While the Frankfurt school feared domination, the dumbness of society, through mass culture, British school saw how subcultural groups would resist dominant forms of culture and identity, by creating their own styles. For Bordieu (1984) “particular constellations of taste, consumption preferences and lifestyle practices are associated with specific occupation and class fractions.” Situating culture within a theory of social production and reproduction, British cultural studies specify the way cultural forms are used to create even more social domination or to allow people to resist domination. British cultural studies was viewed has highly political in nature, with focus on potential resistance of oppositional subcultures, first, valorizing the working class cultures, then, youth subcultures to resist the hegemonic forms of capitalist domination. “The British cultural study has turned away from so-called 'high ' culture in favor of the popular. But such a turn sacrifices the possible insights into all forms of culture and replicates the bifurcation of the field of culture into a
The women in Othello and Chaucer's Wife of Bath differ, but in the end both want their husbands to love them. In Othello there are only three women displayed in the story, but the statements that were said about these three women were the belief that all women in that society were all the same- evil, whores who were temptress to the men. The three women; Desdemona, the wife of Othello, Emilia, the wife of Iago, and Bianca, perceived as a prostitute who is a “customer” (l. 138. 4.1) of Cassio. Iago is one of the main characters who degrades and slanders all women including his wife Emilia.
M’Lynn is the backbone of her family dealing with a somewhat eccentric husband and two wild teenaged boys. Her biggest concern in life however, is her daughter’s health, going so far as to donate one of her kidneys to her when hers fails due to her severe diabetes. Shelby is considered the prettiest girl in town. She marries a wealthy lawyer and becomes pregnant against her doctor’s advice, a decision which ultimately leads to her death. The background colors are varying shades of pink hinting at one of the main scenes in the movie, Shelby’s wedding, in which her colors were “blush and bashful” or “pink and pink” as her mother M’Lynn described it, stating that the sanctuary looked like it had been “hosed down with Pepto Bismol”.
What is culture? By the time we step into this world and become aware of our surroundings, we are frequently fed with the dos and don’ts by the members of our family or that of the society’s.

Non-white heroin 's tend to settle more often for modest aspirations where Mulan is an example of stereotyping against race and gender. When Disney animated films are in the works there is almost always a strong relationship between the father and daughter. A scene from the film when Mulan returns home her father tells her that she is the greatest gift and honor because she is his daughter (1:19:36). Cultural beauty is a standard of women in China which was stereotyped fair skin "Paler than the moon" (48:05).

I discussed the dichotomy between freedom from the government and paranoia for the government. Some characters, such as Ernie and March, are paranoids while Maxine tries to see the good of the government and capitalist consumer society. Besides, the narrator gives us various hints towards both paranoia and freedom. Furthermore, I discussed the Technological Sublime in so far it depicts the real, presented through the family life of Maxine, versus the unreal, mostly represented in DeepArcher. The novel reads as capitalism versus the “Unimaginable Other” (Jarvis) of capitalism.
Patriarchal mentality in Shakespeare’s female characters In my present time, I have considered women as presidents, ministers or leading figures, who have the same potential equally as men, so they play significant roles that have effect on the society in some part of the world, such as, European countries, USA and Australia. One the other hand, in other part of the world, I observe non-educated and oppressed women who are neglected and deprived of their rights to be influential partner with male gender in their societies, especially in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. And if there are few exceptions of strong female figures, they are portrayed as evil and manipulative in assisting the male ruler to usurp the power and rule the country with an

Because these beliefs use equality as their surface value, modern sexism is a common argument with today 's politicians and policy-makers. The third type of sexism is called hostile sexism. Just like the name implies, hostile sexism has components of anger and bitterness in it. Basically, hostile sexism is the belief that women are whiny, sexual teases who enjoy controlling men. People who have high levels of hostile sexism do not like women, and they believe that all women are trying to take all power away from men.
Postmodernism was able to attract educators and university administrators because from the words of the author, postmodernism “questions the borders of education and discipline.”And because of this postmodernism’s fluidity, capitalism was able to co-opt it. What is it with postmodernism that we are afraid of and what will be its implications if promoted in the national university? Postmodernism really is harmful threat given the radical and critical stance of UP towards the societal system. Our history tells us that UP was in the
