with four relatively decent sized papers looming over me this easter weekend i am staying on campus for the duration. the papers are due as follows
- April 24th — Film Theory — 8 – 10 pages. I’m writing on how class structures are assumed into racial identities and how that plays into film spectatorship in Spike Lee’s Bamboozled.
- May 2nd — Irish Cinema Culture — 10 pages. I’m writing on the differing portrayals of Irish immigrant community life in Far and Away and Gangs of New York.
- May 4th — Otherworldly Literature — 10 – 12 pages. I’m writing on how J.R.R. Tolkien’s various works are filled with an almost atavistic sense of history through a frame of English literature in a worldwide form.
- ?????? — International Migration — 6 – 10 pages. I’m not really sure what I’m going to write about this. I’ve only been to two classes.
