you need to draw on the full range of materials presented in this course to give as rounded a picture of the issue of social class in Britain today as possible. N.B. – The ‘sitcoms’ are the shows listed as sitcoms on the Syllabus. This does not include the ‘Grumpy Guide to Class’ documentary on YouTube (which should NOT be used).
