Book Description: Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Fakultät Medien), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Hausarbeit möchte ich mich dem Thema des fremden Selbst Griffins annähern und herausfinden: Wie stellt sich Griffin in seinem Tagebuch dar, während er aufgrund der Schwarzen Haut nicht mehr als "er selbst" erkannt wird? Inwiefern ist Black Like Me überhaupt dem Genre des Tagebuchs zuzuordnen? Wie prägen Stereotype Griffins Handeln als "fremdes Selbst" und die Art, wie er diese Erfahrungen niederschreibt? Wie kann die Authentizität der Niederschriften Griffins beurteilt werden? Weiter soll angesprochen werden, dass "Black Like Me" ein zeitloses Werk ist, das auch interkulturell verstanden werden kann.

Book Description: First published by Orbis Books in 1997,Man in the Mirrortells the story behindBlack Like Me, a book that astonished America upon its publication in 1961, and remains an American classic 50 years later. In 1959 a white writer darkened his skin and passed for a time as a "Negro" in the Deep South. John Howard Griffin was that writer, and his bookBlack Like Meswiftly became a national sensation. Few readers know of the extraordinary journey that led to Griffin's risky "experiment"—the culmination of a lifetime of risk, struggle, and achievement. A native of Texas, Griffin was a medical student who became involved in the rescue of Jews in occupied France; a U.S. serviceman among tribal peoples in the South Pacific, where he suffered an injury that left him blinded for a decade; a convert to Catholicism; and, finally, a novelist and writer. All these experiences fed Griffin's drive to understand what it means to be human, and how human beings can justify treating their fellows—of whatever race or physical description—as "the intrinsic Other." After describing this journey and analyzing the text ofBlack Like Me, Robert Bonazzi treats the dramatic aftermath of Griffin's experiment and life.Man in the Mirrorprovides a fascinating look at the roots of this important book, and offers reflections on why, after all these years, it retains its impact and relevance.
