I have already started this easy so please continue where I left off, feel free to move what I wrote around and edit it. SO no need to start a new word document, you can just continue on the Paper 4 dox. I have provided my own raw notes as well as some quotes from the story that help support these concepts. Please use as many of the sources as possible that I have provided. Feel free to switch out the source titled The Psuchociocial implications of Disney Movies as I couldn’t really figure out how I was going to use it yet, But 4 sources are required.
The novelette you must write about is Martha Well’s “Murderbot: All Systems Red.”
The focus of this essay is the alterity and how anthropomorphism of a secunit named murberbot helps diminish the line between us and the other. (See my notes for more details on alterity). Basically what I’m trying to say in this essay is that through emotions we connect to the characters and project ourselves into it. We can’t help but hope for a happy ending where it gets to stay with Dr. Mensa on a farm and start its education but in actual fact, it is a genderless bot that chooses to leave Dr. Mensa at the end alone. I also wanted to link this to Disney films and the way they manipulate us in a similar manner, the source titled “The Child Mechanical and adult..” I’ve provided is perfect to do just that.
It is extremely important there are sufficient details from the story as well as even distribution of source references throughout the paper. If you have any questions about the story do not hesitate to ask, I will be at work but can reply in order to help you write the best paper possible!
This is for a sci-fi honors composition class so please tailor this essay appropriately.
