PAPER GUIDELINES Papers must be analytical or argue a point that is not an established fact.
Papers must be 1,500 words (not including bibliography). You must cite six sources…at least four print sources, no more than two can be web sources. Follow MLA format.
Choose any TWO of the following questions. Read each question carefully, answer all parts, and STICK TO THE TIME PERIODS ASKED ABOUT IN EACH ONE. Responses should be about 750 words per question (about 1,500 words total for the two questions not including bibliography).
For each question you must use at least three different sources per question and have an in-text citation from each source (you can paraphrase as well but you must include a direct quote. NO BLOCK QUOTES). Of the three sources, only one can be a Web source; the other two must be print sources (the Hillman text, other books, journal articles, etc). Cite in MLA format.
Due: 12/18 by 11:59pm.
If you have trouble with the questions or are unsure about something, ask me right away.
Select a political poem written by any Latin American author. DO NOT PICK SOMEONE FROM SPAIN. Analyze the poem, state what movement it belongs to (Romanticism, modernism, avant-garde, etc), and why it fits that literary movement. Be careful with this one… remember these movements lasted during certain years, but focus more on how they fit the period. ALSO, DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE AUTHOR, focus on your analysis.
What were the main causes for the decline in the Catholic Church’s influence in Latin America during the second half of the 20th century? Does the future look more promising now that there is a Pope from the region?
With the possible exception of the Catalina de Erauso, all the early conquistadors were male, as were the “liberators” of the early nineteenth century. Yet women—Spanish, Indian, and African—played an important role in the history of colonial Latin American too. Analyze the role and status of Latin American women between the sixteenth and the early nineteenth century (1500s-1830s). Does it change in a positive direction, or remain the same?
