Blog Post for Jan. 29

Questions about starting the research process:

  • Should you reference materials in your works cited that you’ve read even if you don’t quote them?
  • What citation style is most appropriate for a more humanities-focused thesis?
  • How do you prioritize what books or articles to read?
  • As a rule of thumb, how much should we be reading/researching per week?
  • What are the benefits of doing an honors thesis in leadership studies anyway?

Topics (or questions) I am passionate about or interested in researching:

  • How can understanding the superhero phenomenon in the United States be beneficial to leadership or a liberal arts education in general?
  • How has the superhero franchise in the U.S. changed over time? What does this say about past, present, and future cultural and societal norms (specifically regarding leadership)?
  • Are ensemble cast superhero movies an example of effective shared leadership? Why or why not?
  • How well will the soon-to-be-released film Black Panther do in terms of participating in social discourse around racism in the United States?
  • Was Wonder Woman helpful or harmful to female leadership perceptions?
