Term papers should be 2000-2500 words in length. If your word processing program provides a word count, please append it to your paper. If not, aim for 8-10 double-spaced pages, with 65 characters per line. (Using a monospace font, e.g. Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, or Courier New, that allows you to fix the number of characters per inch.)
Your term papers may take the form of a standard essay, or of a book review. Below you will find examples of appropriate essay topics and books for review. You may, of course, write on other topics, or consider other books, but check with your instructor, as papers on topics or on books not well suited to the course will not be graded.
Note that good writing matters. A poorly organized, awkwardly phrased, sloppily punctuated paper could receive 20 per cent less than one showing no more knowledge, but well written.
All term papers should be submitted in two forms: in hard copy, to be graded and returned with comments, and electronically, submitted to turnitin.com. You will be advised how to submit your papers to Turnitin. Note that students’ papers that are submitted to Turnitin become part of the Turnitin database. However, you have the right to request that your paper(s) not be run through the student papers database of Turnitin. If you choose to do so, that request must be communicated to the instructor by Jan. 21.
