I have provided all of the relevant chapters for the books we read. Needs to be a strong introduction, the thesis that makes a claim, body paragraphs with topic sentences, and a conclusion. some summary is ok but there must be lots of quotes and analysis that relate back to the thesis. The topic is pretty open just pick a theme you can write the most/best on. There must be. outside sources that strengthen your analysis. Minimum of 10 total separate sources. Below are the instructions that were given to the class.
Purpose: write an essay that critically responds to your favorite set of literary and cultural text(s) we have read and analyzed in class, using academic articles to provide deeper context, theoretical lens, and arguments to support or complicate your interpretations of course texts.
How: Themes from the class such as identity, violence, resistance, imperialism, or oppression can help you identify texts from the course (literature, films, and comics) that will allow you to make an argument, or pose a question, that you will support and explore with academic research. Using some of the research material from the short papers (at least 10 sources), you can write about any of the intersecting topics discussed in class that highlight the “interconnectedness” that Keating discusses in relation to Anzaldúa’s work and others. These topics include intersectionality, citizenship, religion, physical ability, gender, sexuality, class, race and cultural identity. You can draw on a theoretical idea from Keating, Anzaldúa, or from any of the academic sources that might provide a guiding idea or interpretive lens for analyzing the course texts you choose to make an argument about. Students will meet with me for the assignment, and we’ll discuss this together before and as you set out to work on it.
Why: This piece of writing will help demonstrate how you have critically engaged with the course texts, academic database research, and critical thinking with regard to elements of diversity, inclusion, perspectives, and ethics. This will assess course goals and core learning objectives:1.2, 1.3, 1.4 for D.
What to include:
A unique introduction that identifies the themes for the course texts that will be discussed (hint: personalized introductions are more unique & engaging).
Brief summary of course texts demonstrating how they connect with specific theme that will be discussed
A thesis that answers aspects of who, where, what, why, and how. Ex. ((where)In “The Mimi’s” and “Aria,” (who)Richard Rodriguez and Domingo Martinez (what) demonstrate different aspects about assimilation and identity, (how) through their depiction of young people trying to fit into the dominant culture (why) to show how oppression can be internalized.)
Topic sentences that argue a specific aspect related back to the central thesis of the essay.
2-3 quotes per paragraph (ex. one class text & one academic; 2 class texts & one academic)
Quotes from academic sources can or should support, complicate, or refute interpretation;
Analysis about course texts in relation to academic sources that is insightful and demonstrates connections between aspects of the course texts and scholarship;
Headings recommended to organize sections of paper (ex. Introduction, Background/Theory for interpretation, Analysis, Conclusion)
20 pages (not including work cited/bibliography)
Incorporation of a meaningful number and collection of class texts
MLA format (i.e., in-text citation with last name and page number, works cited)
Relevant quotes from at least 10 academic sources

Write you own short story that imaginesa Latinx future with purpose. For example: to show possibilities or present a pathway to a better future or to critique the current or past reality/highlight previous injustice/misrepresentation. You can imagine a eutopian (ideal) future or a dystopian future (or anything in between).Your short story must respond to the following: what kind of Latinx future would you like to imagine?Whatever future you imagine, you should base it in part on secondary source research. Your short story shouldsynthesizeresearch oneithera specific element ofLatin American or Latinx diaspora culture, historical moment, and/or a Latinx humanities concept.For example, Alex Rivera’s Sleep Dealerwas inspired both bythe Bracero program (andU.S. immigration policymore broadly)and the Cochabamba Water War, both of which he researched before writing his film. He used his research topresents a dystopian future largely to critique current practices as history, but also to present a path towards a better future.Gina Ruiz “Chanclas & Aliens”was inspired by cholo/chola culture as well as the experience of Chicanxs in the U.S. Through this story, Ruiz imagines a future where negative stereotypes about cholos/asare subverted tosave the world. Her futureisn’t a utopian one, of course,as we see they are still suppressed by white supremacy, but it certainly subverts stereotypes and recasts that form of Latinidad (while also critiquing the police state).If you select the short story option, you’ll also need to write a short 1-2 page explanation that explains 1) how your short story was informed by your research and 2) connects your work to at least 2 texts from the course.
