Presentation763 Words / ~2 pages Ethnic geography „Ethnic­ity&#­8220­; derived from the Greek word „ethnos­̶­0;, which means “people­” or “nation­̶­0;. Ethnic groups have a strong feeling of togetherness because of their culture, race, religion, language or nationality. Ethnic groups are associated with clearly recognized territories in which they are primary or exclusive occupants and upon which they have placed distinctive cultural marks. So ethnic separatism has to do with territorial isolation and assists individual groups to retrain their identificatio­n. Where ethnic groups are intermixed because territorial boundaries are inexactly, conflict between those groups can be serious if peaceful relations or central government control break down (think of former Yugoslavia) The opposite to that…[show more]
Homework689 Words / ~ pages Response to: “A Rose for Emily” ‛A Rose for Emily’ was written in 1930 by William Faulkner. The title of the short story suggests a love story, but in fact it is some kind of a ‛farewe­ll­217; to a woman who died. The woman, Emily, is the central character in the story. The setting of the story is a small, southern town of the United States. Major themes of the story: The ‛good old South’: - Women were not able to escape the social pressure of the town’s community. Emily, for instance, was suppressed by her father and later by the community of the small town (whose people didn’t want her to fall in love with a Northener). All of her life, Emily has been dominated by others – she has never had a life of her own and she has never been able to make her own decisions because of the patriarchal…[show more]

We use it to put events in order, to compare the duration of them and the intervals between them. So time has been a important subject of religion, science and philosophy. In narratives texts four levels can be distinguished­. The fist level concerns the real author, James Joyce, who addresses the real reading public by writing the narrative text. The second level is the text itself, written by the real author. The third one concerns the narrator, who is telling the story. And the last and fourth level…[show more]

Notes14.688 Words / ~47 pages But by 1250 CE, French began to lose its prestige. King John had lost Normandy to the French in 1204 CE, and after him, King Edward I spoke only English. At this time, many foreigners entered England which made the nobility feel more English and so encouraged more use of the English language. The upper class tried to learn English, but they did still use French words sometimes, which was considered somewhat snobbish. French still maintained its prestige elsewhere, and the upper class did not want to lose it completely. Nevertheless, the Hundred Years War (1337-1453 CE) intensified hatred of all things French. The Black Death also played a role in increasing English use with the emergence of the middle class. Several of the workers had been killed by the plague, which increased the status of the peasants, who only spoke English. By…[show more]
Term paper3.363 Words / ~12 pages 1. Introduction The Tower of Babel was, according to Genesis Chapter 11, a planned tower in the city of Babel where numerous peoples lived, who were all speaking the same language. Working together as a unity they started to build a tower, which should reach the sky. However, God watching the people approaching heaven assumed that as long as people are unified through a common language, they could do whatever they wanted to. As a consequence, he confused their language and spread them all over the world. ( ) Whether this might be the reason for today’s vast variety of languages or not, fact is that there are probably ten thousands of languages spoken all over the world and even within a rather small part of it- namely Europe- it is not clear how many languages exist. Nevertheless, we can say that there is an effort to unify people…[show more]

Summary575 Words / ~ pages Summary - What is America Just a few days ago I heard somebody explaining why a topic becomes worth studying. Whenever a problem occurs in any aspect of life we study it in order so find a solution. Therefore it is understandabl­e why culture became an academic discipline, because there are indeed a lot of troubles concerning all kinds of cultures. So the question “What is America?” is not that easy to answer as it may seem in the first place, but if you take a closer look you will see that there are a lot of problems. Conventional approaches mainly focused on the perspective of white, heterosexual, middle-class men, which excluded numerous of other experiences made by a diversity of people who live in America. Therefore I think new approaches are crucial in order to give those groups a voice that have been marginalised for a very…[show more]

Essay688 Words / ~ pages Fat Land USA The US people are supersized today, unintentional­ly forced by food companies? In the late 80s the owner of the Italian restaurant chain „Olive Garden “received a phone call from Larry, who had an unusual complaint: He couldn’t fit in any of the chairs, because he was too fat. So the owner decided to buy supersize chairs for every Olive Garden restaurant in the country. Nowhere did this new boundary-free culture of American food consumption thrive better than in the traditional American family. But there was a lack of time when it came to the kids. And when it came to eating together, that time became ever dearer. The new parent had no time for such unpleasantnes­s. Most parents were pragmatists. It was easier and more practical simply to eat out – or to order in. In 1970 the “food away from home” was 25 percent; by 1996 Americans…[show more]
