Doe sanyone know any sites where theres like old and good pips or something? Thanks a bunch
:eek: Oh man that sounds like an awesome topic! I really wanted to do something like that but had no idea how to go about it, and would probably just all end up on how much I love Roy and HG :p

http://hsc.csu.edu.au/society_culture/pip/pip/pip.html is a site with a lot of PIP stuff, the examples of PIPs from here I think are in the Heinemann Society and Culture textbook.

I have no idea how to explain my pip, basically I want to look at how when Guy won Aus Idol it was like a change in reality show winners, like they're usually the typical Aussie underdog battler sort of image, and that's what Shannon was, yet Guy won. So is Aus moving away from our stereotypical imagine, effect of multiculturalism etc. Hmm it sounds kinda bad when I type it lol.

My pips on "the psychology of what women want & how this changes with age". Im not sure if im so confident with it, my teacher seems wary of this kinda topic. What do you all think? Any ideas for primary research, apart from a questionaire?
Very very much appreciate ideas!!!!

Mine is so similar: What death means to different cultures and what are the beliefs, customs and rituals associated with death.

I'm doing mine on slash, which is a subculture of fanfiction (which is a subculture in itself), and the concept of rewriting masculinity, etc. If you don't know what slash is, then you're probably going to have a hard time knowing what I'm talking about. :p

I just wish I'd actually started it though...

Not to stress anyone out, but the official deadline for these PIP's is only one month away!! I can't believe how quick it's gone!! I'll be spending these holidays working on my PIP - I can't wait till it's all over, but I think I'll miss it somehow...

Their history, the social context of the time, how times have changed, etc.

Btw, my PIP is on wether or not the so-called liberated women in movies are really empowered. SOunds lame and cliched i know, but i'm not really aiming for anything groundbreaking, just need to get the stupid thing done.
Picked my topic two weeks ago, have written 200 words.

Cool, i've come across slash for one of my fave TV shows. Getting used to it more and kinda starting to enjoy them! Good luck for ur PIP. How are you relating the slash to society and culture? Popular culture?
