Radical feminists , second degree feminists and Sara AhmedRadical feminists , second degree feminists and Sara Ahmed
Paper details 
What do radical feminists actually repproach ''second degree'' feminists. Stating some radical feminists infact degrading women. Men and women are indeed equals, but we arent identical are we? we hold our difference still, a man in the wild would be more likely to slay a tiger then the women to pick a number of berries and raise babies better than the man would. Speaking of the facebook video for feminism going around, social content , emotions? Instead of using little girls as political props and making them use the f bomb for shock value, stating the same debunked and unreliable statistics, and thus ruining those little girls will to ever have an opinion of their own. what is this specific sort of feminism really? Cite two different types of feminists with different approaches to feminism. a radical, and non radical feminist still for equal rights, only with different approaches . why not come up with thought solutions, a read this article of this college student who decdied thata solution to the problem was to isolate en, give them all they need to drink eat and have fun, aswell as shelter. Having women work and children raised by an uncorrupted goverment , which isnt necessarily the way but a way of succeding as a human race. Could add some of Sara Ahmend's view on feminism aswell. Your final papers are to be 6-8 page research essays. Each essay should apply affect theory to some object, idea, cultural study, personal experience, political movement, or something of similar character. In other words you might research the effects of fear on whether a population is willing or not to go to war; or how the white beauty norm affects the emotional health of women of color; or how nostalgia functions in our conceptions of home; or how advertisement works with emotion; etc. etc. The essays should include a nuanced analysis of the research you’ve found; a clear argument you’re making about this research; and a so-what point on why it matters for ethics in the world and/or the field of affect theory.

CRITICAL COMPARATIVE BOOK REVIEW ON THURGOOD MARSHALL USING BOOKS
* THURGOOD Marshall A Biography (Greenwood Biographies)
* THURGOOD Marshall American Revolutionary by Juan Williams

Assignment:

Pick an American political figure (but must be DECEASED!) and read two biographies of that person by different authors (at least 150 pgs each). After reading each biography, write a critical review of the two books of 4-6 typed, double-spaced pages. In addition to evaluating each book for its own merits, you will also compare and contrast the two books.

These are to be CRITICAL book reviews, meaning that you will need to analyze each book carefully, and then weigh them against each other. Among the questions you should consider are:

Why did the author of each book choose to write a biography of this person?

What was the purpose of each book? Does the author state a purpose?

What are the main arguments of each book?

What is the thesis?

Would you characterize each biography as sympathetic to the subject or critical?

Are you convinced by the arguments/thesis of each author?

What are the strengths and weaknesses of each book?

Can you discern a bias in the authors’ work?

Which author does a better job explaining the life of the subject? Why?

How do the authors arguments compare?

Which author presents a more compelling or believable thesis?

Does it seem that the authors are purposing seeking to undermine the argument of the other?

If one of the biographies is written many years before the other, can you identify how historical events have shaped/changed the interpretation of the subject’s life as reflected in the other biography?





These are just some of the questions to consider in your papers. The bottom line is that you are expected to engage the materials and ask why each author presents the life of the subject the way they do. All authors have an agenda. It is your job to discern it.
