Transcript: POSTMODERNISM: My mother bore me in the southern wild, And I am black, but O! my soul is white; White as an angel is the English child: But I am black as if bereav’d of light. When I from black and he from white cloud free, And round the tent of God like lambs we joy: I’ll shade him from the heat till he can bear, To lean in joy upon our fathers knee. And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair, And be like him and he will then love me. "Strong enough to bear the children then get back to business" Beyoncé illustrates that in reality it is women in society who are much more pshcologically stronger than men as we are able to bear children and then get back to business. {Fights against societal expectations of stereotypes of genders} P!NK- Dear Mr President The Dairy of a Young Girl- Anne Frank Ingrid demonstrates through her homage to Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistable" that the way we are socialised into stereotypical gender roles and our sexuality should not be seen as something to be embarrased about but rather we should embrace the vairty of sexualities bought about throught postmodernism. Overall, Postmodernists believe that the societal expectations are a means for effectively imposing conformity on individuals within society. However the purpose of the song is purely to signify that in reality, we all chase one thing, love and therefore equal. We're all in this together! Functionalists believe this is excatly the type of society we need, whereby we all have an established value consensus which allows us to proggress and build social cohesion and maintain social solidarity. iNTERACTIONISM: The Little Black Boy- William Blake Postmodernists would argue the globalisation of cultures has resulted in metanarratives no longer being able to provide explanations for all aspects of society. It has resulted in a loss of identity as individuals are at the face of many choices being provided to them thus enabling them to pick 'n' mix different aspects of cultures to build a new identity which suits them best. This piece of art signifies how the rapid changes within all societies are possibly causing established cultures and identites to lose their value. Femisim! We're not dumb and we're not blind (We're not blind) They're all sitting in your cells while you pave the road to hell Let me tell you 'bout hard work Minimum wage with a baby on the way Let me tell you 'bout hard work Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away Let me tell you 'bout hard work Building a bed out of a cardboard box Let me tell you 'bout hard work Hard work Hard work You don't know nothing 'bout hard work Hard work Although in this song P!NK is not physically rebelling against the ideological state apparatus she uses emotional empathy in an attempt to question the political ideologies and to illustrate how their actions negatively impact the proletariat. Her recognition of the social inequalities of a capitalist society possibly drives the proletariat coming closer to a revolution, as Marx had predicted, of course, there are many changes that need to be addressed before any such revolution can actually take place. Anne FRANK born on the 12th of June 1929, in Germany provides an insight to her own personal experience of the Holocaust. When Hitler seized power in 1993, Anne’s family amongst many other Jew families were forced to escape the brutal killings such as the Concentrations camps. At the age of 13, presented with a diary as a birthday gift, Anne began to record her thoughts and feelings. Interpretivists favour this form of qualitative data as it allows them to gain an insight to meanings and emotions behind each interaction. Not only does Anne’s diary provide the reader with her personal emotions, it further illustrates the motive behind the interaction. High School Musical- We're all in this together Khaled Hossieni- A thousand splendid suns - Value consensus - Education helps meet the functional prerequisites - Maintains social harmony through social cohesion Melanie illustrates the concrete details of what really goes on behind closed doors in an everyday situation for some individuals. From this, Interactionist's would argue that it is impossible to gain a true understanding of society without conducting qualitative, primary data as society is a result of our interpretations we obtain from various symbols and social situations. Although Positivism allows quantitative data to be compared, Interpretivist's would argue it is not enough to make generic conclusions as we are, what they would refer to as 'social actors' who adjust their behaviour in accordance to their environment. One of my favourite books set in Afghanistan, early 1960s to 2000. The books story illustrates the patriarchal society and the conformity from the proletariat class and women. Both women, Miriam and Laila, were victims of both physical and emotional abuse signifying the ill- treatment that was endorsed. Despite the harsh reality of the story,
