A Study Of Cape Verdeanness In Postcolonial Cape Verdean Poetry, David Joseph Alpert Rhode Island College
A Study Of Cape Verdeanness In Postcolonial Cape Verdean Poetry, David Joseph Alpert
Department of English
Cape Verdeanness is another name for Cape Verdean cultural identity. Postcolonial Cape Verdeanness refers to Cape Verdeanness as it has expressed itself since July 5, 1975, the first day of Cape Verdean independence. Postcolonial Cape Verdeanness has previously been described at length in the social sciences scholarship. Postcolonial Cape Verdeanness has previously been implicitly rather than explicitly represented in descriptions of postcolonial Cape Verdean poetry in the scholarly literature.
This study is a first of its kind consideration of postcolonial Cape Verdeanness. It is also the first time Cape Verdeanness of any kind has been explicitly represented by means of ...

Change One Thing, Change Everything: Understanding The Rhetorical Triangle, Tracy A. Townsend Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy
Change One Thing, Change Everything: Understanding The Rhetorical Triangle, Tracy A. Townsend
This lesson exposes students to the most fundamental rhetorical concept, that of the “rhetorical triangle,” a device for understanding and articulating audience awareness in persuasion. Provided here are suggestions for a brief and engaging mini-lecture, followed by an exercise using two classic pieces of American rhetoric, speeches by the suffragettes Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Students will be challenged to learn the principles of the rhetorical triangle, close-read a text for rhetorical clues and cues, and make sound judgments about the speaker’s rhetorical process based on evidence. This lesson and activity are suitable for students in grades ...

The Cleaving Of House And Home: A Lacanian Analysis Of Architectural Aesthetics, Sarah E. Thorne Western University
The Cleaving Of House And Home: A Lacanian Analysis Of Architectural Aesthetics, Sarah E. Thorne
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Drawing on Lacanian psychoanalysis and digital media studies, this thesis explores the radical disconnect between the home as a fantasmatic object of desire and the house as the space in which the fantasy of home is staged. By analyzing the house as a prosthetic replacement for our originary home (the womb), the aim is to uncover how architectural aesthetics of the Victorian, modern, and postmodern house respond to this irreconcilable gap, and why each aesthetic necessarily fails to create a more homely home. Considering recent trends in architecture, the thesis then examines the coincidence of the “small house” movement with ...
Altering A Legacy: Rewriting Defoe In J.M. Coetzee’S Foe, Leigha K. Bailey Ms. McMaster University
Altering A Legacy: Rewriting Defoe In J.M. Coetzee’S Foe, Leigha K. Bailey Ms.
Open Access Dissertations and Theses
Much of the critical discourse on J.M. Coetzee’s Foe does not fully investigate its relationship with Daniel Defoe’s texts, despite Foe’s intimate relation with them. This thesis offers a postcolonial reading of Coetzee’s Susan Barton, Cruso and Friday against Daniel Defoe’s original characters Roxana, Robinson Crusoe and Friday. Chapter one discusses Roxana-as-feminist, female colonizer, representative of her sex and Amazon and compares her to Barton. It reveals the tendency of critical discourse to attempt to ‘know’ Barton as they ‘know’ Roxana, by categorizing her, and reveals how Coetzee’s character frustrates attempts to define ...
A Poet’S Cento: Reflecting On The Written Word Through Writing, Nicole Trackman Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy
A Poet’S Cento: Reflecting On The Written Word Through Writing, Nicole Trackman
Students will create their own cento using lines from poetry discussed in class during a poetry unit. In a short analysis, students reflect on the lines of poetry that they chose to include as well as their process as a poet. This lesson allows the students to become even more familiar with their previously studied work while working through the writing process as an author. The short reflective analysis prompts students to be metacognative about their process and product. This lesson is best used at the end of a poetry unit.
Urban Place-Conscious Education: Pride In The Inner City, Tamara A. Zwick University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Urban Place-Conscious Education: Pride In The Inner City, Tamara A. Zwick
Dissertations & Theses, Department of English
Many educators are turning to place-conscious education as a means of making students’ education relevant and meaningful, as well as encouraging them to contribute to their local communities in positive ways. While many scholars focus their research on place-conscious education on rural areas, a growing body of scholarship examines how place-conscious principles can be applied in inner city schools. Differences in emphasis and approach exist between the rural and urban scholarship, however. This work analyzes some key differences as well as examining why they might exist. Urban students’ relationship with place is complicated by societal messages which make fostering a ...
