how your own personal experiences, assumptions and predispositions impacted how you read the piece.

The forum for this week addresses the third learning objective: Produce an original opinion based on assigned literature.

Many of the pieces we have read during weeks 1-5 have social, cultural and political underpinnings and influences. Select one author or one piece of literature we have read thus far and discuss how your own personal experiences, assumptions and predispositions impacted how you read the piece.

The forum for this week will be another personal opinion posting. The themes are Imperialism and Modernism so choose literary works from those two periods/movements. Remember to support your interpretive comments with quotes and examples from relevant readings and include MLA documentation.
