Spice Sisters: Religion, Freedom And Escape Of Women In African American And Indian Literatures, Lovely Koshy
This thesis focuses on women in Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun and Rabindranath Tagore's three short stories. Hansberry writes during a period in America when racism, segregation, and black migration to the North weighed heavy upon the psyche of black women. Tagore writes during a time when British control, sati system, caste system, and dharma leave Indian women voiceless. Both express their disagreement with entrenched norms and institutions that have been in place for hundreds of years, a task that initially may seem to be an impossible undertaking, and unlikely to bring about expected change. This ...

Manifest Content Without A Dreamer: A Freudian Analysis Of Percival Everett’S Erasure, Irene Rose De Lilly Claremont Colleges
Manifest Content Without A Dreamer: A Freudian Analysis Of Percival Everett’S Erasure, Irene Rose De Lilly
LUX: A Journal of Transdisciplinary Writing and Research from Claremont Graduate University
This paper will provide a Freudian analysis of Erasure in order to prove that Everett is, in fact, the two main characters he has created, as well as attempt to challenge the stigma of interpreting through a psychoanalytical lens, rather than treating writing and literature as manifest content without a dreamer.
Examining The Effects Of Slavery In Toni Morrison's Beloved, Cara E. Cunningham University of North Georgia
Examining The Effects Of Slavery In Toni Morrison's Beloved, Cara E. Cunningham
University of North Georgia Annual Research Conference
Slavery is a part of our history that no one wants to remember. Toni Morrison struggled when writing Beloved with the natural “tension between needing to bury the past and needing to revive it,” as put by Ashraf Rushdy in "Daughters Signifyin(g) History: The Example of Toni Morrison's Beloved" (39). The characters in Beloved feel this dual need, especially Sethe, who wants to forget what she did but knows she cannot, who longs to have with her again the daughter she killed to save from slavery. Nicole M. Coonradt in "To Be Loved: Amy Denver And Human Need-Bridges ...

Putting It Together: Layout Exercise, Michael W. Hancock
Comics and Graphic Novels
This hands-on short activity (~20 minutes, or longer with optional writing, reading, and discussion components) introduces students who are studying comics to layout, a key component of comics’ graphic language. Students begin thinking about the arrangement of panels on a page or over the course of several pages in comics. Students reassemble a wordless page of comics that has been cut up into separate panels and then explain how their new page constitutes a coherent, meaningful page.

Trans-Spatiality As The Horizon Of The Coming Community: Ethico-Ontology And Aesthetics In Asian Immigrant Literature, Dae-Joong Kim University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Trans-Spatiality As The Horizon Of The Coming Community: Ethico-Ontology And Aesthetics In Asian Immigrant Literature, Dae-Joong Kim
Dissertations & Theses, Department of English
This study centers on the potential scope and significance of trans-spatiality as a new literary concept. I employ the concept of trans-spatiality as a means of understanding Asian immigrants’ transnational experiences as represented by Asian immigrant writers in the Anglophone world. Trans-spatiality is a grounding term and methodological orientation, and its scope is relational and appositional. Thus, previous studies such as postcolonialism, cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, diaspora studies, and globalization are related to trans-spatiality, but, in this dissertation, I strictly limit its use to an ethico-ontological and aesthetic understanding of Asian immigrant writers’ literary works. For this methodology, I explore and analyze ...
Angel Island Poetry: Reading And Writing Cultures, Adam Kotlarczyk Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy
Angel Island Poetry: Reading And Writing Cultures, Adam Kotlarczyk
Object of a darker chapter in American history, the Angel Island Poems (as they have become known) are a recently discovered body of over 135 poems, written primarily in Chinese. These were literally carved into the walls at the Angel Island Immigration Station, where Chinese immigrants were detained, sometimes indefinitely, between approximately 1910-1940.
This lesson demonstrates how history and culture can be integral to our understanding of poetry, even poetry that is deeply reflective and personal in nature; by requiring students to model and produce their own poetry, it also makes evident that writing poetry is a creative instinct and ...
Destruction As A Necessity For Creation In Ellison’S Invisible Man, Alyssa Sellers University of North Georgia
Destruction As A Necessity For Creation In Ellison’S Invisible Man, Alyssa Sellers
Papers and Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research
Most African and African American literature, art, and culture is centered around a type of performance characterized by improvisation and therefore essentially based on greater freedom than more heavily scripted performance traditions. In this way, acting becomes a means of gaining power over oppression by taking an art form that is traditionally based in strict role playing and turning it in to a form of individual expression necessary to creating an identity. Ralph Ellison employs this technique in his novel Invisible Man, using traditional facets of performance such as dialogue, scenery, props, and music, which once stripped of their foundation ...
