Read “Part IX – 4: “Interrupting the Cycle of Oppression” by Andrea Ayvazian (pg. 707) and Part IX -5: “The Pitfalls of Ally Performance: Why Coalition Work Is More Effective Than Ally Theater” (pg. 713)
From Part IX, read, “Interrupting the Cycle of Oppression: The Role of Allies as Agents of Change” by Andrea Ayvazian and “The Pitfalls of Ally Performance: Why Coalition Work Is More Effective Than Ally Theater” by Anderson and Accomando. What is an ally? Does Ayvazian’s use of the term provide an adequate model for people in dominant positions in the culture or people with relative power to enact social change? Why or why not? What do Anderson and Accomando say about coalition work? Write an essay in which you compare Ayvazian’s and Anderson and Accomando’s articles and their use of the term “ally.” Where do you see their arguments as overlapping? How are they different? How can you apply these concepts to your own life and position in relationship to social movements? Make sure you provide some concrete examples in your paper.
