Before answering this unit’s questions, you should read “The Unbearable Straightness of Violence: Queering Serial Murder in True Crime,” p. 209 in Natural Born Celebrities.

Keep in mind, as you read, a few of the questions posted below.

Rubric

Online discussions will be graded according to the following rubric.

Full-bodied entries—of at least ten sentences of writing from you (in addition to quotations from the text)—are more likely to receive full credit. Lesser credit will be assigned to work that is missing, brief, or clearly disengaged or sloppily produced such that miscues interfere with readability.

Your responses to other students’ work are also assessed. Students often resist commenting on each others’ work in substantial ways; instead choosing to post simply “good job” or “looks okay to me.” This kind of peer response doesn’t help your own—or your peers’—development as a writer and thinker.

Acceptable peer responses will, among other things:

  • Explicitly identify what was learned from someone else’s work.
  • Ask a follow-up question.
  • Offer an alternative interpretation.
  • Offer concrete strategies for improvement.
Points Criteria

18-20

Discussion posts are completed on-time; they not only thoughtfully respond to and incorporate course readings when appropriate, but they evidence creative thinking and make a significant contribution to peers’ understanding of the course topics. Moreover, follow-up posts/peer responses clarify and extend the class conversation, demonstrating critical thinking. 

16-17

Discussion posts are essentially complete and incorporate, when appropriate, excerpts from the course readings. Initial post is made by due date, and follow-up posts/peer responses engage others in continued discussion.

11-15

Discussion posts are incomplete, inaccurate, and/or late. Peer response is present but perfunctory, offering little “back” to enhance peers’ understanding.

1-10

Posts and peer responses are not made to all topic threads.

0

No posts are made, or posts are entered after the unit’s discussion has ended.

Questions (Natural Born Celebrities)

Choose one questions:

  1. On p. 209, Schmid argues that one of the ways we can stop audiences from identifying with serial killers is to use their abused or abnormal childhood to separate them from our own experiences. How does this work in Perfume? Relate the material in Schmid’s chapter to the film/novel we viewed in this unit?
  2. On p. 221, Schmid suggests that most novels/films portray the killers as sexual deviants, but they do so in a way that implies that serial killers are somehow “not normal” in their appetites. This quickly leads to questions of homosexuality or bisexuality as easy targets. If the killers are heterosexual, their sexuality is never mentioned. How does this argument play out in Perfume?
  3. Throughout this complex chapter, Schmid argues that often the murderers portray a fear or hatred of women as motive for their killing. How does Perfume alter or complicate Schmid’s argument?
