Response to Nomadic Subjects

- Brandotti's conception of the nomad, as a sort of allegory for post modernist subjectivity, is very interesting. It liberates the mind from the idea of nomadism being related to physical disconnectedness and movement, to something more akin to the cultural identity of the nomad, as being in a state of flux that does not fall into the psychological ruts and categories that typically govern our thought patterns. She demonstrates throughout the essay how we may apply this sort of thought to avoid ethnocentric patterns of thought when we concern ourselves with aesthetics, language, and even every day interactions....   [tags: thoguth, aesthetics, language, interactions]

The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South

- ... Stampp suggests that the state of the African American was in limbo, “They (the South) found themselves increasingly isolated… as the code by which their fathers had justified the holding of slaves became less and less tangible.” By the mid-1800s, slavery was no longer widely accepted in the United States; only the South clung to slavery. Because of this, the peculiar institution of slavery became a fixture in the culture of the ante-bellum South as Stampp states, “Slavery, now an integral part of the southern way of life, was to be preserved, not as a transitory evil, an unfortunate legacy of the past, but as a permanent institution – a positive good.” Chattel slavery, according to S...   [tags: polarizing subjects in American history]

Violence in Video Games

Such a result may seem horrifying, a direct assault on our sense of reason, and, perhaps, it is. Power resists the reasonable request to adhere to the boundaries of its own definition.

Modeling Subject Recruitment in Medical and Clinical Investigations

- Evaluating and monitoring subject recruitment is important in medical research (Schroen et al., 2010). Delayed subject recruitment will increase the cost of study and/or can lead researchers to settle for smaller sample sizes than originally proposed. If the proposed sample size is not achieved, the study will have low power and may fail to recognize a treatment effect. Slow recruitment tends to increasing resource utilization, which includes the goodwill contribution of patient volunteers. The delayed recruitment may also lead to delay in the adoption of new therapies and slow the advancement of medical progress (Philipson et al., 2010)....   [tags: Accrual, Process, Data]

Comparing the Sonnets of Petrarchan and Shakespearean in Style, Structure and Subject Approach

- Shakespeare and Petrarch, two poets popular for their contributions on the issue of love, both tackle the subject of their work through sonnet, yet there are key contrasts in their style, structure, and in the way, each approaches their subjects. Moreover, it is clear that in "Sonnet 130," Shakespeare in fact parodies Petrarch's style and thoughts as his storyteller describes his mistress, whose "eyes are in no way as the sun" (Shakespeare 1918). Shakespeare seems, by all accounts, to mock the exaggerated descriptions expanded throughout Petrarch’s piece by giving an English poem portraying the speaker’s love in terms that are characteristic of a flawed woman not a goddess....   [tags: classic, sonnetes]
