Navigating Interstitial Spaces - Navigating Interstitial Spaces “[T]he law permits the Americans to do what they please.” Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America The protection of virtue, I submit, requires an understanding of interstitial spaces—spaces where formalist adherence to rules and laws does not suffice to adequately promote virtue. Recognition of these spaces spawned agent morality and Aristotle’s practical wisdom. Fascination with these spaces fueled Alexis de Tocqueville’s inquiry into American religious, familial and political mores in Democracy in America....   [tags: Democracy American Tocqueville Essays]

Play In Contested Spaces: Exploitation vs. Empowerment in World of Warcraft's Online Forums - Recently, research withing digital media learning and literacy literatures has shifted toward analyzing the productive practices in online communities "around" popular videogames (e.g., Steinkuehler and Author, 2008; Author and Gee, 2008; Author, in press; Squire and Giovanetto, 2008; Gee and Hayes, in press). However, the rhetoric of these studies has often focused on the positive, productive, and empowering perspectives of some fans/players in the "affinity spaces" (Gee, 2004) around games. In this paper, I argue for the importance of understanding learning and literacy within online communities around games by addressing the tension between the goals of media producers and fans' goals using tools within these communities....   [tags: Digital Media]

The ellipsis in the titular quote refers to an important omission: “it [the blank space] had got filled since my boyhood with rivers and lakes and names. It had ceased to be a blank space of delightful mystery – a white patch for a boy to dream gloriously over.”1 Conrad’s Marlow highlights the major significance of the ‘blank space’ at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries here - that of ignorance, but a challenging ignorance; a temptation to the empirical enthusiasts of the Victorian era and beyond....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Empty Spaces in James Joyce's Eveline from Dubliners - Eveline's Empty Spaces   It seems highly appropriate that James Joyce lived in Europe during the time of Cézanne, Seurat, Gauguin, and Matisse; throughout his book Dubliners he sketches his characters in a style that could be characterized as post- impressionist. Rather than smoothly, cleanly outlining and clearly delineating his characters' every feature, Joyce concentrates on hinting at the emotional meanings of his depictions with a rich thick dab of paint here and there. Although Joyce flexes his descriptive muscles in the Dubliners short story "Eveline" (1914,) he leaves much to the imagination of the reader through calculated omissions and suggestive phrases....   [tags: Dubliners Essays] 1090 words

Henry James and the Spaces of Silent-Speaking Words - Henry James and the Spaces of Silent-Speaking Words Henry James wrote novels by day; by night he wrote letters. In Virginia’s Woolf distinction, after the “elaborate and austere” labours of the morning, “there remained...the flying hand at midnight,” animated by restless affections and capable “of throwing out at its swiftest well-nigh incredible felicities of phrase” (Essays 204-5). Woolf’s image – of the author persistently engaged in nocturnal compositional raptures - is arresting for the series of dualities it enshrines: the isolation of the solitary, almost static figure whose writing hand - flinging out lassoes of sentences to bring his correspondents closer – yet testifies to the processes of human exchange; the intimacy claimed yet the absence affirmed by the written missive; the abstractions and physical forces of spatial distance which both threaten the fragility and are contested by the strength of sheets and envelopes; the self contained therein - incarnated by the materiality of ink and paper, while being a thing disembodied, discarnate, detached from physical being, and always arriving too late to satisfy the immediacy it craves: “here I am beating with my pen at this poor blank paper as grimly as my wretched infantile heart is thumping against my breast […] sitting here in this dreary London lodging,” so a homesick James wrote to his mother from Half-Moon Street, Piccadilly, in 1869, “I must begin a letter, or else I shall begin to howl” (MHJ)....   [tags: Henry James Letters Essays]

An Analysis of Nagel's Personal Rights and Public Spaces - ... Thus, Nagel distinguishes between agent-neutral and agent-relative values to attempt at explaining the paradox. An agent-neutral value is consequentialist in form: if x is bad or wrong then it implies that we all work together toward a common goal to reduce or minimize x. In this case, it means that it is permissible to commit x to anyone if that contributes to the common goal of reducing x. On the other hand, an agent-relative value is deontological in its form: if x is bad or wrong then what is implied is that the agent himself is not permitted to commit x to anyone, although it doesn’t govern whether x occurs to someone because of what other people do....   [tags: Ethics ]

The Use of Numbers in The Queen of Spades - The Use of Numbers in The Queen of Spades      The use of numbers, especially the three and to a lesser extent the seven, is of major importance in Alexander Pushkin's The Queen of Spades. The use of three permeates the text in several ways, these being major, minor, and in reference to time. According to Alexandr Slonimsky in an essay written in 1922, "A notion of the grouping of three is dominant..." (429). In the major details of the story, we find "three fantastic moments" (Slonimsky 429), three cards, three major catastrophes, three main characters, and the use of six chapters, six being a multiple of three....   [tags: The Queen of Spades]

Pushkin's The Queen of Spades - Pushkin's The Queen of Spades French connoisseurs already know Pushkin's The Queen of Spades in Mérimée's translation. It might appear impertinent to offer now a new version, and I do not doubt that the earlier one will appear more elegant than this one, which has no merit other than its scrupulous exactness. That is its justification. A preoccupation with explaining and rounding off induced Mérimée to blunt somewhat the crystalline peaks of the tale.

The Power and Genius of Alexander Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades - The Power and Genius of Alexander Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades In Alexander Pushkin’s “The Queen of Spades,” many aspects of the short story have made for considerable debate among scholars.  Pushkin fills an integral role in Russian literary history, and there are abundant research sources to use in analyzing and interpreting his texts.  Pushkin is often referred to as the Father of Modern Russian Literature, but until just recently much of the criticism on Pushkin focused on Pushkin himself as the author, the innovative simplicity in his prose, or the political relationship between Pushkin and the Russian aristocracy.  Pushkin’s personal life was often the subject of public debate among his readers and the Russian aristocracy, forcing him into a some what reclusive state.   His prose was innovative, but, in the early research, very few bothered to interpret why the style was so effective.  What about the words made Pushkin different?  It did not seem to matter as long as the aristocracy was satisfied....   [tags: Queen Spades]

Fluid Authenticity: An Examination of the Historiography of Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples, 1965 – 2005 - ... He states, “many [Aboriginal] pupils were kept out of school,” when their communities held cultural and spiritual ceremonies which Jesuits did not condone. In doing so, Zaslow argues Aboriginal local resistance worked to maintain continuance of Aboriginal culture and identity. James Ronda’s article furthers Zaslow’s argument on local resistance as means to maintain survival of Aboriginal cultural and spiritual values. Ronda concedes that missionaries looked upon Aboriginals as little more than “wandering animals,” and used Christianity as a “prime carrier of European values.” Although Aboriginals were unable to fully halt Jesuit Christianization efforts, Zaslow develops their local resistance effort of theological discussion with the Jesuits, “often became platforms for Indian criticism of Christianity.” Zaslow concludes that this form of local resistance, “forced [Jesuits] to admit that religion was a powerful element in Indian life… [and] were compelled to come to grips with both Indian religion and religious leaders as potent centres of resistance to Jesuit plans.” Combined, Trigger, Zaslow and Ronda articles suggest that determining the local resistance of Aboriginals is only achievable through the analysis of Aboriginal-Jesuit relations....   [tags: Canadian History ]
