Mary Louise Pratt’s, “The Arts of the Contact Zones” challenges the simplicity of a standard community as she relates the difference between multiple cultures through her idea of a contact zone. Although many stereotypes with negative connotations exist, having Pan-Hellenic influences on campus help to build a stronger Santa Clara. Entering college is a big deal in itself, but my choice to rush into a women’s fraternity allowed me the exclusivity of a smaller community, within the Santa Clara campus and on a national scale. Upon joining Delta Gamma (DG), I realized that my efforts to make friends was simplified. Within my society, there were girls that naturally clicked and we were fostered into strong relationships without questioning our motives.
The purpose of the essay “I Want a Wife,” is to describe the many stereotypes women can be classified as in our everyday world. One literary element being used in the essay that I have identified would be the use of the writers plot creation. The writer did significant work using her own experiences and imaginary situation in order to engage the reader. She used Humor in order to demonstrate her hypothetical point of view. It is my opinion the writer used this element well, as it grabbed my attention and made it a fun and interesting reading.
In the introduction, Cather’s description of Jim could easily be a description of herself. It is possible that Cather has camouflaged herself as Jim Burden in My Ántonia because many of Jim’s thoughts and feelings in the novel were Cather’s own thoughts and feelings while growing up. Also, like Jim, Cather enjoyed visiting with immigrant neighbors, she had a love for the classics and for drama; and, like Jim, when he was middle-aged, she revisited “Ántonia” A.K.A. Anna Sadilek, her model for the character Ántonia, and renewed their friendship. This reunion inspired Cather to begin writing My Ántonia.
There also seems to be encouragement from other sources including Seamus MacManus and the publication of both W.B. Yeats' Autobiographies and Dorothy Macardle's The Irish Republic. She was encouraged by the great reception of the two aforementioned books and especially in the fact that another female author writing about her life had been accepted. McManus was writing his autobiography at the time and he thought Maud could make money off of her autobiography which for her was running low at the time. Another aspect that seems to make sense is that Maud was trying to "shape her legacy
Getting dressed up in the weirdest attires and going to different bars downtown. While these are fun, they are not the true meaning of the social connection you develop while being in a sorority. The social network that comes as soon as you enter into a sorority is something that you cannot find the same anywhere else. Find social network from Zeta Pi The idea of alumnae relationship is something that my sorority does its best to uphold and strives for the best for all members. A key example of this from within Delta Zeta is Kaelin Caldwell, she is
Gilligan wrote her first novel in 2008 called “Kyra”. This story had to do about a love story and the tension of high emotions. Her contributions were very significant to her field of cognitive perspectives of females and males. During Gillian time she was not taken into much consideration because in her time women weren’t considered equal to men and most of the colleges at that time was men only. But during the late 1950’s early 1960’s Gillian was able to get into well-known Ivy
The Namesake Relationships can teach a person more about themselves, and who they are. In The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, she shows how Gogol suffers an identity crisis, but throughout his romantic relationships he learns to accept his background. Gogol’s three girlfriends Ruth, Maxine, and Moushumi, all teach Gogol a lesson and help him discover how he feels about his Bengali culture. Gogol had never been the kid to have many girlfriends, but at a college party one night, Gogol met an American girl named Ruth, and they immediately grew fond of each other. Ruth was Gogol’s first serious relationship, but she was not what Gogol’s parents approved of.
Rita's ultimate goal is to change classes; she doesn't want to be dubbed 'middle class,' and enrolls in an Open University course as a result. She thinks that knowing what books to read and which clothes to wear will give her access to her chosen social strata. This change affects her both positively and negatively throughout the course of the play. Rita is obviously a working class person, in a society that isn’t really interested in literature and doesn’t like it while Frank is a middle-class person, a society where literature is important but Frank is getting bored of it. Rita is trying to move up a class through doing this course.
I also believe that because the graphic novel contains many pictures, the novel becomes more enjoyable for the reader. In writing my own graphic novel, I found that I was able to use color pictures to show the passions felt with the characters in the story. Using words and depictions, a graphic novel allows the writer to express more. For instance, Marjane Satrapi, the author of Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, was not allowed to speak out against the Iranian government. Even though she lived in France and could not bear consequences, her family in Iran could still receive punishment for Satrapi’s use of words.
