    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    it's not that I hate this topic, it's just that I find it kind of stupid.

    I'm finding it so hard to find related texts

    I wanted to use Leni's memoirs, but all I have are just annotated extracts which isn't helping my case..

    and Pliny the Younger's letters to his friend about the Vesuvius eruption.

    so so stuck

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    okay .. this might be far-fetched..
    but Homer's Iliad? or would that be too .. mythological to relate to H&M?

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    would there be a serious problem with having two films as my related texts? are we supposed to have a different medium for each text?

    We're studying the poetry of denise levertov in class, an I already have Forrest Gump as a related text, and wanted to do Life is Beautiful but ended up reading Huckleberry Finn instead, however i gave up on it a quarter of the way through because i couldn't stand the language the characters used.

    As far as I'm aware Life is Beautiful is no longer on the syllabus. Unless you (or anyone else) have evidence to suggest otherwise?

    Re: Supplementary Texts For History & Memory

    hmmm website and website...? the WWI thing is good but is there another medium you could use? it's better to have different text types. They're fine as long as you can relate to history and memory.

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    My texts are 50th Gate, a holocaust documentary 'Into the Arms of Strangers' and a source on the invasion/colonisation of Australia.
    Our teachers told us not to do fictional films because they are harder to link to th topic. And you also need to have at least one related away from the topic of your set text.

    What have people got for a thesis in this module? I think mine is too complicated...

    "In utilising a combination fo differing perspectives incorporating the iews of the powerful and the subjugated, individual and collective memories and changing historical interpretations, the representation of persons and events is made more reliable."

    Any thoughts?

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    Im doing Denise Levertov's poetry; and i was wondering whether a photograph would be suitable for related material? Or do you think actual 'texts' are better?

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    some people are doing some holocaust art and diagrams etc. So i don't see why photographs wouldn't suffice.

    my teacher strongly recommened that u dont have two of the same thing slike two films
    because part of it is how representation (which includes medium) etc. affects meaning and u'll show greater understanding if u have two different ones..hope that made sense

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    Hey! i just found an article on smh.com on fromelles and how it is still significant to this couple as their relatives were involved, then it explains history so i think it'll be good..i was stuck and this is easy enough to analyse (better than a poem )
