That is, the outer sphere is defined in opposition to the inner sphere, which is defined as the space in which a person communicates with those they know or “connect with” on a cultural level. Hill’s second argument is supported both by empirical fact, a canonical study outlined in the endnotes, as well as the other main general ethnographic explanation. Here, Hill also cites a number of concrete ethnographic cultural and historical examples to support her claim that the use of Mock Spanish elevates whiteness. It is important to note that Hill makes the general assumption that whiteness is inherently valued or indexed as “good” in American society. Hill’s final two arguments are different from the first two, as one focuses simply…

  • Antithetical Characteristics Of Truth In The Things They Carried By Tim O Brien

    strengths and weaknesses/gaps, comparisons/contrasts: 4-5 The literature reviewed so far has heavily focused on the structural explanations for the divergent outcomes of the Arab Spring.
