    use this movie called Baraka. It's this non-verbal film kinda showing the effects of the "global" on 'local' cultures. Or contrasting them...or something

    Then again I suck at extension English and am aiming for e2.

    yeah it is 'retreat from the global'. 'navigating the global' is the 2009 syllabus...if you're going in to that exam with 'navigating' you're basically screwed...

    Re: extension 1 - navigating the global???

    some really good texts i just wrote on for HSC paper:
    Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, chinese film by Dai Sijie adopted from novel. interesting in how it puts in perspective our questioning of global identity crises, when compared to the difficulties in finding identity and direction within parochial local cutlures.
    Home and Exile, autobiographical essays by Chinua Achebe. he is like the big daddy of postcolonialism so this is a really good poco-for-dummies type thing, brimming with good anti-capitalist, anti-neocolonial sentiment.
    Half a Life, novel by V.S. Naipaul. tons more complex, but may be more impressive because of it: indepth analysis of the complexities and paradox of being a Diaspora, being an immigrant in a world with no boundaries. a bit like some of the set texts in stance (similar to Proulx, particularly, but profoundly more pessimistic; similar to MacLeod also in a way).
    hope that's any help. give us a shout if you're after some resources on them; i've found some stuff around the place.

    I did:
    Hair ~ movie/musical
    Window ~ wordless picture book

    And I also prepared for:
    Black Books - Blood ~ TV show episode

    These all work for related text to retreat from the global. Surely they can be adapted to the new topic.

    Re: extension 1 - navigating the global???

    Were doing the poetry of Seamus Heaney at the moment which is great for navigating the global, especially the poem "Digging". But I'm a little stuck for additional texts. Any further ideas?
    Absolutezero: That picture book sounds good, where can I find it? Just at a normal bookshop?
    Thanks for the advice. I'll keep my eyes peeled for more articles etc.
    Maybe you could post what our doing in class and we could use each other texts?

    Lucy.
