I have suggested that we should engage and be engaged by those persons who see and understand the world differently from those who sit comfortably within a dominant we society so that we might (re)imagine or discover a new place for democratic politics. And as film-goers who find ourselves more susceptible emotionally to the stimuli presented in a movie theatre, we can at times experience vicariously, yet deeply, the events, the stories, the lives of those who are different from ourselves. As individuals living in a multicultural and diverse society we should consider opening ourselves up to and welcoming such engagement and the possibilities for personal transformation in our individual sensibilities. Such a transformation might occur when one considers and compares the experiences of his or her life and the impact of those experiences on his or her identity next to those raw materials that make-up or construct the identity(ies) of those who are different from them, specifically those who have been marginalized, disregarded, and silenced by a dominant we society. I have suggested that when one truly sees Other, sees and hears the stories of difference crafted and told by the Other in film, one might come to respect the different voices and stories of those lives and thus allow him or herself to see and experience life from a new position, a transformed sensibility, where politics transcend convention. In other words, when we consider our lives next to those who are different from us, when we frame those different human stories next to our own personal human narrative we may come to understand how a particular human uncertainty and vulnerability informs all of our lives.
In 300-500 words share whether or not you believe film has the potential to transform one’s political sensibilities. And if you believe that your personal sensibilities have been (re)shaped or transformed by a particular film, say so. The objective here is to share your thoughts pertaining to the major thesis presented in Democracy and Difference.

In your essay writing for this course, use at least two of the following “tools” to analyze the piece. In your introductory paragraph (or second paragraph in some instances) mention which two tools you are using. This is the backbone of your thesis and should help with the structure and organization of your paper.
Feel free to employ your artistic freedom in your piece, and I do not grade based on my personal beliefs and values. I grade the essay based on the quality of the analysis, the supporting evidence/examples, grammar, structure, organization, and clarity. Length is not a factor, as an essay is only as long as it needs to be. That being said, an essay is not done until it has completed its purpose; in this case using two types of analyses to develop further understanding.
Below you will find some tools of analysis and some websites. Feel free to branch out as long as your essays are collegial, credible, professional, and analytical.
