Question:

When crafting a body paragraph for an undergraduate research paper, what two elements add considerable strength to your writing? How?

Answer:

These sections of the typical research paper greatly benefit from the inclusion of synthetic and argumentative sentences. More specifically, the delineation of key research and the synthesis of the scholarship concerning each paragraph topic serves both to better inform the audience and bolster the credibility of the writer. The addition and thorough explanation of the writer's own argument as it relates to this discussion among scholars is also a necessary ingredient for the ideal research paper body paragraph. In short, synthesis and argumentation are vital elements of each research body section.

Question:

Explain how Franz Kafka draws on what Julie Kristeva would later theorize as the "abject" to comment on the dehumanizing effects of modernity.

Answer:

Kafka utilizes abjection to draw a striking parallel between the experiences of his narrator, Gregor Samsa, at home and in the modern economy. His mysterious, dehumanizing transformation into a bug at home produces horror in Kafka's audience--a fear Kristeva identifies as the product of the boundary between the human and non-human being blurred. This transformation importantly mirrors Gregor's experiences in the modern economy, which views him as an unimportant, non-human entity available for exploitation. In this way, Kafka utilizes what Kristeva would later label abjection to criticize modernity.

Question:

What trends do we find among feminist speculative writers of the 1970s as they imagine new masculinities using the utopian genre?

Answer:

The most common trend among these writers is the portrayal of new masculinities grounded in feminist theory that lack traditionally masculine interests in power consolidation and the control of those labeled "other" according to identity markers such as race, sexuality, etc.
