Assignment 2

《王室醜聞》結合了君主制的哪個觀點?你能用政治術語說明這個觀點嗎?它是否和對現任威爾斯親王的看法有關?影片中呈現了卡洛琳王后和她的麻煩,而這些呈現是如何跟閱讀資料中的呈現相關呢?在書面作業中一定要評論到喬治四世單元中所有的閱讀資料。

What perspective on the monarchy is incorporated in A Royal Scandal? Can you account for it in political terms? Is it related to feelings about the current Prince of Wales? How does the presentation of Queen Caroline and her troubles in the video relate to that in the readings? Be sure to comment on all the readings for the George IV unit in your essay.

注意:如果引用了資料,即使是從規定的閱讀資料中引用,都要列出所有引用出處。

作業 3
Assignment 3

長度:10頁(書面)和20分鐘(口述)。

Length: 10 pages (written) and 20 minutes (oral)

要求運用你在學習近三個世紀英國君主制演變時獲得的觀點,調查當代王室的盛況及表現。選擇一個最近的王室事件(專門為公眾包裝的,不是隨機事件),並描述它的重要因素,考慮這些因素為什麼會存在,它對預期的觀眾有什麼預期影響。君主制是如何在事件中呈現?這事件是否鞏固了一個假設:隨著時間的推移,王室的政治權力已被文化影響所替代呢?當你解釋了事件的預期效果,就要通過查看報導和評論,看看事實上是否取得了這個效果。記住,儘管王室成員在國際上也頗具吸引力,但英國王室家族主要的觀眾是英國人,從而選擇你的資料。如果你希望包括美國或者其他國家的資料,就把它們用作外在比較的基礎。不要把它們當作一個單獨且不可區分的文化下的產物。

This assignment asks you to examine contemporary royal pageantry and presentation, using the perspectives you have gained from studying the evolution of the British monarchy over the last three centuries. Select a recent royal occasion (one that has been packaged for public consumption, not an impromptu event) and describe its significant elements, considering why they have been included and what is their intended effect on their intended audience. How is the monarchy represented by the event? Does it confirm the hypothesis that over time royal political power has been replaced by cultural influence? Once you have explained the intended effect of the occasion, see whether this effect was in fact achieved by examining reportage and commentary. Remember that the primary audience for the British royal family is British (even though they have great international appeal as well), and select your sources accordingly. If you wish to include American (or other) sources in addition, use them as the basis for explicit comparison. Donít treat them as if they were the product of a single indistinguishable culture.
