I would like to focus on the homeless for my project topic. The homeless are an underrepresented culture in the humanities. Scattered all throughout the city, in side alleys, tunnels and streets, the homeless live out their lives on the brink of survival. Often they are treated with hostility by the rest of society. Stereotypes about them further alienates them from society and without a voice they are left to drift farther away from the more fortunate. It’s easy to forget the humanities when people already have a preconceived notion to detest a group of people they could not understand. Stories of their harrowing lives are often passed on to the other homeless people through oral tradition and are not passed on to other sides of society. Their society is very secluded and it takes an open mind to see and understand them. What I’ll try to achieve with my project is to spread understanding to the class, at least.
