Drawing on the lectures and assigned sources, write an essay of 700 words to no more than 1,000 words (not counting the footnotes) in response to the following prompt:
How did the relationship of popular music with gender and sexuality change from the 1960s to the 1970s? What motivated the changes? On balance, did women and gay men gain or lose power?
You should not use any materials other than those from this course. You must use evidence from both the lectures and the assigned readings and videos up through class 23. You must write in complete sentences–no bullet points and numbers.
You should come up with an interesting title that suggests the main argument of your essay.
You don’t need a “Works Cited” page for this assignment.
For the correct format of the footnotes, follow the Chicago Manual of Style as it is presented on this website: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/chicago_manual_17th_edition/chicago_manual_of_style_17th_edition.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Footnotes don’t count towards the 1,000-word limit. To determine the word count without the notes, click on the word number at the bottom of Word (“514 WORDS”) to open the dialog box and uncheck the box “Include textboxes, footnotes and endnotes.”
For more guidance, consult “Writing History Papers” in the 00 folder on the Files page.
Submit your paper in the form of a double-spaced Word document, with your name in both the document and the file name, uploaded to Canvas.
