In Chapter 9, you read about four criteria that need to be met in order for contact between hostile groups to
prejudices. In this assignment, you will reflect on these criteria and develop a program to reduce prejudice.
essay that includes the following components:
an explanation of how one’s tendency to perceive others using either the halo effect or the fundamental
could contribute to developing prejudices,
a description of the four criteria used to reduce prejudice, and
a discussion of the two criteria that you think are most important and why.
You must also access the Waldorf Online Library to find a peer-reviewed empirical article that provides
for at least one of the two criteria you selected as most important above. In the library database
PsycARTICLES, put your
search criteria in the Advanced Search, and then limit to the Research Methodology of Empirical Study. These
specific kinds of studies are also located in peer-reviewed scholarly journals.
After providing a brief overview of the article’s main findings, address the following points.
Describe a prejudice reduction program you could implement based on the two criteria that you previously
selected as most important.
Explain why you believe this program will be effective by drawing on research concerning prejudice and
Discuss how the program would be implemented. Be specific in who would be targeted, where this program
would take place, and how you see the program being executed.
hand, is concerned with decayed emotion. An inconsistency in Gothic is that ‘Gothic novelists did not know how to release their own feelings of frustration and rebelliousness. Their fiction is both exploratory and fearful’ as Kilgour tells us. It usually results in the death of a villain. Miles has a valid point about how you cannot constrain Gothic to a particular type of text, preferring to class Gothic literature as a taste or preference. Overall, I will show that the reception of gothic writing-its institutional and commercial recognition as a kind of literature- played a fundamental role in shaping many of the ideological assumptions about high culture that we now associate with the term Romanticism. The Gothic novel was first invented almost single-handedly by Walpole as The Castle of Otranto fits most of the classifications we see in Gothic today. ‘The Gothic, like any genre, depends on a system of classification, and because genres, as Derrida argues, are never pure, and systems of classification, according to Foucault, cannot be verified, one is pressed to investigate and contest the validity of the definitions and conceptions typically attributed to the term “Gothic”, a kind of writing that is evidently heterogeneous and impure’ (Alshatti, A. (2008).). Walpole’s novel was imitated in the eighteenth century, but it was enjoyed widespread influence in the nineteenth century partly because of the era’s understanding in dark and fascinating themes. He could be said to have been influenced by Shakespearean dramas because in The Castle Of Otranto he plays around with mental disturbances, where Manfred seeks to marry the soon to be wife of his dead son Conrad to keep his genes alive throughout generations. Lady Macbeth evidently suffers from a psychotic disorder with the misfortune of hallucinations which can be induced by extreme guilt. She has the sense of heavy guilt because her and her husband killed King Duncan in cold blood. Gothic, it can be argued, was instrumental in the decisive shift towards popular fiction in its modern form, aimed at a brood readership, commercially streamlined, form>GET ANSWER
