  3. 3. I am a second year student at the Queen’s University, Kingston, pursuing a bachelor’s honours degree in English Literature and a minor in Linguistics. My research and curiosity has sparked my interest in creating beautiful work to inspire others. I am driven by my interest in creative design and I am experienced in the Adobe photo applications such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Bridge. I love to translate my love for creative art into something meaningful and carries a purpose. I am passionate about helping others and I am experienced in working in a team through my entrepreneurial venture last summer with Phase Shift. In the past year of study, I created a non-profit company called Phase Shift where students connect to the community by sharing their ideas on topics such as autism awareness, global environment, career development, self-help, music and culture. My responsibility as the lead organizer was to manage my team, elect speakers and plan future actions. These tasks taught me how to think creatively and adapt information into various forms of media. 3 About Me

  13. 13. Poster Context The posters are made as part of the marketing strategy towards youth and students. The posters were made on Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. The first examples of the posters is both in colour and grayscale. The print is more attractive in colour however because of the low budget for printing we decided to print a limited number of coloured prints and use black and white for a wider distribution. In addition, the logo for Phase Shift is in the first sample as an abstract logo open to interpretation. Overall, the design needed to look attractive to youth and students while also conducting important information about the event such as price, date, location and link to our website. 13
  14. 14. Academic Essay An Excerpt 14
  15. 15. The Scourge Of Illiteracy In Bleak House Charles Dickens’ Bleak House criticizes a society that contributes and condemns widespread illiteracy that is especially associated with poverty. The novel suggests that those who are illiterate are discriminated against and pay for their illiteracy through poverty and other forms of suffering. But as Bleak House shows, the costs of illiteracy are not only borne by the illiterate poor themselves. The novel implicitly demonstrates that illiteracy differentiates social classes where lower classes are often the immediate victims, but illiteracy also damages the victimizer and the culture as a whole. Dickens demonstrates that literacy differentiates social classes. Often, illiterate characters are discriminated against and dehumanized for their inability to read. Jo as the victim of discrimination suggests that his illiteracy distinguishes him as a low class citizen by comparing his ignorance of literature to the ignorance of animals. Jo is banished beyond the boundaries of the civilized in consequence to his illiteracy. The narrator questions the strange state of “Jo and the other lower animals [getting] on in the unintelligible mess” to isolate an illiterate group that is ignorant of the meaning of written language (Dickens 240). Dickens illustrates society’s cultural construct by dehumanizing Jo which suggests the social corruption taking place as the literate categorizes and makes distinctions against the illiterate rather than base their assumptions on individual merit. … Salvation refers to the prevention of harm, ruin or loss in the seemingly endless lawsuit of Jarndyce and Jarndyce. In contrast, discrimination against the illiterate cause the loss of salvation amongst the high social classes through the spread of suffering in the form of lost time and money. For instance, Mr.Krook struggles throughout the novel trying to spell out letters while he has no knowledge of the meaning behind the words. However, Mr. Krook has in his possession the final Will of Jarndyce which proves to end the lasting lawsuit because “it is duly executed and attested” to produce evidence to end the case in Chancery (Dickens 725). However, Mr. Krook is unable to read it in order to recognize the significance of Jarndyce’s final Will. Although the court of Chancery is composed of the literate, the court is unable to make decisions and end the lawsuit. Krook lacks the ability to read and write while Chancery lacks the perspective of neglected evidence (Dever and Meadows, “Krook, the Lord Chancellor”). Therefore, Mr. Krook might have helped save many people, such as Richard, from a great deal of misery and money had he recognized what he had in his bundles of letters. Overall, Dickens suggests the suffering due to illiteracy damages the culture as a whole, in contrast to only the illiterate poor. 15

  19. 19. The game is simple — you all represent the country’s population in Bleak House. Everyone in the country has a chance to become wealthy and move into the upper class. To move into the upper class, all you must do is throw your crumpled paper into the bin while sitting in your seat. If you miss, you will stay in your seat and pick an “unfortunate event” from the paper bin. 19 Social Privilege Activity Sample

  21. 21. Academic Presentation Context 21 In 1946 Geoffrey Tillotson described Bleak House as “the finest literary work in the nineteenth century produced in England.” Although Tillotson’s claim may be debatable, Dickens’ writing does explore the dark and dingy London and his irrepressibly sympathetic exploration of human fallibility. The novel provided me the opportunity to develop close reading, research, and critical interpretation skills. In the seminar class, I made a presentation on the novel Bleak House by Charles Dickens. The previous slides are demonstrations of my interpretation and critique of the unbalanced distribution of privilege in London’s social class system in Bleak House. Poor Jo Oscar G.
