Lora E. Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” is, for the most part, a clear example of writing in the social sciences, while John Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” follows the writing conventions for the humanities discipline. Writing in the social sciences and humanities present different ideas and perform different tasks for their readers; Vess’s article tended to guide the reader through her conducted experiment, and she writes to achieve her goals. Streamas’s article presented the reader with his opinions on the subject, and was intended to almost persuade the reader to think about what exactly he is saying. Writing in the humanities and social sciences will almost always have different rhetorical situations, and Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” and Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” clearly divide the line between the two
She has written many books on race, gender, politics, and popular culture.

It asks us to read the image, as Elizabeth Alexander wants us to, not simply as an image of something that has happened, but also the history that led to the incident being captured. The text that accompanies the images seem to be trying to give us a way to talk about these people and incidents and how race, while a construct, still has real effects in the daily lives of so many. Alexander asks what people do with their histories of horror? Citizen answers back that “You can’t put the past behind you. It’s buried in you..”
How did we deceive ourselves into thinking hurting ourselves will help us? Personally, I can relate to a lot of the reasons stated by those interviewed. I will pick a few of my top general reasonings and explore deeper about what goes through my mind. I want to show how you are not alone with your thoughts. You are not so far out/abnormal, a bad person, nor are you crazy.
In this essay, it says that Samuel Eliot Morison wrote about how important learning history is, “So, too, we ought to read history because it breaks down dividers between the disciplines of science, medicine, philosophy, art, and music, which is all part of the human story.” I find it truly fascinating how much one can learn all from studying history. This point could go along with the culture and society theme. In each subject that goes along with history, there are different cultures that make its background. Since they all go into history, this shows that history is full of different cultures and
John Wilson was based upon an infamous scandal at the turn of the century which Simmie was inspired by. This novel demonstrates a mix of early Canadian immigration, RCMP history and a major crime. Being native to the province, Simmie wanted to share this local tragedy with the rest of the world. This
Holocaust survivor testimonials are vital to today’s society because they suffered and atrocity and it is important to educate people of what happened first hand. To begin with, the Holocaust is a contemporary issue because it demonstrates the atmosphere in which genocide can take place. These people had to endure prejudices which were illogical and unfair. Anti semitism remains in our society to an extent. It is therefore important to remember the Holocaust because it is an example of how these trends could evolve into something far more threatening.
I enjoyed reading your literature review and I can see you have obviously put a lot of work into this. My goal is to provide you effective feedback about concerns/suggestions I have as a reader. Although I will provide critical feedback, the objective is to give you ways to rethink for draft 1.2 You start the introduction with an engaging attention-getter that states “Political music has been prevalent in society since the 1800s, beginning with slave hymnals”; this statement shows the significance/importance of the research issue. After that you even introduce a broad view about the research topic by stating “According to recent publications…”.
Analysis, Critics, & Suggestion The paper of Oonagh Rietman is delivering very interesting issue. Where he focused on how cultural relativist and feminist critique towards the international human right. While at the same time culture relativist and feminist quite against each other in their point of view about women. In the paper author provide enough argument and data to support the topic, so that the reader can understand the topic that he deliver very well.
Rhetorical Strategies Logos, Pathos, Ethos With ethos being the main rhetorical strategy in this article, the author relies on the credibility of professors who study generational changes to engage the reader in understanding the reasons for changing sexual views. By saying, "Ryne Sherman from Florida Atlantic University and Brooke E. Wells from Hunter College" ("Changing Attitudes," 2015 para. 2) the author makes the reader feel a sense of reassurance as professors are normally seen as experts. Authors generally use statistics from professors of known and unknown colleges and universities in order to strengthen their own credibility. Logos was a prominent rhetorical strategy used in the article as well.
Overall, in Canada, the role of the Supreme Court has be altered numerous times since 1982 (and a bit before that) in order to make our country the way it is today. In the end, through trying British tradition and American liberalism, Canada eventually found its own approach of managing our judicial
I would allow students to remap Canada related to identity. Student’s will be able to build on their own family background, ethnic groups, family experience, food etc. I would provide students with my example, but also encourage students imagine Canada how they see it. However, I would urge students to use primary and secondary sources to back up their argument. Bahbahani & Hyun (2008) argue “major step in embedding geographical thinking resides in making the curriculum problematic so that the study of geography is more a matter of challenges to thin through than it is information to be remembered” (p.3).
Barnetson presents a unique and fresh voice into the space of workplace injury compensation. Instead of beginning with a long list of complaints and critiques, he first provides a historical context on the development of injury compensation and weaves the political drivers into what Canada currently has in place. This allows the reader to come to a conclusion without being coerced or swayed by the author’s own opinion or experience. He then applies relevant, contemporary data and statistics, mixed in with interview snippets and real headlines of today to further demonstrate his point of the shortcomings of the workers’ compensation system. Where necessary, he does use explanation marks and ironic conclusions to drive his arguments
