Hi, guys. As some of you know I'm a university student and my major is English. Now, in order to finish my studies, I have to write a 30 - 40 page thesis. I should have been working on this for ages but being the stupid lazy slob that I am, I kept neglecting it, as well as my other school stuff and procrastinated by working on my edits. Actually, I was hoping to have the edit done by now, so I could take a break from editing and work on it but it didn't exactly work out. Now I'm going to need your help to get this done as quickly as possible, because the deadline is getting dangerously close, which I didn't realize (I thought the deadline was a month later than it actually is).
Why I think you can help is because I was lucky enough to be able to choose STAR WARS as my topic (under the subject of "American Cutural Studies.") My topic is something along the lines of "STAR WARS, American Cultural Heritage."
I'd like to analyse what it it is that makes STAR WARS such a great cultural phenomenon and underline its importance as an American cultural landmark.
It's a little absurd that they want us to show critical thinking in the work but at the same time we have to back every single idea with a citation, so I need sources, lots of them. I turn to you because I know this place is an incredible well of knowledge on this subject and there are people here who can point me to the exact right places. I need quotations from documentaries, film historians, academic books etc.
The thing is, I need the exact places, it's like I've read The Secret History of Star Wars (and it was awesome too) but if I was to find some quote in there, I'd be quite lost.
If you can help, please post here but keep any discussion about the edit in the Despecialized Edition thread, I need this thread to stay on topic.
Help me, OT.com, you're my only hope!
