There are a few topics I am considering for the annotated bibliography. The first topic I am considering is animal testing for cosmetic use (which I might use as the topic for the next paper). I have done research on this topic in the past and it never ceases to amaze me. Animals, in cosmetics, are beneficial in that they provide relatively safe products for use, however using animals can also be detrimental to society in that companies kill millions of animals a year. I am interested in researching the pros and cons of using animals in cosmetic research and therefore, formulate an option on.
The second topic I am considering is body image and the media, with a focus on body dysmorphic disorder. I am considering this topic as it is a current issue that holds truth to many people. BDD is one of the fastest growing disorders among teenage girls due to the media publicizing celebrities with slim figures while bashing those who are not. Some companies, such as Dove, have tried to reverse this by launching the “Real Beauty” campaign in which they show everyday women against the Victoria Secret “Love My Body” campaign, where are the models are tall and slender. This leads into societies growing addiction to being “perfect” through surgeries such as plastic surgery or liposuction.
I am also considering is genetic cloning and how it has developed the past few years. This is interesting as science is always changing and there are new innovations always coming into play.
The last topic I am considering is the least likely; the affects of music on a person’s psyche. I am considering this topic because my life has revolved around the arts and music, so I would like to research how music, different types of music, affects people, how they act and think.
For research, I am hoping jstor and the ECU website prove to be as helpful as last time. Besides that, any other online database or journal websites should help with the narrow date range.
I have no questions so far regarding the library day, Monday.
