Please use either .docx or .doc format (in Word). The new due date for uploading your second paper is: Friday Oct. 30, 5pm.
4-6pp., double-spaced. You may write on any work not yet discussed that we've studied in this course so far—from The Arabian Nights to Frida Kahlo. This time you should incorporate a counter-argument into your analysis, focusing on an interpretation of a key detail or details that you disagree with. For guidelines on exploring counter-arguments and why they are useful in analytical papers, see the general paper guidelines and resources above, the "counter-arguments" link. We'll also discuss ways to use a counter-argument in class before the paper's due date. If you'd like one-on-one advice about paper #2 before you complete it, set up a meeting with Prof. Schmidt. Once you have a draft of your paper, you're also welcome to set up an appointment at the Writing Center in Trotter—just don't try to get an appointment at the last minute, such as a day before the paper's due.
