1. This life-size glass sleeping figure was made as part of an Arts Council of England funded residency at the Glass Hub in UK. This sculpture showing a sleeping body resting on a bed of cardboard to represent the struggle homeless face on city streets. You can notice that the figure is surrounded by no one, showing that despite how brutal someones life may be, no one would try to help or assist them. The difference in social rank effects how other interpert one another. 2. A similar theme occurs in To Kill a Mockingbird. In chapter three, Jem says "He aint company, Cal; he's just a Cunningham" meaning that due to his social rank in the town, he does not deserve respect or appreciation. She feels very relaxed in his presence and feels that it is acceptable to criticize him.
1. The poem elaborates on how the older and younger generation is judged based off their age. Typically, others would consider elders to lack knowledge about modern aspects in life. However, we also regard the youth to be made of immature and inexperienced teenagers. Both generations are different from each other and cannot fully understand each other, causing otherness and diversity in the society. "The younger generation is full of folly and instability", its hard for people to take the younger community serious because of the bias and misconception in the society. "America has no respect for aging workers," this suggests that no one appreciates the older community because of how tedious and unvaried they appear. 2. The contrast of age connects to the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, because similar judgments are made throughout the book. Scout and Jem often refer to Mrs. Dubose as a old and stubborn lady and try to avoid her most of the time. However, Jem and Scout are also judged in which they are considered to be to young and childish. Uncle Jack does not give Scout any information he thinks is to inappropriate for her.
1. 15 year old Zuriel Oduwole fights for women's rights across Africa, regarding fair education. When talking to African leaders, she strained the need for making policies so that girls are able to go to school until at least the age of 18 so they don’t get married when they are 12 or 13. Her movement demonstrates the difference of opinion of how women are typical categorized . Girls and women are generally expected to dress in feminine ways and be polite, accommodating, and nurturing, however Zuriel Oduwole ideas go against these propositions about how most women should act. "In August, Oduwole was named one of Africa’s 100 most influential women by Forbes magazine". Most of the time, heroes and leaders are associated and recognized with male figures, Zuriel acknowledges women's capability as well. Her strength and bravery differs from how most people would react to the situation, "Having met 24 presidents and prime ministers, she describes herself as “unstoppable". 2. This relates to the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, because throughout the book people in the town misunderstand women and what they are capable of. Atticus says, " "For one thing, Miss Maudie can't serve on a jury because she's a woman-" meaning that he wanted to protect the women in the town from being reveled to something inappropriate.
1. This example illustrates otherness becasue it emphasizes the struggle between blacks during the 1950s to gain equal rights. It reveals the devastating encounters that African Americans had to experience regarding the prejudice and discrimination against them. The theme otherness describes the message of who is accepted throughout the society and who is discarded or rejected, which can be found in racism. Rosa Parks, The March Washington, and Little Rock are all examples of otherness in race, these acts were to protest against the ignorant movements against blacks. All three were disdained and were followed with little support. The text explains "The Civil War had officially abolished slavery, but it didn’t end discrimination against blacks—they continued to endure the devastating effects of racism, especially in the South." People in our society will judge people solely because of their color and what they look like and therefore be treated differently. As long as ignorance still exist, racism and how others view each eachother will continue to be apart of our nation. "Blacks couldn’t use the same public facilities as whites, live in many of the same towns or go to the same schools. Interracial marriage was illegal, and most blacks couldn’t vote because they were unable to pass voter literacy tests." This quote demonstrates and shows other how different blacks were treated due to the color of their skin. It emphasizes how disparate and separate the black community was from the white. 2. Similar themes and aspects are represented in To Kill a. Mockingbird. In the town of Maycomb County, certain individuals are judged and treated differently because of their skin color. Tom Robinson, a black citizen in the town was charged guilty or harassing Mayella Ewell. His race was a significant factor when the people determined if he was guilty or not. If race was different, others perceptive would change. The color of skin has a very important meaning to others and can change the way others think of each other, causing a difference of equality.
