Here are the notes we took over the main terms on the handout (Juxtapose Mainstream Lit and Indigenous Lit):
Juxtaposition: Placing of two items side by side for contrasting effect, to create a certain effect, reveal an attitude, or accomplish some other purpose
Mainstream: Popular to the masses; ordinary; commonplace. In literature – traditional realistic fiction, a bit predictable.
Indigenous: “Native” – originating from a particular environment or region. In literature – works produced by original/native peoples and/or their descendants.
The purpose of comparing the two is to gain a deeper understanding of Indigenous Literature.
