As mentioned in my previous post, all research projects face difficulties. For me, I’m struggling to figure out the exact topic that I will write about and whether or not the topic is feasiable. I had started with the big umbrella of models and China but then narrowed down to model treatment. What I fear is that I will not find enough substantial primary sources to produce a ten page paper. A different shift on the topic is to look more at China’s first international supermodel Liu Wen and her portrayal in China. These two ideas are great starting points but I have to do my research on the topics and really choose a direction to go in and stick with it. Hopefully, as sources arise it will become more clear which topic works better.
