In her essay she is informing her audience about patriarchy.The definition of patriarchy is “a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line” (Dictionary).

As mentioned before, structure is a rhetorical strategy used in Hooks’ writing.

James Wilson, the author of The Earth Shall Weep, takes the stance and stresses the fact that Americans should try to understand the true history of American Indians from their historical and relevant perspective. Wilson, born 1948, was raised in England where he attended multiple advanced schools, where he took an interest in history. While attending Oxford, he became interested in history and fully submerged himself in Native American culture and history. American Indians have a strong grasp on American history from the start. While the
He uses Logos during this section and presents the readers with research and statistics to back up his argument. Finally, Conley argues that the pecking order within the family is the cause for sibling inequality. Different siblings have roles that in the family that are of more importance than the rest of his brother/sisters. This creates a pecking order of sorts in the family, and sets the stage for inequality. Conley uses a combination of ethos and logos to support his own opinion on the matter of sibling differences.
In 1973, Clifford Geertz- an American anthropologist- authored The Interpretation of Cultures, in which he defines culture as a context that behaviors and processes can be described from. His work, particularly this one, has come to be fundamental in the anthropological field, especially for symbolic anthropology-study of the role of symbols in a society- and an understanding of “thick description”-human behavior described such that it has meaning to an outsider of the community it originated. Alice Goffman is an American sociologist and ethnographer widely-known for her work, On the Run: Fugitive Life in an American City (2015). In this work, she relays how for her undergraduate and doctoral research project, she immersed herself in a predominately African-American community of Philadelphia as a white, privileged woman. Goffman goes on the explain how the frequent policing and incarceration of young, black men from this neighborhood affects the entire community and even affected Goffman herself.
She says, “Dad was perfect,” even though the quote provides information that he is flawed by being an alcoholic. Rex Walls made Jeannette’s life scary and eventful, but she continued to love him and keep him on a pedestal. Jeannette 's mother, on the other hand, came across more negatively according to my classmates and I. While there are some extreme situations in the book that are absolutely horrible for a child to experience, many of the situations with her mom were the worst. Sure she was starving and that was bad, but it was the mother who was mentioned more, not the fact that Jeannette was hungry.
In Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, the narrative ends with Lipsha’s perspective as he is told the identity of his parents, June Morrissey and Gerry Nanapush, and reacts to these new revelations. This ending is important in light of the entire novel because it emphasizes the importance of families and claiming their ancestry. This is specifically seen in Lipsha’s confusion and desire to trace his ancestry after being told about his parents and his act of driving June’s car back onto the reservation, in effect, “bring[ing] her home” (367). Lipsha’s desire to discover his family’s ancestry is important in light of the community’s focus on familial relationships, as seen throughout the novel. After Lipsha is told who his parents are, he decides
Natalie Martinez English 10-35 September 30, 2016 In the article “How American Family Life Is Different” by Andrew Cherlin, a professor of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University states that people tend to believe that a nation should be “consistent” and “unified.” However, he also states that culture is inconsistent where people can choose between how they would like to see and view life specifically towards how Americans deal with the cultural model of marriage and the cultural model of individualism (Miller-Cochran, Susan, Roy Stamper, and Stacey Cochran. An Insider 's Guide to Academic Writing: A Rhetoric and Reader.). Cherlin uses a metaphor such as a toolkit to describe how people pick and choose how they want their relationship to be and we can identify this with utilitarian individualists, people who choose to advance their self interest with effort within society and expressive individualists, are people are trying to improve themselves as a person in order to be happy ("Individualism and Moral Commitment: Robert Bellah Et Al." Individualism and Moral Commitment:
The notion of belonging is often divided into distinct facets including belonging to culture, place, relationships and self. The human desideratum for belonging is what defines an individual 's sense of self. Maslow 's hierarchy of needs epitomises that the quest for association and affinity is at the forefront of any persons aspirations. This sentiment of belonging is clearly evident within Romulus My Father composed by Raimond Gaita (1998), Tim Burtons short story 'Neighbours ' (2003) and the feature article 'Manus Island asylum seeker voluntarily returning home ' (SMH) (2014) RMF is a memoir that encompasses the journey of hardship for European migrants in 1950 's Victoria. Throughout RMF it is evident that the ideal journey to Australia was not what Romulus expected as he quickly became a part of the marginalised and rejected within the new country.
