- We have talked extensively in this course about Richard Delgado’s article, which describes the manner in which stories battle with each other. Why does the dominant story never seem like it’s a story that has its own agenda? Why are stories important for both in-groups and out-group’s to tell? From your own life use this article as a template for creating your own narrative/counter narrative. Also, explain how our own ideology can dictate the intelligibility of the stories that we hear.
- Stuart Hall says that race is a “Floating Signifier”. What does he mean by this term? How does ones race act like a language? Also, discuss the concept of “Matter out of Place”. How does your race play a part in this phenomenon? In what ways do the videos we watched in class last week speak to the ways in which race operates?
