Officer Paul: A Case Study
Paul is a new Police Community Support Officer. He has been working on the team for about four months and during this time has witnessed another Police Community Support Officer making jokes and comments which Paul thinks are racist. Although Paul feels that this behavior is unacceptable and offensive, other colleagues laugh and join in the banter.
Earlier today Paul witnessed the Police Community Support Officer making jibes and snide comments about a member of the public he was cautioning. All the comments were racist (Paul believes this to be so, but is unsure). Paul decides to challenge the officer and asks him for a private chat. Paul points out to the officer that he has noticed he has made a number of racist jokes and engaged in racist banter on several occasions. However, today he has witnessed this again when the officer was cautioning the young Asian man. Paul points out that this behavior is offensive to him and it is not acceptable to others and certainly disrespectful to the member of the public, regardless of what he has done or is perceived to have done.
1 The Police Community Support Officer says it is only a bit of banter to lighten things up a bit, and can’t understand why Paul is making such a big deal. He goes on to say that perhaps Paul mixes with “those kind of people” and that’s why he’s so concerned. Paul repeats that it is offensive to him and unacceptable given the officer’s position. Paul then walks off.
The Police Community Support Officer relays this story to his colleagues and they all say that they only thought it was a bit of fun and that Paul is just a little sensitive. A couple of days later Paul witnesses the banter and racist jokes again and this time reports it to a senior officer, who then speaks to Paul’s colleague and reiterates that it is not acceptable. The Police Community Support Officer apologizes but later he and his friends ignore Paul and this behavior goes on for a few days. They make comments about Paul being sissy and that he can’t take a joke and have labelled him “Mr. Sensitive”. Paul feels intimidated and threatened by their behavior and takes time off work sick because the whole thing has caused him to feel stressed and vulnerable while working with the team.

Do not turn in a transcript of the interview.

Interview with a Humanities Professional
If you are unable to go to a cultural venue for any reason,
this is a good option to choose since you can conduct your interview in person, through video
conferencing or through email. Or, this might be a good option for you if you already know of
someone to interview or are interested in a one-on-one conversation.
For this option, conduct an
interview with a professional who does something in the Humanities. (see instructions attached)
Examples of people to interview for this assignment might include:
local religious leaders that are not the same religion as you if you practice, such as the imam of a mosque, a rabbi of a synagogue, a priest from a Hindu temple.
a local professor in a Humanities field
a local visual artist, musician, or member of a band who is somewhat well known
the curator of a local art museum or the archivist at an art museum
the educational outreach coordinator or the director of a local community arts center
• a local published author or book illustrator
a director from a local theater, a member of a local improv group, or an actor who performs regularly in community theater productions
When you have a conversation with this person, you can ask specific questions, or you can let the conversation itself lead you to the questions you want to ask. Try to focus, however, on talking about the field of the Humanities the person is in and what they do, and try to learn something new.
Using information from your interview, write a 850-1000 word report that summarizes what you learned during your interview. Do not turn in a transcript of the interview.
Please try to keep your paper to 1000 words or less.
Your report should include the following.
Name and position of the person. If they are not comfortable providing this, please state this and provide some general background information about the person instead.
A description of the person’s connection to the Humanities–what are they (author, priest, director, artist etc.) including how long they have been involved with the Humanities, their training (if any) and how they got involved with the Humanities.
A description of one aspect of the interview that you found especially interesting. This is going to come from the conversation you have and the questions you ask. For example, you might write a particular piece of work by this person that struck you if they are an artist. You might write about the person’s responsibilities as an art museum curator. You might talk about the challenges of a religious leader’s responsibilities of working with many kinds of people.
A specific connection between something you learned in the interview to one specific piece of information from the class. For example, if you spoke to the lighting director of a community theater, you may have learned how they use colored lights on the stage. Then you can connect this to some of the information about color theory in the resources on Visual Arts.
Highlight the connection you are making between your interview and the course material by underlining or bolding a small part of the section where you are making your connection.
Include a quote or paraphrase from the learning resources for the information you are using from class to connect to the interview.
A reflection on the relevance of your interview experience to your everyday life, to the community or locality, or to Humanities in general. Think about how the experience engaged your feelings or emotions, how the experience taught you something you really didn’t know about the Humanities, and how the experience showed you the relevance of the Humanities in the world. You can also consider what this interview informed you about yourself and human beings in general.
In text citations as needed and a bibliography with MLA citations for any references you used.
One of your bibliography entries should be for the interview itself.

Telenovelas are an integral part of the Latino family. Women that work at home watch several novelas a day. Spanish television channels show them Monday through Friday almost all day long. There is a brief interruption to show the news and talk shows in the afternoon. These novelas last from 6 months to a year. The theme good versus evil is always present. Viewers divide the characters between “Buenos” and “malos”, good and evil.
<
Several years ago, Colombia produced a telenovela titled Betty la fea. The TV show Ugly Betty was based on this novela. It was so popular that nothing of importance was done during the time the telenovela aired. Everyone watched it, including men. A new version aired in 2019 titled Betty in New York. I provided a link to the first chapter in your video clips for the week.

In 2011 a new type of telenovela /series was aired, La reina del sur.
