Please write an essay on one of the topics listed below.

TEST: CHOOSE  ONE OF THE COURSE TOPICS WE HAVE DISCUSSED IN CLASS (see below).

The point of your essay is to  summarize key concepts (and people) for the categories of critical theory we have studied thus far (information from the book chapter) and then link that information to the specific essays we have studied. This test is intended to provide the opportunity to reflect on how well you have  assimilated the material. You should, therefore, focus on  synthesizing your ideas and  analyzing the material rather than compiling an exhaustive, comprehensive, encyclopedic list of random facts. Please make sure to organize your comments within paragraphs and include an introduction and conclusion. Also provide references for any direct quotations.

Your essay should be two-to-three pages of typed, double- spaced text (12-pt. font). If you include direct quotes from the reading, please use quotation marks and cite your source using in-text citations). You may use your notes and books/essays to answer the questions.
