Choose one literary work and at least one work of visual art, and discuss where you see the intersections of cultures. In your initial posting, answer the following questions:

· Where do you see the coming together of cultures, and how is that intersection represented?

· How do the conventions of genre help the writer or artist to represent that intersection? (For example, word choice, imagery, symbolism and style in a literary work; composition, subject, light vs. dark, style in a work of visual art.)

· What are the results of this interaction? (For example, does the work represent the connections between cultures as bringing conflict, harmony, confusion, excitement, possibility, or something else?)

· Does the meeting of cultures raise issues about tradition, or about personal or cultural identity?

· If conflict arises in the work you have chosen, how does that tension arise, and to what extent is that tension resolved or unresolved?
