Final Essay Prompt – Option 2 – Curate a YouTube Playlist

For this assignment, you will curate a YouTube playlist specific to a theme or topic related to immigration that we have covered in class. This assignment has two parts: 1) a YouTube playlist and 2) a curator rationale. For instructions on how to create a YouTube playlist, visit: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/57792?co=GENIE.Platform=Desktop&hl=en

Your playlist should be no less than 40 minutes and no more that 60 minutes in length. How you curate this list is up to you, but it should have a clear rational linking the videos together.
You should have at least 4 videos in your playlist, and you cannot include any videos we have screened in class. You will include the URL for your playlist in an appendix to your curator rational essay.

Write a (minimum) 5-page (double-spaced) curator rational essay explaining why you chose the theme or topic that you did and how each video speaks to that theme/topic. You will need to use a minimum of 3 sources to support the argument you develop in your curator rationale. While you are welcome to use as many sources as you wish, 3 of them need to come from our class readings.

Some questions you will want to consider in your curator rationale: What is the intention of each video? (Is it a historical intervention? Does it aim to personalize history or provide a first-person account?) Do these videos problematize conventional narrative of immigration? If so, how and in what ways? How and in what ways do you see these videos in conversation with any of our 324 course readings? (This does not mean that the videos you select have to agree with the arguments put forth in our course readings – although they can. They can also disagree, compliment, etc., our course readings).
Do these videos offer solutions to issues pertaining to your theme/topic? If so, what are the solutions being offered?
How might each video work towards enriching our understanding of your selected theme/topic?
