17th October 2017 - October 20, 2017

Task one is my initial reaction to the project. This time period consists of planning and forming ideas based on my interests. I plan to create mind-maps and detailed notes on topics that I would like to explore.

21st October 2017 - October 21, 2017

Task two is the finalisation of a topic and title. I plan to have five different titles to analyse and choose based on my personal preference, interest and access to evidence/sources.

22nd October 2017 - October 22, 2017

Task three is the beginning of formal paperwork, I hope to complete pages 5-7.

Task Four - Research

23rd October 2017 - November 19, 2017

Task four consists of research into available books accessible from the internet or the local library. I also plan to make detailed notes on these on this day. Throughout this time I plan to visit the library and have a solid foundation of research that I can work from.

Task Five - Research

20th November 2017 - 22nd November 2017

Task six involves research on ‘Google Scholar’ to find any relevant articles/essays in order to gain more insight but also see what their work was referenced by. Using this method allows me to access websites and books that I wouldnt have necessarily found by myself.

Task Six - Research

23rd November 2017 - 25th November 2017

Task seven is mainly research from blogs or personal experiences. I hope to have detailed notes on examples of cultural appropriation in the fashion industry and the media. Blogs or personal accounts/experiences may contain helpful insight into how cultural appropriation really impacts people.

Task Seven - Pre plan

26th November 2017 - 30th November 2017

Task eight involves creating a mind-map of ‘for’ and ‘against’ arguments. I.e. how people admire other cultures whereas it could be seen as an appropriation/adoption of someone else’s persona.
