Based on our readings and our field work you will produce short papers about a topic from the four main sections of the course. The papers must be an equal combination of readings with citations and bibliography. You should not use outside readings but focus on the assigned readings. Your papers must be at least five, double spaced pages long (Arial, 12 point font with one inch margins) with bibliography (abbreviated list of the assigned readings you used) attached after the written pages. Do NOT quote from the readings, use your own words.
