1) Describe and illustrate a historical example occurring in the U.S. between colonial times to WWII that demonstrates the development of dominant-minority relations for TWO different disadvantaged groups (groups may include those based on race, gender, ethnicity, class, country of origin, religion, or other status relevant to stratification). You must integrate the course materials.
2) Analyze ways in which the two disadvantaged groups you chose cope with discrimination and prejudice today. For example, have they created anti-defamation leagues, lobbied for changes in laws, created a social movement, or taken other measures toward non-discrimination and equality? (You will need to research this information outside of the course materials; include at least 2 peer-reviewed journal articles no more than five years old)
3) Define and analyze two concepts (for example racism, sexism, stratification, patriarchy, etc.) from our course materials, explaining how these concepts help us better understand the two groups you are discussing. You may find our Sociological Theories and Concepts Toolkit to be helpful (found in Announcements).
4) Define and analyze two sociological theories (for example, feminist theory, critical race theory, conflict theory, symbolic interactionism, functionalist theory, etc.) from our course materials or outside scholarly sources, explaining how these theories help us better understand the two groups you are discussing. You may find our Sociological Theories and Concepts Toolkit to be helpful (found in Announcements).
Pretty Little Thing as they are constantly using influencers and bloggers to promote and wear their clothes, as they know that their audience is young and fashion forward. This also means that they are constantly bringing out clothes that are very much on trend and ‘the in thing’ to wear. Another tactic used by these online brands is to give these influencers discount codes for their audiences as a way of enticing people to shop on their website. “Social media is an incredible tool at the fashion industry’s disposal for marketing. By leveraging social media brands can take control of public perception which is one among the many important factors in fashion marketing.” (Recklies, 2006). By having the control over the marketing process, brands can pick and choose who they want to promote the products and think about who will appeal most to a target audience. By doing this the brand are also able to control opinion and perception meaning that by showing the best parts of the brand and its products it will mean that more people will want to not only purchase the products but also support the brand. Some may say that the industry is manipulative and encourages conspicuous consumption by doing this. Pretty Little Thing promotes several different influencers and bloggers on their Instagram.
