Write a sustained engagement with a topic related to the central themes of the class.
Your final paper should be 2,000?3,000 words, on a topic related to the central themes of the class. It should be organized around a central argument and all parts of the paper should work to support the central argument. It should have a clear structure, with an identifiable thesis, arguments, and conclusion.
Your paper should substantively engage (at least) one of the following texts we read in class: The Racial Contract (Mills), “The Emergency Manager” (Stanley), Visible Identities (Alcoff), the Combahee River Collective Statement, Seeing Like an Activist (Pineda). It can be an exegetical paper, or it can use one of these texts as a framework, or to motivate a focus on a certain problem, or it could extend an analysis or framework given by one of these texts, or perhaps some other sort of engagement. But it must engage that text in a substantive manner.
Your paper should engage (at least) one outside source that we did not engage in class. This source should be encountered in the course of careful research. (Your research should not be limited to a google search: use the library resources.) If the source is used to support claims of fact, it should be reliable. If the source is used as an example, it should be relevant. It could be, for example: a map from American Panorama other than the redlining map we engaged in class; the remaining parts of The Racial Contract, Visible Identities, or Seeing Like an Activist (we have library e-book access to each of these in their entirety); a source cited by one of the sources we engaged in class; or something else! (You may, of course, engage with the historical sources we engaged in class, but you must engage an outside source as well.)
All claims should be well-supported. Quotation (or other direct engagement, in the case of, e.g., maps) of the text(s) from class and the outside source(s) is expected.
