long-term poverty in countries such as Burkina Faso?

door syndrome" in U.S. prisons?

9:30 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

WR 121 - Robbins *jr

The final essay is a 5-6 page essay with three outside (of class readings) sources. It isn't a research paper, as the ideas must be based in their experiences and not based on outside information, but they need to find other authored sources talking about the ideas to add dimension and support to their thesis.

The essay must include an idea from one of the class readings, which include a variety of thinkers:
Germaine Greer, Nietzsche, Emerson, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Machiavelli, Lao-Tzu, and Plato.
