Finals Space Filler

You’ve got your little tricks to superficially fill space in papers. Try this one if your intellectual stimulation is at its limit and you’ve got nothing else to say, from Columbia’s Bwog:

If you’re writing a paper and need another page or two but have nothing more to say (surely, we can all relate!), you should bump up all the periods to size 14 font. It’s impossible to tell (on the page or printed out) if the paper is double-spaced, and it results in an extra page of text. Right before our eyes, the history paper of a friend grew from 7 to eight and a half pages. It was breathtaking.

Or, make the periods smaller if you’re well over any page limit and have nothing left to cut out, you overachiever, you.

Bwog: How’d you Like to Finish Your Papers?

Your paper is due today!

Historical Narratives is Wesleyan’s undergraduate history journal. We are looking for submissions for the 2008 edition!

Papers should be at least 1500 words, and while they do not have to have been written for a history class, we do look for an historical approach to a topic, original work and good use of primary sources.

Send your papers to historical.narratives@gmail.com
Deadline: Friday, November 16

If you are writing a paper for a class this semester, don’t despair
— there will be another submission opportunity in February!

Super Paper: Fall 2006

Remember this? This is what y’all spent the last two weeks of school freaking out about. Though I’m glad to hear that some of you found…creative… ways to blow off some stress (i.e. throwing a Molotov cocktail out of a window in Clark?!)

“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

Her honest opinion as an outsider is not the one of awe and salvation he, as a hero, wanted, but rather one of amusement. Es irónico que Úrsula tiene que perder “el sentido de la realidad” para conocer el pasado, que quizás es más “real” (o, al menos, más representante de la novela). Achaete-scute, on the other hand, requires such high concentrations of Wingless that it is only expressed in cells immediately surrounding those of the wg-secreting dorsal-ventral compartment boundary. Considering Lewis’s view of the books as a children’s story and a Christian story, the movie therefore managed to capture at least some of the Chronicles’ own ambiguity, and translate it into huge box office success. The article’s hip disdain for the “civilized hordes” mimics the ethos of Vanity Fair.
Even the Dalai Lama has endorsed meditation independent of Buddhism by creating a video called “His Holiness, the Dalai Lama on Secular Meditation” in which he explains how meditation can be compatible with any religious ideology. Generally speaking, multiculturalism carries a strong connotation of diversity, and I think it is fair to say that Sen sees Akbar as one who appreciated the value of diversity, particularly in the context of religious freedom. Yet this official return to neutrality did not benefit Spain as much as Franco had hoped; in fact, Franco’s actions throughout the conflict damaged international opinion of Spain, and after the war, Spain was denied entry into the United Nations on the basis of its pro-Axis sympathies and gestures. The sympathy and understanding and the tone of psychological realism which permeate these observations point to a fine discrimination of judgment and persuasively suggest a close identity, here at least, with the “implied author.” There is massive marble fireplace on one wall – I was surprised to hear that not too long ago, it was used regularly, during readings and concerts during the winter.
The sun, therefore, comes to represent the panoptic gaze of male dominated capitalism. “I always just thought that I was nuts. I didn’t realize that this was real” (Anonymous 2006). It may surprise the casual reader of such works as The Chronicles of Narnia or The Great Divorce to learn that their author began his academic career at Oxford as a fervent atheist. Further, all living things possess a fundamental instinct to dominate, master, and subdue. This “will to power” dominates all of our actions, views, and evaluations all of the time, but its influence is not as universal as its existence is.
Her green eyes are finally closed. It is a eulogy for mankind, lost in the separation of the self from the moment, in the deference that our active experience of life gives to our memories, to our constructions of plot. But with 5.7 million South Africans currently infected with AIDS, and over a thousand dying from it every day, it is clear that the country needs to overcome this distrust before its groundbreaking transition to democracy turns out to be in vain. En Cien años de soledad, esto se puede ver en una revelación de Aureliano, a quien “no se le había ocurrido pensar hasta entonces que la literatura fuera el mejor juguete que se había inventado para burlarse de la gente.” King espouses the polar opposite theology of his namesake.
Also, since fourth wall designations are not often used by the American deaf theater community, an intimate, non-proscenium setting would be appropriate. En esta posición privilegiada, personifica uno de los temas más importantes del libro: la verdad que reside debajo del exterior de la realidad. Despite all the people with whom he had surrounded himself in life, in death, he is forgotten. We see, in other words, the practice and promise of queer world-making. Development discourse has come to be recognized by the supposed recipients or “targets” of development as a litany of hollow, unfulfilled promises. Those that pass him in the park cannot begin to intuit his need to speak.
Once in place, the precedent of one group’s power over another continues to reinforce that very power, strengthening the system and keeping it from collapsing. His miniatures capture a paradise in tiny, perfect time capsules, thus protecting it from the ravages of time he fears so much. Therefore, all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Vronsky appears in part XIII just long enough to be seen traveling to a seemingly pointless war and towards a seemingly pointless death. Rather than a “wordless and healing intimacy,” love acts as an escape from the social conditions that construct it as an unattainable illusion.
The few, in pursuit of personal power, can sow superstition among the masses and take advantage of technological developments to destroy democracy, all in the name of progress. The fact that the issue was often construed in racial terms drastically simplifies the reactions and attitudes of city officials and residents. The novel gives no indication of what might happen to Jessamy; if she recovers, she could find herself feeling even more lost than before without even the mercurial friendship of TillyTilly to ground her. De esta manera, podemos entender a la historia de Don Quijote como un estudio de la psicología del individuo que recorre siglos de teorías, últimamente mostrando que la locura y la cordura, como dijo Freud, no son tan exclusivas o simples como uno pudiera pensar. And a divided consciousness among the powerless could result in apparently disjoined interests, creating a malleable view of issues and making manipulation possible.
By this point in the piece, Lay’s experiences with four Mexicans have been magnified into an indictment of the entire country. Yet the shame belongs to the man at the keyhole; it is his red face, his confession. He certainly lived true to that statement. Unconvinced that the Israelis would curtail their nuclear ambition, neighboring Arab states began securing Soviet weaponry for themselves. For all of her claims of deep motherly love, Anna never truly thinks about Serezha as a full person whose feelings she should be concerned about outside of the context of herself.
From this, no definitive truth on Pharoah’s feelings towards the plagues and Moses can ever be gathered, so the reader, with the fatherly guidance of YHWH, must determine for himself the ultimate truth of the Israelite’s plight and liberation from Egypt. We have all been banned from child contact for the time being for fear that we will reinstate the old hierarchies. Though Bynum claimed that female piety amounted to the empowering acceptance (and reinterpretation) of social roles that emphasized the fleshiness of women and placed them as controllers of the domestic realm, Salih demonstrates this that this definition of female piety is too narrow and does not accurately encompass the lived experiences of all religious ‘women.’ As we see in “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”, the corporation truly did manifest psychopathic tendencies.

Super Paper, Fall 2006

There’s a new Super Paper Thread on the ACB, where everyone posts the last sentence of the paper they’re writing. The result is a mind-bendingly incoherent mess, which just serves to make you feel better about the piece of shit you’re about to turn in. Click here to see last year’s Super Paper, and go here to contribute to the new one! We’ll post the completed paper here when finals are over.

(P.S. Make sure to click “reply to this” instead of “post a new comment” to make sure your comment goes to the right place.)
