black study 1
The third essay
For the term paper, you may study a (Black) national literature, distinguished writer, text or any group of works that present a coherent framework for analysis. Focus on under-researched areas, like Black writing in Latin America are, especially encouraged. Critical analysis of a work, for example, may explore such issues as race, gender, class, identity, form, style, culture, characterization or the interplay of such elements in the narrative or meaning construction process. Since this is not a â€œliterature appreciationâ€ class, whether you like or dislike a particular work or writer, for example, is peripheral. Pay attention, therefore, to substantive issues as they are raised in or by each text. (the term paper at least 1700 words)
The term paper must have a title, be written in the MLA format, show originality, demonstrate thorough mastery of pertinent issues, and include full bibliographical annotations, especially as plagiarism constitutes grounds for failing this course and, possibly, recommendations for further disciplinary action by the Academic Senate. All are advised to proofread and edit their paper thoroughly before submission.
