'Their culture has survived': witnessing the (dis) possession in Bra Boys (2007)

'Their culture has survived': witnessing the (dis) possession in Bra Boys (2007) | Year 11 English  BSHS | Scoop.it
BSHS - English Faculty's insight:

Recommended Reading:

An article exploring how the film invites the viewer to take pleasure in the reproduction of white victimhood and reposition the white, socially disadvantaged male at the centre of national narratives of belonging.

..."in doing so, Bra Boys demonstrates the extent to which the testimonial voice, the voice that stakes a claim for truth and authenticity, can continue to be used to reinforce existing relations of power."

Arthur Miller's The Crucible - presentation at teachers' workshop

Arthur Miller's The Crucible - presentation at teachers' workshop | Year 11 English  BSHS | Scoop.it

Via Sheri
BSHS - English Faculty's insight:

A presentation at a workshop for teachers in May 2012 focussing on three aspects of this play:

Why did Miller write The Crucible? 
Three of the main themes in The Crucible.
Three of the main characters in The Crucible.

DylanSmith's curator insight, June 25, 2013 9:47 PM

This article was about Arthur Miller's The Crucible and why it is considered such a important book as well as why we need to keep it in our classrooms. The author labled three main points in the piece: Why did Arthur Miller write The Crucible, The Three Main Themes, and The Three Main Characters. While these all seem like fundamental quesitons the article goes indepth about each one of those points.

 

I think this is a good article because it goes indepth about the core details in the novel. It not only talks about the book itself, but it also discusses society at that time and the hysteria that was actually going on. I feel like this could be a benefical piece of text because it would give the teacher the foundation to build a unit off of.
