For this discussion, you are required to conduct some research that will help you to prepare for this week’s second discussion board, “Analyzing a Literary Work in Relation to Sociopolitical Contexts and Movements.” It is recommended that you read the prompt for the additional assignment before beginning this discussion in order to understand how to apply this material to the next discussion. So, to boil it down, the two discussion board questions are related.
Choose one aesthetic movement that is relevant to this week’s materials and about which you would like to learn more (the Iranian women’s movement and Iranian intellectual movements, the Hausa Literary Movement of West Africa, the Chicano Movement of Mexican-Americans, or the Latina Movement of women of Latin American descent). Research the chosen movement, keeping in mind how social, political, and historical conditions influence the aesthetics of the movement you have chosen. Then, write a post which highlights your views on how the movement is related to the social, political, and historical circumstances from which it emerged.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
