QUOTE: To p‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ose the question of the nature of the narrative is to provoke reflection on the the very nature of culture and possibly even the very nature of humanity itself. The narrative arises between our experience of the world, and our efforts to describe that experience linguistically. Narrative in general, from the popular tale to the novel, from the annals to fully realized history, has to do with issues such as law, legality, legitimacy, or more generally, auth‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ority.

1‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍. Define your research questions clearly and succinctly, and explain why they are important. What are the social identities that intersect with LGBTQ people in Venezuela? What are the implications of these identities in the experiences of LGBTQ people in Venezuela? Knowing these identities and the implications on LGBTQ experiences helps deviate from studying identities (class, race, religion, etc.) separately and provides a common understanding to address LGBTQ issues in Latin America. Indicate what has already been published on the subject and how your research will extend or challenge that work, or how it will fill a gap in scholarship. According to my search, there is very little academic literature on LGBTQ in Venezuela. Especially in terms of intersectionality and LGBTQ. 2. Outline the intervention(s) you intend to make within broader debates and the original contribution(s) you expect to make to existing knowledge and/or conceptual frameworks. Mainly begin to build the puzzle of what it means to be LGBTQ in Venezuela. I especially w‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ant to separate the experience of LGBTQ people from the experience in western countries. This means that knowledge must be generated that adjusts to the Venezuelan and Latin American context. 3. Explain the methods you will use in your research and justify them as appropriate. Surveys Literature Review 4. Give details of any fieldwork you intend to carry out. Online surveys. 5. Outline the skills and experience you bring to the project, and how your previous studies have prepared you to carry it through to successful completion. In my dissertation I assembled substantiated connections with Venezuelan colonial history and LGBTQ rights in current context. I have explored in modules such as Equiality Diversity and Inclusion the concepts of intersectionality. Ability to critically examine and evaluate literature. Outstanding time management and prioritization to meet research projects deadlines. Capacity to translate content from Spanish to English accurately. Able to work collaboratively with people from different disciplines and cultures‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍.

R‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ESPOND TO THE QUESTIONS, BASED ON THE SOURCE PROVIDED The first four pages of this article, give definitions and a discussion of masculinity. This concept is then applied to the work of Dominican writer Junot Diaz. However, the discussions and definitions given in the first pages are helpful for our class. Read the article and answer the questions below. Questions on the first 4 pages 1. What is masculinity according to Professor Keith Nurse? 2. According to literary critic Satya Mohanty, what is the purpose of “identities” and” cultures” in our social reality? 3. According to anthropologist Pierre Bourdieu, what are the institutions interconnected in creating social constructs? 4. What is the dichotomy in masculinity as seen by Norma Fuller? 5. Explain why Antonio ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍de Moya says that, “masculinity depends on a kind of self-policing among its members”? 6. Reflection. What is your opinion on masculinity? Do you agree with the definitions offered in this article? 7. Read the following articles about the term “himpathy” and answer the question. These two recent articles and interview explore the behavior described by the term “himpathy” – part of a masculinity construct. Opinion: Why Kavanaugh should make men question ‘himpathy’ Commentary and interview with Kate Manne – Cornell University professor of philosophy who coined the term “himpathy”.

This will be a 10 page research paper speaking about the dress of the tradition Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). I provided an attachment with the guidelines and what is needed in the paper. I also provided the beginning of an outline for it along with the title name. On the guideline paper the professor states there is a reading called Dress as a Reflection and Sustainer of Social Reality by Jean and James Hamilton (about Karen people). Which provides an example of how you can structure the paper. If needed, I can send photos of that reading as well to get an idea of how it could possibly be structured.

O‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍verview: Write an essay reflecting on the state of contemporary Latina fiction. Incorporating the authors we have explored (as well as others if you are so inclined), make an argument about some of the most exciting developments in fiction written by Latinas. You should discuss at least two authors as well as at least one scholarly source discussing Latina fiction. No reading outside the class is required, but is not discouraged either. Format: 2 pages double spaced, 12 Font, Times, MLA works cited Sample Outline: I. Introduction- Option A – Discuss the Latina fiction field using the readings we have done from The Routledge Concise History of Latino/a Literature (available Lehman Library online book). Highlight major developments, literary elements, themes, etc. you think are important. If you prefer, you can also use other readings you’ve done outside of class or from other classes. Option B – Start “in medias res” by sharing an aspect of a novel or short story we have read that you think ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍illuminates a key development in Latina fiction. (If you go this route, insert a paragraph after the introductory paragraph that includes much of option B). YOU MUST INCLUDE A THESIS – or you will automatically get no higher than a C II. Body Paragraphs – select two to three authors whose work can serve as evidence for your thesis. For this paper, imagine a general literary audience, not a knowledgeable reader of Latina literature like me. When you introduce works, you should give enough context/ summary so this general reader can follow your argument, but now more than that. Papers that are heavily composed of summary will not do well. III. Conclusion – Do more than summarize your argument. Questions to consider could include: A. What are your hopes and/or predictions for the directions of the field? B. What are the most exciting aspects of what you’ve read? C. What is the significance for this discussion on the larger US fiction literary canon? IV. WORKS CITED – You must also include a form‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍al Works Cited with
