EngC 1012, section A64
Prof. Karen Steigman
definition paper thesis and audience

term: Quaker
audience: first-year students in Marantha Christian Fellowship at the University of Minnesota

Although Quaker religious practice is quite different from the religious practices of most protestant Christian sects, those practices which are unique to Quakerism, such as silent worship and the rejection of creeds and sacraments, reaffirm many of the beliefs that separate Quakerism and protestantism from Catholicism and other sects of Christianity.


Yeah, it's crap, I know. I didn't even mention anything about what those beliefs are. Basically, I'm planning on going off the idea that both Quakers and other protestant sects put the bible over doctrine, and people over clergy. Unfortunately, I submitted this two minutes late, so hopefully I won't lose any points.
Dad, what do you think? Is this total B.S.?
By the way, all this really makes me want to take Quakerism 101. I really don't know as much about Quakerism as I thought, or wish, I did.

I would also like to say that... I HAVE A NEW CHAIR!!! YAY IKEA!!! YAY NOT HAVING TO DRAG OUR ONE CHAIR BETWEEN THE COMPUTER AND WORK DESK ANYMORE!!!!

So, now the question is... Should I study or should I sleep?

[EDIT: Okay, you guys totally need to check out today's XKCD. I'ts so true. Sad thing is, I've done it with my mom's old 1960s World Book Encyclopedia, too.]

"Because animation takes us away from our own reality, simultaneously allowing viewers to distance themselves from what they are watching and immerse themselves in the 'other world' that they are viewing, anime provides nearly limitless possibilities to explore both Japanese and world-wide contemporary society."

As I have a habit of saying, "could be better, could be a whole lot worse".

"Indeed, what appears to be the single most -asked question about anime in America, "why is anime so full of sex and violence?," is an inquiry that, while betraying an ignorance of the complexity and variety of the art form, is still significant in that it reveals the bewilderment of Western audiences in confronting so-called adult themes within the animated medium."
- from (my signed copy of ^_^) Susan J. Napier's Anime: from Akira to Princess Mononoke

Anyways, I've basically decided to write about anime for the audience of the Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature Film Society, which is "interested in films that address both the political and cultural impact of contemporary society". Especially after getting some help from [livejournal.com profile] yumenohoshi and reviewing the first two chapters of Anime, I'm feeling good about this. :)

[EDIT: *jumps up and down excitedly* I have to do some more research, but this is gonna be the first time in a while where i'll have more to say than i can in the space i have. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^
Although... I just realized that I'm gonna have to tie myself down a bit with the requirement of focusing on multi-culturalism...

Based on what you know about the term and what your audience knows and wants, decide what the paper will be about.
For example, you could track:
* how use of the term has changed over time
* OR how different micro-cultures' use of the term varies
* OR how the term gets used in political rhetoric
* OR what elisions the term creates
* OR the legal uses of the term
* OR how the term is defined differently by insiders vs. outsiders
* OR your experience with the term (placed in a larger context of term usage)
* OR some other uses or abuses of the term (you must get my okay for this option)

作文を書くことが大嫌い!I've been stuck for hours on trying to decide why it's important for members of Campus Crusade for Christ to learn more about the term 'Mormon'. I mean, all I can think of is "umm... because it's important to learn about other religions", but that doesn't provide incentive for Cru members to (hypothetically) read my paper. Especially since one of the main intents of this paper is to learn how to write for an audience, the answer to this question could affect what the thesis of my paper will be.
And to think that my introduction is due at midnight tomorrow. ><;

(I could always say that the reason for them to read the paper would be so they can know how to convert members of the LDS church away from Mormonism, but I don't think that'd fly with my teacher. But I do think I should bring up how many people, Christian or otherwise, believe Mormonism is a cult...)
