Asian American Studies

Your paper should: (1) apply the theoretical and empirical material presented in class to illustrate themes and events presented in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, (2) critically analyze the materials presented in class and (3) draw upon your own personal experiences and reflections as they relate to Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and class materials.

The essay should reference at least two of the articles covered in the lectures and relate these key theoretical constructs to themes and vignettes that emerged in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. The best essays will triangulate an analysis of the class materials, with your own personal experiences, and the events chronicled in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.

The essay should be double-spaced with 1 inch margins on all four sides and no more than 5 pages. This guide should be used to help you formulate and organize your ideas and help you think about how to integrate the lectures, readings, and your own personal experiences. You may use these themes and questions as a starting point, or you may explore any other theme or question of your choice.

1. Does Amy Chua present an accurate picture of Chinese parenting or she is a particularly controlling and driven individual?

Sophia says that her mother has said the following to her during piano practice: “Oh my God, you’re just getting worse and worse. ” “I’m going to count to three, then I want musicality.” “If the next time’s not PERFECT, I’m going to take all your stuffed animals and burn them!”. But Chua demands as much sacrifice of herself as she does of her daughters, does this reveal the depth of her love for her children or something else? How does Chua’s description of “Chinese parenting” relate to types of East Asian parental control described in the research literature? What does the research state about the outcomes of different types of parenting across cultures? In your opinion is Tiger mothering- with its strict demands for high achievement- superior to that of Western parents?

2) What values are emphasized across generations within Asian American families?

Chia worries about raising spoiled, entitled children. “Not on my watch!”. She believes that kids with a sense of responsibility, who know when to experience gratitude and humility, will grow up to be less selfish, better-adjusted, and happier adults. What are the supposed contrasts between different generations of Asian American parents in their child socialization practices or goals? What does the research suggest about intergenerational differences in values and family relations? How is Lulu and Sophia’s childhood different from their mother’s, as Chua describes them? Is there evidence of the Generational Decline that Chua fears? What similarities and differences do you see in your own childhood and family history?

3) Chua’s daughters achieve musical success early in their lives – does this validate Chua’s philosophy and child-rearing strategies?

Music is central in the education of Lulu and Sophia, academically and morally. How does their musical training reflect Chua’s theory of intelligence? What does the research suggest about cultural differences in views on motivation and construals of the self? What are the costs and benefits of child-rearing that promotes these views according to Chua and according to the research literature. To what extent did these views and strategies pattern your family experiences? Would these child-rearing strategies work in a non-Asian family setting?

4) Is success worth the time and effort it takes to maintain such discipline?

What are the costs, if any, of Tiger mothering? Chia believes that high expectations and a good dose of criticism cultivate hard work and ultimately a sense of mastery and self-competence. She argues that praise and allowing children to do what feels good reflects a fragile self-esteem. Yet, Chua’s daughters(particularly, Lulu) express unhappiness under the demands of their schedule and expectations. Is this unhappiness likely to be momentary in the larger scheme of life? In the end, is the payoff- a lifetime of accomplishment- worth the cost? What does the research suggest about the relationship between achievement and emotional outcomes among Asian American youth? DO you wish you’d had a mother like Chua? DO you think Chua’s daughters will raise their children with the same trick standards their mother applied to them?

Phase 2 Discussion Board

Within the Discussion Board area, write 600–800 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

As you close your weekly meeting with Deborah, she says, “There are some very good ideas here. I would like to see you continue with a global marketing plan. We need more concrete analysis and data for the presentation. Get your team to work.”

After your meeting with Deborah, you briefly meet with your team to discuss moving toward a more formal analysis.

“Tiffany and Mike, we need to provide a more detailed analysis,” you explain. “You’ve done a great job so far looking at what resources we need and potential countries, but we need to really dig deeper on this.”

Tiffany nods her head in agreement. “Definitely,” she says. “We need to look at some internal variables as well as political, environmental, sociocultural, and technological environments of the countries that we are considering.”

Mike interjects, “Well, that’s something we should consider, but it’s not the only way to analyze this type of project. This is such a big decision, and we need to give as much information as we can.”

You reply, “Great point, Mike. We should look at this from a couple of different angles.”

You go back to your office to update the project schedule with Deborah’s instructions. You review the activities and note the project remains on schedule.

The next task in your strategic marketing plan is to determine the tools that are needed to conduct an analysis of the industry and competitors. Complete the following:

What are the best tools to use in this situation?

Provide a brief summary of at least 2 of these tools.

Why do you think these are the best ways to analyze the market?
How will you use these tools in your plan?

psychosis. However, I would be in principle interested in a public health/population health approach, possibly in the Saudi population, so long as measures of psychosis (paranoia, hallucinations) were included (the actually have a suitable brief battery of measures which includes depression, anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations and a few other types of psychopathology). The difficult issues to be resolved would be: (i) sampling – how would it be possible to get a well-characterised and reasonably large (N = 1000+) sample of the Saudi population? (ii) translation of the instruments; (iii) selecting social determinants of interest. In this context you might be interested to know that many of the social determinants of paranoia and the same as those for depression. Both paranoia and depression seem to be related to self-esteem, and both seem to be related to issues of ‘belonging’ or identity, as well as attachment.Sent from my iPhon

Feminist Film Theory

. My supervisor said that I misunderstood what I am supposed to do/write, therefore I want you to rewrite the section of women in film and feminist approaches to Kuwait cinema. It needs reworking to include a slightly more extensive selection of theorists (i.e. not only Mulvey).

I also suggest that, before starting to rewrite the literature review, you select from the bibliography the books that you want/should to include in your literature review (the main ones for each subject).

What I am supposed to do is to explain what is available on the subject and how useful (or not) that is for my research.
Instead, I give an account of the subject matter as covered in the literature.

For instance:
1) which books are available in the history of Kuwaiti cinema?
2) what ground they cover?
3) how useful what they cover is for my research?
4)Then, for every one of the books listed, write a paragraph or two what they do not cover (their limits) this very important point.

So, pointing out the limits of existing literature is important, because it enables you to convince your reader (which will overcomes some of those limits and present new material and arguments) is original and very much needed.

Sound Quality in Cafes and Restaurants

Sound Quality in Cafes and Restaurants

Restaurants and bars are places where people get together. However, the environment is often quite noisy with music

and conversations often escalating in level. This project will investigate what makes a pleasant restaurant environment

from an audio point of view. Issues such as type and loudness of music and its effects on people’s perceptions of the

quality of the environment will be investigated. The project will span the areas of room acoustics, music production and

psychoacoustics to design and deploy a study to reveal how restaurant acoustic quality can be improved.
