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.

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 Significance of Blank Spaces in Conrads Heart of Darkness? - “True, by this time it was not a blank space any more … it had become a place of darkness.” (Heart of Darkness) Examine the significance of ‘blank spaces’ in THREE novels of the 19th and/or early 20th centuries. 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

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.

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. We have resisted adding anything to Pushkin's clean and spare style, with its slender grace, which hums like a taut string....   [tags: Pushkin Queen of Spades Essays]

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]

These people believe that through a serious of coincidence, luck, and their own choices, they can control their future. Others believe in a force known as Fate.

Urban Deisgn - Urban design continues to exist in our everyday lives. The elegance of buildings and their architectural structure stand out in cities competing to show their uniqueness and radiance.

Online Communities - Throughout history a debate has raged on whether sense of community, and more broadly community itself, is crumbling. [INSERT two quotes from early and late doomists] What I see in arguments both for and against the ability for sense of community to persevere is a tangled mess of media. Media play varying roles in arguments both for and against the survival of sense of community, but their presence should not be ignored. In some cases media are blamed for declines in sense of community. In others new media technologies are seen as saviors that can bring about a sense of community rebirth....   [tags: Technology, Media] 1784 words

Southwest: The Dichotomy of D.C. - From an aerial perspective, Southwest DC is strikingly different from the other four quadrants of the city. Not only is the neighborhood much smaller, but the street grid is also broken. While the same rules apply to SW, the street grid is not as rigid as the rest of the city; this allows for more open spaces and serves to make SW feel more like a neighborhood than just a collection of big city blocks. The older buildings that make up a large portion of SW comprise of many low-rise, low-to-mid income housing, and some interspersed light commercial plots on each block near South Capitol St., but it becomes almost exclusively residential approaching the waterfront and far Southwest border....   [tags: City Issues]

Better yet, how can you comprehend a culture’s past which a dominant society desired to assimilate. These two questions outline the difficulty in understanding the historiography of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples.

Negative Impact of Animals - Parasitism is a dangerous problem that causes diseases in animals. Over time, the most successful parasites are the protozoa, the helminthes, and some of the arthropods (Olsen 1962). These parasites were successful because they move from one host to the next, and some of these parasites, such as the arthropods, feed on blood and tissues in animals and humans, and deprive nutrients from their host. Often this loss of nutrients will result in severe internal organ bleeding for the host. For example, “When parasites, such as hookworms in man or trichostrongyles in cattle and sheep, affect the entire population, the effect of the disease is masked and often not recognized…the injections of these parasites results in great loss of blood through bleeding into the intestine.” Moreover, parasites infect their host leaving an escape route for bacteria and diseases to spread....   [tags: Animal Research ]

Hunger - ... To make such an issue visible, Heynen argues that the creation of public space is necessary as it “...runs counter to the usual practice of hiding poor people away in church basements while they get a meal” (Heynen, 1229). The significance of this increased visibility can be measured in relation to the concept elaborated in Baudelaire’s famous poem “The Eyes of the Poor” which depicted how encounters with the visible poor can transform one’s perspective. Although Baudelaire was arguing that it was only his own perspective of poverty was changed, this concept can be used to understand how this visibility not only impacts the perceptions that the middle and upper class have towards poverty but also how the Food Not Bombs is also able to alter the perceptions of poverty that the poor themselves have....   [tags: Social Issues, Homelessness ]
