Paper

You have a lot of threads that you can explore in your paper that are related to topics we have discussed in class (in fact, that is why I chose these topics to discuss in class). You may want to provide information from alternative sources to help you write a complete paper. I am working on filling in this list and it will grow with links over the next few days. I have provided partial citations so you can try to get them on your own as well.
