    • I’m glad to read that your group worked well together. You did a good job of adapting the scene, of selecting what to keep and what to change. Purists might not like the alterations you made, but I think you did a good job of keeping everyone in character. The sound effects you incorporated were also very well done. I’m glad you enjoyed the assignment. Thanks for a great semester.

    • Good discussion of the sunken place. That is definitely a topic that we should address together in class. I agree that part of what makes this film so good is that it presents the perspective of people of color and demonstrates, metaphorically, why a room full of old white people can be horrific. It also explores the undercurrent of racism that continues to exist in American society.

    The readings we read this week were “Fish Cheeks” “Indian Education” and “Never marry a mexican” all of them talked about the way white Americans treated other people from different races and them fitting […]

    In Act 2 of the play someone has already stolen the leads that Moss was planning on doing. Ross reacted in a furious way,wanting to know if they had stolen the contacts also. He is more mad because the night […]

  • In the short story “The Garden Party” the protagonist Laura and her family is preparing for a garden party. She received bad news that one of the workers who lives nearby has died and she starts to feel bad. In […]

    • Nice job discussing these stories. In both “The Garden Party” and “The Lesson,” the character cross into unfamiliar environments. What makes these environments different? I think you are correct in your assessment of Midge and Annabel, they are very selfish. Are there any broader implications to their selfishness? What does their selfishness suggest about the values of the society that produced them?

    Waiting For The Barbarians Part 2

     

    I really enjoyed the last two chapters of this book. From the beginning of chapter 5, C […]

    • You do a really nice job of drawing a connection between the crimes that the barbarians are accused of and what we actually see the soldier doing. Why do you think Coetzee draws this comparison? Also, it is interesting that there is no record of the Magistrate’s crimes or imprisonment. What does that suggest about the power of the empire to make people disappear by removing the records of them.

    Y: The Last Scene

     

    In part 2 of “Y:The Last Man” the story starts to get more interesting and dramatic. As Agent 355, Yoric […]

    • Good discussion of Dr. Mann, although it is worth noting that she does not bring the gun into the town, because she doesn’t want anyone to get hurt. Yorick’s revelation about his sister is important. It certainly seems like a loss-of-innocence moment for him. Do you think the version of Yorick that we get at the end of the second volume is different from the one we see in the first?

    • I’m glad that you had a good first-comic experience. Try to expand your ideas here. What do you make of the fact that the only way, according to the logic of this comic, for women to be empowered is for all of the men to die? What do you think about the version of a post-male world that Vaughan gives us?

    Roles and Responsibilities

     

    In the text “Sorrowful Woman” each of the characters undergoes a dramatic change throu […]

    • You do a great job of connecting “A Sorrow Woman” to the issue of traditional gender roles. It does seem like the woman is rejecting her role as wife and mother, while the husband seems to be taking it on. Notice how he begins to do the cooking, cleaning, and emotional care of the household, labor that has traditionally (and to a large extent continues to) be considered “women’s work.”
