Michel Foucault forcefully observed that the birth of the prison is entangled in a larger web of power, control and surveillance. As you embark on the BEST paper ever written, refer to the work: From the Panopticon to Disney World: The Development of Discipline by Clifford Shearing and Phillip Stenning. [https://popcenter.asu.edu/sites/default/tiles/problems/crimes_against tourists/PDFs/Shearing_Stenning_1997.pdt] In doing so, remain mindful that prison museums invert the Disney experience by becoming the antithesis of the happiest place on earth. Thus, your task is to analyze those related phenomena by discussing the following issues: (1) the manner by which prisoners as well as visitors to prison museums and Disney World are placed under surveillance; (2) the manner by which safe contact is administered in prison museums and Disney World; (3) the manner by which knowledge is diffused (via images, objects, and space) in prison museums and Disney World; (4) the role of architecture in maintaining surveillance and control in prison museums and Disney World; The prison museums are: Alcatraz (San Francisco), the Argentine Penitentiary Museum (Buenos Aires), the Clink (London), the Old Fort, Number 4, WomenOs Jail (Johannesburg), Eastern State Penitentiary (Philadelphia), the Hong Kong Correctional Services Museum, Hyde Park Barracks (Sydney), Kilmainham Jail (Dublin), the Melboume Gaol, Robben Island (Cape Town), and the Seodaemun Prison History Hall (Seoul). (Also see videos posted by Professor Welch on YouTube) Additionally incorporate slideshow material from former detention (and torture) sites in Belfast, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Asuncion, and Montevideo. Your paper should be TWELVE pages (single-spaced, 12 pitch). (Use citation style contained in the book Escape to Prison.) Precious points will be awarded to critiques boasting an insightful title.
Social norms in South Korea revolving around appearance also add to a beauty-obsessed society. Whereas in America the phrase “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything nice at all” continues to be an important theme of polite mannerisms, Koreans often comment on each other’s facial and physical “deficiencies”. One journalist writes, “Remarks from relatives, such as ‘You would be a lot prettier if you just had your jaw tapered,’ are considered no more insulting than ‘You’d get a lot more for your apartment if you redid the kitchen’” (Marx 2015). Professor Valerie Gelezeau of EHASS in Paris observes that this action is “not considered impolite; on the contrary, it is a duty that must be performed to help the friend in question to do something to improve his/her physical appearance” (Gelezeau 2015). APPLICATION OF PERSPECTIVE TO TOPIC South Korea is known for its highly rigorous educational standards, with students in high school studying for an average of 13 hours per day in hopes of scoring well on the CSAT, a nationally standardized exam administered once-a-year that could land you admission into one of the prestigious SKY (Seoul University, Korea University, Yonsei University) universities. Competition between students in school is especially intensive due to an education system along with cultural norms that promotes a ranking system, and students consequently growing up comparing themselves to their peers. How does this culture of competition within the education system relate to South Korea’s obsession for beauty? This rigorous and cut-throat system has led to a society that boasts a 98% high school graduation rate and “the highest percentage of 25-34-year-olds with tertiary education at 70%” (OECD 2018). With so many motivated college graduates seeking for a limited number of college degree-level jobs, how can individuals gain a competitive edge over their peers? The answer seems to be in physical appearance. In Korea, applicants to jobs are required to attach photos of themselves to their resumes—which is then scrutinized and used to assess each candidate. Holiday and Elfving-Hwang cites recruitment agency JobKorea, who “found that 80 percent of recruitment executives considered the physical appearance of a candidate ‘important’, and a 2006 study found that there was a perception among high school students that appearance would often be considered of greater importance than abilities and skills in hiring decisions” (Holiday, Elfving-Hwang, 2012).>GET ANSWER
