Writer’s Choice

In an essay of 250 – 350  words describe the closest experience  you have had to what the readings describe as “religious” or “unobjective.”  This need not necessarily involve “God,” but should reflect some of the characteristics of such an experience as described in the readings.  Be sure to draw analogies between your experience and what the authors of the readings describe. You must use two direct references to two different readings (or viewings) for the Module (with in-text citations and footnotes in proper MLA form).

“Selby Romance and the Male Secular Body” Article Review

I included the “Selby Romance and the Male Secular Body” article that I need reviewed. I also included an example article review. The review should be around 2 pages long.
Here are some possible steps that you can follow in developing your analysis (I emphasize “possible”
because these are suggested questions rather than a fixed template. Some questions will be more
relevant to some articles than others.)
1. Identify and briefly describe the topic and central argument of the article. What is the subject matter
of the essay? What argument does the author make about the material? What other possible arguments
and interpretations does the article attempt to refute?
2. Discuss how the author supports the essay’s argument. How does the essay’s argument unfold? What
sources does the author use? Why would these sources be relevant to the argument of the essay? How
would you characterize the academic approach (ie., historical, sociological, anthropological, literary
critical)?
3. Develop your own analysis of the article’s persuasiveness and success in accomplishing its goal. Do
you believe the essay’s argument in convincing? If so, why? If not, why not? What other kinds of
questions might the article have considered that would have been relevant to the essay? What kinds of
contributions might this essay make to the study of religion? That is, what kinds of broader problems
does the article help to explain (or fail to explain)?
Paper Format
The paper should approximate the style of an academic book review. This means that your heading
should be a bibliographic citation of the article (any style is fine) followed by a line stating “Reviewed By
[Your name].” One difference in format from an academic book review is that while most are single
spaced, the text of your paper should be double spaced (although the header citation can be single
spaced).
So your paper should begin like this:
Author Last Name, Author First Name. “Article Title.” Journal Title volume number (Publication Date):
page numbers.

Skim through the three links below to gain some background information on the taboo of drawing or depicting the Prophet Muhammad, the incident of a “draw Muhammad cartoon contest” in Texas, and the new Free Speech law in Arizona which passed last year. Then answer the question prompts fully by choosing a position and defending it thoughtfully and tactfully. Remember – this is a contentious topic and you are to be respectful. You may also choose to play “devil’s advocate” by trying to defend a position with which you don’t actually personally agree. Taboo and Restrictions on Depicting the Prophet Muhammad: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depictions_of_Muhammad -Begin thinking about why subsequent generations were uncomfortable depicting Muhammad, in contrast to other religious figures in the Abrahamic line, such as Moses or Jesus Free Speech and Depicting the Prophet in America and Europe: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtis_Culwell_Center_attack -Begin thinking about the legal protections of free speech and expression in contrast to the religious sensibilities of Muslims and the violence that can be caused when people are religiously offended Arizona’s law protecting Free Speech and Expression on University Campuses: https://www.statepress.com/article/2018/09/sppolitics-abor-releases-mandatory-report-regarding-free-expression -Begin thinking about the benefits and consequences of this law on our own campus at ASU Question prompts: Let’s say hypothetically that there is an ASU student group called “Students for First Amendment” or SFA who want to bring the organizers of the Texas “Draw Muhammad” contest, Pamela Geller and the AFDI to ASU. They apply to the University to get the space so that they can begin publicizing the event under the new Arizona free speech law and its guidelines. A local Islamic group hears about the event and demands that ASU reject the application. If you are the President of the University, what would you do: Position 1) Hold the event, in support of free speech, even though it might mean demonstrations and security threats. Position 2) Censor the event, in support of religious sensitivities, even though it might mean a lawsuit from the “Students for First Amendment” (SFA) Explain your position thoroughly, including your reasoning and the impact on both groups and the larger ASU and Arizona community. Don’t forget to illustrate your familiarity with the chapter, and consider how the general idea of pluralism plays into this issue.

For this research paper, you must write a cohesive essay that’s 6-7 pages long (double-spaced, regular fonts and margins). Compare and contrast two specific religions from two different families (to be clear, this means you should NOT be comparing, say, Christianity and Islam, or Buddhism and Hinduism): • An Indigenous religion (choose a specific tradition from somewhere in the world) • Confucianism OR Daoism • Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, OR Jainism • Judaism, Christianity, OR Islam on ONE of the following topics: • Nature of the Divine or Ultimate Reality • The creation, or origin, of the world • The end of the world • Death, dying, and/or the afterlife • Human nature • Miracles • Food • Architecture • Sex • Suffering • War and violence • Salvation/Liberation • Holy sites • The purpose of prayer • The status of women and/or LGBTQ+ people • Environmental issues • Divine possession, or the divine in human form • …Or choose your own topic to compare the two traditions (run it by me first) STRUCTURE • title page • introduction (approx. half a page), including a thesis statement • outline of how the topic is understood/explained within the first tradition (approx. 1-1.5 pages)  cite appropriate source(s) in support • outline of how the topic is understood/explained within the second tradition (approx. 1-1.5 pages)  cite appropriate source(s) in support • analysis of the main points of comparison, either similarity or contrast, between the traditions with regard to the topic (approx. 1.5-2 pages)  again, you can cite a source if relevant here, but this analysis should primarily be your own • conclusion (approx. half a page) • bibliography/works cited Note that the thesis statement is in bold, but it needs to be contextualized by the statements before. You should also include some idea of the direction of the paper (what you will do) after your thesis. For the comparative analysis, you will need to identify the main points of interest within your chosen topic – both similarities and/or differences – between the religious groups, using examples to help. Try to avoid stating the obvious here; the more subtle and/or deep your analysis, the better. The conclusion is essentially a re-stating of your thesis, plus perhaps offering some ‘food for thought’ for future analysis. you must find at least two ACADEMIC sources.
