En nuestras discusiones en clase, hemos explorado las ideas decoloniales de los estudios de gnero con Mara Lugones enfocndonos en Coatlicue como figura de anlisis.

Vimos el monolito, muchas representaciones de la arte plstica, y dos categoras de textos: 1) Las de feministas chicanas (Mora, Moraga, Anzalda) y 2) La de Poniatowska (de CDMX) en su cuento.

Las primeras (Mora, Moraga, Anzadla) buscan re-escribir y re-apropriar a la Coatlicue para que sea una figura empoderada para la mujer chicana. La segunda busca relucir las actitudes coloniales que siguen presentes y problemticas en la cultura mexicana moderna.

Hemos examinado la diosa Mexica Coatlicue, desde la poca colonial y la respuesta a su descubrimiento a re-apropiaciones de su figura para participar en movimientos nacionales despus de la Revolucin (como los muralistas) a recreaciones subversivas chicanas (como Anzalda, Mora, Moraga), a versiones contemporneas que revelan condiciones actuales de racismo y opresin en los Estados Unidos y Mxico.

Enfoca tu anlisis textual en dos de los cuentos o ensayos que hemos ledo y discute cmo su figura interrumpe narrativas dominantes y resiste que la desaparicin de discursos de minora en obras mexicanas y chicanas. Debes incorporar una discusin de gnero sexual, racismo y decolonizacin en tu argumento. Puedes usar representaciones artsticas de Coatlicue para apoyar tu argumento pero debes basar tu argumento en los textos que selecciones.

Se evaluar la sofisticacin de tu anlisis literario y tu habilidad de hablar de las complejidades de la desigualdad de gnero y discriminacin racial en Mxico y en los EEUU.

I did a reading analysis on Singer and down below is a brief response to his essay, which I would like to include in my essay assignment.

I agree to a certain extent; I feel like you can buy yourself nice things, eat out sometimes and go on a vacation, and give back by making a small donation to a charity for a good cause. I’m not saying break your pockets or bank accounts either.

” Therefore, for a family bringing in 50,000, a year donation helps the world’s poor should be a close as possible $20,000.” I think that is absurd, I fall into that bracket, and I cannot see myself donating that much. No one should be obligated to donate, but if you have the extra money, contribute. Why not? Every little bit helps in some way.

As usual, your team is to choose five (5) stocks for this portfolio.  For this project, you will refine your strategies for selecting stocks. In the last project you measured value strictly according to the stocks book-to-market value (BV/MV), or price to book (P/B). For this project, you will build a portfolio using a top down analysis in addition to stock picking strategies; one that first assesses the nature of the economy, then identifies the appropriate sector(s) and industry(s), then selects stocks with six to twelve month potential using several screening criteria.

You will begin by citing at least three (3) economic experts regarding the economic climate over the next 6-12 months, then progress to sectors and industries recommended by sector and industry experts. You must then use a minimum of four screening criteria of your choosing to identify five stocks for your portfolio.  Consult Chapters 9, 14, 17 and 18 in BK&M, as well as any online sources to aid your strategy. You are free to select growth and/or value stocks, but you must include each stocks P/B ratio if choosing value stocks.
Pages 3    On a separate page, list and describe the selection criteria for your stocks. Please briefly explain why the criteria is valid.

Pages 4-.    For each stock, provide a separate page detailing the company’s business and justification for your choices based on your economic analysis. Your report for each stock should also include a brief analysis (provided by the source of your choice), and the source(s) of your information. You must articulate your rationale for choosing your stocks in your words.
