Great work on last week’s posts students. Keep in mind that today is a holiday and tomorrow (Tuesday) follows your Monday schedule. As such, I will not hold office hours tomorrow.
For next week, keep reading The Scarlet Letter and watch the film version (and hopefully the RBG documetary). I also ask that you read the article below on Ruther Bader Ginsburg’s Lace Collar. Keep in mind that Hester Prynne’s Red Letter (“A”) is made of lace and that Hester makes a living sewing lace clothes for the ministers and community (they hate her but still buy her products!!!). Think more about the strength and importance of this fabric. Like Hester’s scarlet “A” it is a great example of “symbolism.” Also try to connect Hester Prynne’s strong will and character to Ruther Bader Ginsburg. I look forward to reading what you have to say.
