appalachian stereotype

  1. Select a visual “artifact.” I recommend an image, an easily accessible video clip, a tangible item, etc. to share with the class.
  2. Analyze what this artifact “says” about Appalachian sexualities, representations of masculinity and femininity, and how gender affects these representations.
  3. Use the article “Appalachian Stereotypes: Cultural History, Gender, and Sexual Rhetoric” by Carissa Massey as s evidence to support or refute the author’s claims.
