Annotated Bibliography Assignment

You will choose any one of the thinkers(Karl Marx- is the chosen thinker) we cover in the first half of this class and prepare a bibliographic essay. This involves selecting five books and/or journal articles that incorporate some aspect of that thinker’s ideas into their own work. You will then summarize how those authors incorporate those ideas into in 1-2 paragraphs.

Below are the 5 chosen journal articles- (the are all found on google scholar)

1.The Ghost is Back, Again: Karl Marx and the Golem Narrative
by Yair, Gad; Soyer, Michaela
Journal of Classical Sociology, 08/2008, Volume 8, Issue 3

2. Title: Pop Culture in the Classroom: American Idol, Karl Marx, and Alexis de Tocqueville
Author(s): Miguel Centellas
Source: PS: Political Science and Politics, Vol. 43, No. 3 (July 2010), pp. 561-565

3.Socialism and (the rejection of) utopia
Journal of Political Ideologies, 10/2007, Volume 12, Issue 3

4.Stardom, Celebrity, and the Money Form

5.Cooperatives On the Path to Socialism?
by Marcuse, Peter
Monthly Review, 02/2015, Volume 66, Issue 9

Remember: All I am asking is for you to tell me how authors make use of theoretical ideas that come from some of the thinkers we are analyzing.(Karl Marx)

with the five sources here is what you have to do:
a. You will have a heading that indicates the source:
i. For a journal article give the name of the author, title of article, name of the journal, volume number, edition number, and date of publication, along with page numbers
ii. For a book give the name of the author, title of the book, name of the publisher, date of the publication, and page numbers.
iii. If the book is an edited collection with many authors, you will give the name of the author, the editor(s) of the book, the title of the book, the name of the publisher, year of publication, and page numbers.
b. Then you will write a one to two-paragraph summary in which you will tell us
i. What the author is talking about (say, reality tv)
ii. What aspect of the thinkers writing (Marx’s concept of class, say) is being applied to the thing under study (say, reality tv)
iii. The way that author is applying that concept (say, a specific reality television program “Project Runway” or “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”)

Note: not that Marx inspires them, but how they are inspired by Marx.
