For this essay, you MUST discuss at least one reading from the course. This entails more than incorporating a single quotation. The discussion should make a substantial contribution to the argument. You can use the readings for evidence or to develop a conceptual framework for the paper. You should show that you can read carefully and with understanding and insight.
