Stephanie Cook March 24 Chapter 33: Power and the Language of Men, Scott Kielsing Questions for Kiesling How does Kiesling connect power and identity with males in a fraternity setting? Kielsling does this by explains how power creates a males identity in a frat. The men who have power identities will receive actual power through them. THE frat is set up in a hierarchial setting, power is very key when it comes down to who has superiority over who is allowed to do certain things, and who is respected. The power is gained when the brother is going through pledgeship. This is the time where the boys must gain their respect and power. Explain in your own words what Kiesling means by the sentence “power is action that modifies action”. Power expressed through action that modifies action mean that power is expressed through action which then creates another action to happen because the one before. The power is a force that changes another force. It is something that changes something else due to its superior standing. How does language connect to power in Kiesling’s study?
