This paper should be a comparative analysis of some aspects of American identity. “Comparative” means that you need to compare two or more identities, representations, experiences, etc. and come to some conclusion about them; in other words, this paper must be arguing for something. So, to use the sample topic of representations of different races in the NFL versus the NBA, you might argue that “The NBA represents black male athletes in a more positive way than the NFL.” The paper will be 4-8 pages long, and you are expected to cite readings from the course, as well as any outside sources necessary. A “Works Cited” page in MLA format must be attached to the final paper, but will NOT count towards the page length requirement.
