Use Edward Said and or any of the other readings FROM THE COURSE as reference material. Make sure that these are referenced (APA) and don’t take up alot of your paper. I’m interested in what YOU have to say. So if you use a reference, it should support YOUR own argument. 1) Can you think of examples that show the 'Orient' as 'Other or Otherized’'? As 'strange', 'exotic', 'different', 'inferior' or excluded? Think of examples from your own life or from media - including film, news, the internet, art etc. Give at least three arguments with clear statements/facts and three examples for each argument. 2) Why would a “representation” of the Orient have a “privileged communal significance... for the West”? What does “representation” mean in this sentence? What does “privileged” mean when used in this way? Make at least three arguments with clear statements/facts and examples. 3) Three conceptual elements that comprise Orientalism: are a) the Western view of Orientalism, b) Essentialism and c) Representationalism. Representations can never be completely accurate; representations are necessarily selective and subjective. Representations create a new reality. Discuss this statement in relation to Orientalism as well as in how it is used in modern media. Give at least three arguments with clear statements/facts and examples. 4) Edward Said’s arguments are still very valid today. His arguments about ‘essentialism’, ‘representation’ and ‘Orientalism’ all relate to the idea of ‘The Other’. How do his arguments manifest themselves in what is happening in the world today? Not just in relation to ‘Orientalism’, but in relation to ‘The Other’? Give at least three arguments with clear statements/facts and examples. 5) ‘The identification of Orientalist discourse allows its critics to understand how the production of knowledge itself is a marker of the power exerted by the West over the Orient’. How does this power assert itself today in relation to today and to race and inequality outside of the ‘Orient’? Give at least three arguments with clear statements/facts and examples. Please make sure that opening paragraphs are present, as are conclusions. Each point/argument should be supported by evidence/facts and examples that are clear and illustrate that the writer is able to demonstrate that they understand what they are arguing. All parts of questions must be answered and examples must be given. Spelling, grammar and presentation should be perfect. Use DOUBLE SPACING, Times New Roman, 12 point font. Follow normal academic conventions (ie don't write in any other colour other than black type, do not put borders in etc). Make sure you have APA references - both in-text with page numbers and in your references. ONLY USE MATERIAL FROM THIS COURSE Sample structure for essay: Example of how to structure an outline for your answers. Please do NOT use headings! Introduction (rephrase the question/questions in your own words) and say what you are going to argue. Identify if there are two or three parts to the question and structure your outline accordingly. First argument with information/data - What are you arguing in response to each part of the question/each question asked? What information are you using? Why?
