Write a four-to-five-page paper (1000 to 1250 words, double-spaced, in MLA format) on one of the topics listed below. You must include a bibliography of the works cited in your essay. General reminders: present a strong, original thesis based on your reading of the texts (or film) and demonstrate the validity of your claim by providing direct evidence from the works in question (use textual evidence to support your claims instead of citing your own life-experience). Also, provide appropriate page numbers for all quotations or background descriptions of specific passages, and include a works cited page to your paper (refer to the MLA Handbook for guidance on how to do both). If you choose to consult secondary sources from the
Library or Internet, you must cite them appropriately.1) Freuds The Uncanny and Hoffmanns The Sandman: Reread Freuds The Uncanny and Hoffmanns The Sandman taking the following questions into consideration: What is the uncanny and how does it function in E.T.A. Hoffmanns short story The Sandman? What explanation does Freud give for his emphasis on eyes and how do eyes, or vision, function in Hoffmanns story? What implications does the storys focus on vision have in terms of the act of reading the story itself? In other words, how do Hoffmanns words in the story manipulate the readers vision?
2) Gender, Race and Ridley Scotts ?Blade Runner?: rescreen Ridley Scotts ?Blade Runner and reread Judith Butlers The Subjects of Sex/Gender/Desire and Frantz Fanons The Negro and Recognition taking the following questions into consideration: In what sense and on what grounds does Butler call gender a performative and Fanon call the negro a comparison? How do these issues of gender and race arise in Scotts ?Blade Runner?, even if only implicitly? What does this film suggest about human subjectivity when it is rendered almost indistinguishable from an automaton (i.e. the replicants)?
