In any essay of no more than 1250-1750 words offer a critical reading of some aspect of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. For example, perhaps you’ll want to consider how whiteness serves as a cultural rather than solely racial category against which the novel positions life on the Spokane Indian reservation. According to the novel, in order to find hope, Junior must betray his own cultural heritage. By participating in white culture, he contributes to and even celebrates some of the very values that have engendered hopelessness on the reservation. He has become, in the language of the course, a fully formed hegemonic subject.Alexie sets up Junior’s transition by describing the economic conditions on the reservation. In order to fully articulate the novel’s point about Junior’s subject position, you will need to examine his class position, as well.
You will need to read and engage with at least two peer-reviewed, secondary sources. These sources should enhance, support, or even counter your argument. They should not constitute it. In the example above, for instance, you might want to find an article on cultural assimilation as it relates specifically to Spokane tribal members. The might help you frame your discussion of the dilemma that Junior finds himself in. You might also find an article that details the economic conditions on the Spokane reservation during the period in which the novel takes place.
You may approach this assignment however you like. But be sure to attend to the following:
• Provide a clearly stated thesis
• Use examples from the text that support that thesis
• Offer a critical reading of the text
• Read and engage with at least two peer-reviewed sources
• Provide a conclusion that answers the question, “so what”? ***
Your paper will conclude by answering the following question: so what? That is, the paper must explain its purpose. What is important about your topic? How does it contribute to an understanding of the novel? Do not conclude by simply restating what you have already written. Assume an active and engaged reader who does not need to be reminded of what you have said. In this conclusion you will not introduce new ideas, but you will explain the significance of the paper to your reader.
