The characterizations of gender can vary greatly from culture to culture, whether that be American versus Middle Eastern, Hispanic versus Spanish, etc. However, I have had very limited experiences in different cultures since I have lived in the United States my entire life, only engaging in multicultural activities seldom. Surprisingly enough, the biggest “culture shock” I have experienced thus far in my life was moving from the northern part of the United States to the south; more specifically, I went from living in New Jersey my entire life to living in North Carolina full-time. Regardless of being in the same country, there are several significant cultural differences just because of location. I would not go as far as calling it as severe as moving from country to country, but that does not mean it did not take some getting used to! The one main cultural difference in gender I noticed in the south is the emphasis on the more traditional “housewife” role for the female in a home. Whereas in the north, a decent majority of females would work outside of the home, in the south, it seems more are confined to the space of their cozy household. Now, I am not going as far as to say all southern females are merely filling the stereotype of the female taking care of the house and nothing else, it just seems like a good amount, at least in North Carolina, are more dependent on their husbands or males in the family than in the north. Whether or not this correlates to the stereotype or is a case-by-case basis is in the eye of the beholder; it was just something that really stuck out to me when I moved down here. One other big gender difference in the south is the role of males in the house. While…
The History and Origin of Film Making
Film making has been around for a long time now, but most people don’t realize how incredible an achievement it was when it first started. Before film there were no movies. It is very hard for me to even imagine a world without movies, a world where people had to use their imagination to make a story come to life through spoken and written word. That was what life was life about 140 years ago.
People lived that way until the late 1880’s, when the…
Geometry existed in 3000 B.C. in the ancient civilizations of Babylon and Egypt. However, it was merely a nameless mathematical system. Historians are unsure as to which of them first discovered Geometry. These ancient Indian civilizations also had records of the earlier versions of geometry. The geometry universally used today is referred to as the Euclidean Geometry. In 300 B.C.,Euclid gathered the most general concepts of geometry in his time and added his own original theorems as well…

Early Origins of American theatre
American theatre dates back to the latter half of the seventeenth century. Of course there were many performing arts created by the Native Americans before then. The first theatres were built at Williamsburg in 1716, New York in 1732, and Charleston in 1736. Most early American theatres were not built to last more than a couple of season. In the 1750’s American theatre became centered around two major cities, Philadelphia and New York.
