I believe that the Intolerable Acts had more of an effect on the colonists. I say this because after the Stamp Act was passed the colonists did things like boycott and protest. Although, after the Intolerable Acts the colonists all gathered together and decided they needed to make everyone aware of their suffering and declare freedom from British rule.
The Arts of the Contact Zone by Mary Louise Pratt opened up a whole new concept for our class. The new term “contact zone” appeared and Pratt defined it as "social spaces where cultures meet, clash, and grapple with each other, often in contexts of highly asymmetrical relations of power, such as colonialism, slavery, or their aftermaths as they are lived out in many parts of the world today." The idea of the contact zone is intended in part to contrast with ideas of community that trigger much of the thinking about language, communication, and culture.
1) The Stamp Act Congress consisting of twenty-seven delegates from nine of the colonies. They met and passed resolutions that were meant to make Parliament repeal the Stamp Act. However, they still insisted that they were subjects of the king. They never tried to split themselves from Britain. In fact, while they were protesting taxations without representation, they still claimed obedience to the government. All they wanted was to reform the acts, not stop being British or remove all British government. By the definition given, they were trying to remove the imperfections, as they saw it, of the stamp act to make the British government over them better.
Throughout our lives we find ourselves associating with different groups of people. The thing that makes all the difference is the impact one make when one finds himself/herself part of a discourse community. Whether you impacted the community or the community impacted you, it still matters. The Navigator Program at DFW Airport was my community. Much of my personality and social skills come from my time volunteering at the airport. Through this program, I learned to guide travelers to their gates and terminals, while continuing to learn about the little nooks and cranny’s that the airport held. I’ve grown much since that scared teen who was afraid of interacting with strangers, but my experiences and how they nurtured me are what changed my life for the better.

The stamp act was a British tax enacted on the colonies by the parliament in 1765. The act taxed all paper items from important legal documents to playing cards and the stamp prices would vary by a the type and content of paper. People would have to pay the stamp distributor for their paper which was so crucial to the British government that counterfeiting stamps was punishable by death. The act was passed to pay for the French- Indian war. And although the intentions were good there was an uproar of mixed reactions all over America. The general public opposed the act and acted in violent matters and even burned one stamp distributors house down. The richer public would say that they were against those "barbaric ways" and would petition the government instead , but their outcries were ignored. The stamp collector's also

First of all, as a Patriot, we colonists have been pretty mad lately.

Two years later, 1765, Parliament has passed the Stamp Act. This made us colonists pay for a tax put on all printed materials, newspaper, wills and playing cards too. The British officials had applied the stamp after the tax was paid. The Stamp Act taxed us without are consent.

I really do detest doing this. I love you, but perhaps I will soon cease to send these letters. As you know, we Americans must now pay for every piece of paper that we use. It will cost me much to send my love to you, but it will cost you little to do the same. Of course, you have heard of the King’s new law by now. It’s called the Stamp Act, and was passed 19 days before I write this: November 1. We now have to pay a tax for every piece of paper that we buy. Even wills are taxed.
