Imagine watching the film you choose with an audience of four—you and three of the social theorists. Imagine them interpreting and analyzing the film and supporting or arguing with one another as they discuss the characters, plot, setting, action , and theme of the film.
What would Durkheim, Marx, and Veblen have to say about the plot and characterizations of one of the many film versions of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations or Hard Times or of the classic Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life? What
would Marx, Veblen, and Gilman think of the themes developed in any of the various film versions of Jane
Austen’s Emma (a modern version of Clueless) or Parasite? What would Marx, Veblen, and Martineau think of
the plot and characterizations of Mean Girls or The Devil Wears Prada? How would Marx, Durkheim and
Truth respond to Erin Brockovich? What would Durkheim, Simmel, and Truth make of The Good, The Bad,
and the Ugly? Imagine asking what DuBois, Truth, and Comte would think of The Help or Hidden Figures.
