MCMLA 2010 slides (edited)

  1. 1. There are startling similarities between Desmond Hume's time traveling and Billy Pilgrim's time traveling. Daniel Faraday even goes so far to call it being "unstuck in time," the exact terminology which Vonnegut used to describe Billy Pilgrim's experiences. The novel (and its author) are a question asked on a game show watched by Michael Dawson shortly before his third attempted suicide. Billy meets aliens in the book who can perceive the past, present and future all at once. They know the universe will end accidentally with the push of a button; when he asks them why they don't prevent it, they reply: “'He has always pressed it, and he always will. We always let him and we always will let him. The moment is structured that way.” This is the same theory of time travel which Lost uses and which Miles attempts to explain to Hurley (in other words, what happened happened). The button on Lost may be a reference to the aforementioned button that would end the world. http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Slaughterhouse-Five
  2. 2. Slaughterhouse-Five: • Acknowledges that homosexual men were among the victims of the Holocaust. • Depicts sex. • Characters (mostly soldiers at war) use the f-bomb in a realistic manner.
  3. 3. Anyone here work at Missouri State? Dr. Wesley Scroggins, Associate Professor of Business at Missouri State
  4. 4. Dr. Elizabeth Fowler (PhD.) on those who suggested banning the Harry Potter books: “You know…anything that dumb people dislike this much is probably pretty good. Let’s order these.”
  5. 5. Links for Dr. Scroggins: • Order Speak from Amazon: http://goo.gl/aSag • Look up Speak on WorldCat: http://goo.gl/MlJH
  6. 6. Links for Dr. Scroggins: • On Missouri State’s OPAC: http://goo.gl/eg6x Scroggin’s letter to the editor published 9/18/2010, so that’s only 11 days. Kudos to Missouri State’s libraries (and to student protestors)! Please: Any time a member of your faculty suggests a particular book should be banned? Order it immediately.
  7. 7. Perspective …or Narcissism?
  8. 8. Narcissistic personality disorder DSM-IV-TR = 301.81 ICD-10 = F60.8 (Other specific personality disorders)
