USE A POEM FROM THE PDF ATTACHED
Select a short story, a poem, a painting or sculpture of any period; a song; a
series of images; or a contemporary video; and discuss how the work illustrates the creation, regulation, and management of bodies through social and/or material forms of power. You are encouraged to analyze one or more of Vivek Shraya’s poems. Strong analyses will take into account how social or symbolic forms of power (normative ways for bodies to be) operate in concert with material forms of power (normative ways for bodies to appear ) to subjugate identities to normativity, and in this case to ideas of “normal” or “abnormal” bodies. Be sure to call out and closely read specific narrative moments: that is, always apply your theory in context. Questions to consider when drafting your response are: in what ways does your selected work both play into and resist normative circumscriptions of power, gender, and gender’s relationship to power through language? How are gendered roles characterized in the world of the work you’ve chosen, and how does that characterization relate to how bodies are conceived of, and thus regulated, in the work’s context?
