Primary data source for FOA

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Are advertisements (and references to movies/shows) suitable primary data sources for an FOA on cultural and gender stereotyping?

Thanks! My FOA is in 2 days!!

Hey,

The FOA is an activity which is based off work you do in class. Normally, your teacher will have given you texts during the topic that you study and brainstorm upon. These are the texts you use for the FOA's base.                       

However, some people have also added other material like posters/images alongside the above texts. 

So, to answer your question, you can definitely use adverts. Make sure it was done in class if it is the central text. Then, you are free to reference and allude to any other media item.

Thank you so much for the quick reply!!

But my teacher told us NOT to use any texts we did in class; she wanted us to find texts from another source, so I decided to use advertisements.
