Harvard University Presentation of Self in Everyday life Article Discussion

Read the Introduction to Goffman’s “Presentation of Self in Everyday life” (see attached) and submit 500 words commentary.

Comment on the following:

1.Vocabulary used in this reading (100 words)– did you understand all terms and concepts in the text ? How did you deal with those terms and concepts that you did not understand?

2.Main argument (200 words) – can you identify what is the main argument of this text, what the author tries to tell us and which evidence has he used to support it

3.Critical assessment (200 words)– what do YOU think about that argument? Do you agree or disagree and why?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
