For this week’s blog entry, please submit your proposal for the final term paper.

Your proposal should include:
1) A statement of your thesis, which you will argue for and defend.
2) A statement of the main objection to your thesis, which you will respond to.
3) A summary of articles, authors and ideas which you will use in your argument.

Remember that your final papers are to be 10-15 pages (12 pt. TimesRoman, double-spaced), and will be due on Friday May 9, at 5pm, unless you make other arrangements with me by May 1st.

Papers should be submitted electronically (by email) to me at pasaro@rci.rutgers.edu, and should be in MS Word doc, or Adobe PDF format.

Remember also that this paper represents 40 points out of 100 for your semester grade.

Do not forget to comment on the blog posts of your classmates. You need at least 6 comments for the semester.
