This is a final paper for graduation from undergraduate school so it is very important and I expect excellent work.
I would like you to read a book called “Slow Violence” by Rob Nixon, and use this book as your source number one for writing this research paper. When you read the book, you will understand the topic that I would like you to research.
You will also have to come up with new ideas and thoughts to build on the topic of the book. It is like a dissertation where I will have to present a new view on an existing topic.
An attachment will have some instructions to follow.
Please try to give me a first draft even if the work isn’t completed yet in 5 days if possible just to show my professor that I have started my research.
SENIOR SEMINAR FINAL PAPER
In our seminar, we have experienced multiple ways to study the general yet significant themes of Love and Death. Our goal has been to explore these themes in connection to our own values and own moralities. The final project for senior seminar is your final project at this University. The simple goal is that you produce a work you are proud of and that you are willing to share with various communities.
With this in mind, I invite students to be ambitious in choosing a subject and form that connects to our seminar. From the very beginning, our goal in this seminar has been to see Love and Death as starting points to discover and unravel so many issues confronting human existence. From the political to social and from the philosophical to the sacred, our readings allow us to follow many paths. Please choose your own specific path for a project that includes rigorous scholarship, strong curiosity, and creative thinking. Your final project must either be a 15-20 page essay of original thought or you must choose a project that reveals your abilities in research, expression, and argument. I am willing to discuss individually your options. However, whatever you choose, your goal is to attain a level of excellence that will impress all of us at the end of the semester.
