In this assignment, you will be required to use the key concepts of college writing and the close reading skills that we fine-tuned this semester to write a research paper analyzing the significance of liminality in Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things. This research paper must incorporate at least 5 scholarly sources, and you must also submit a proposal, annotated bibliography, and formal and final draft for this assignment. Here are some questions you might consider as your write this paper: • How does liminality operate in this text and what does this illuminate about colonialism, race, gender, or power? • How does time function? How does this shape the narrative structure of this text and why do this place both the novel itself and the reader in a liminal space? - What is the function of the History House? Using Said’s Orientalism as a lens, what does the History House symbolize? How does this connect to the end of the novel? • Analyze the caste system as a form. What role does this play in the novel and how does this connect to the love laws? Why are liminal figures such a threat to these forms? • Required Sources • You must have at least one credible review of Roy’s novel. I suggest searching The New York Times and The Guardian for a review. • Your paper should also include at least 2 scholarly peer-reviewed articles. You should find these articles must be found using CUNYOnesearch. You should also aim to have at least one chapter from a book in your essay. Please note, that this book chapter should not be from the literary work you will analyze in your paper. Instead, you should aim to have a work of non-fiction, like a chapter from Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth, Said’s Orientalism, or Levine’s Forms: Whole, Rhythm, Hierarchy, Network. o If you are unable to find a book to incorporate into your paper, you must include an additional scholarly peer-reviewed source in lieu of a chapter from a book. • For the final source of this paper, you may use one additional credible source of your choosing. You may use an interview, an additional credible review of your text, additional scholarly peer-reviewed articles, or any other credible text as the final source for your paper. College Writing II Scholarly Researched Argument Goals • Continue to work on the goals from the close reading assignment: using the introduction to orient and organize the reader and identify an intellectual problem about a piece of literature; formulating a strong thesis; establishing a clear motive; maintaining a coherent structure; supporting your argument with evidence and reasons; writing in a fluent and clear style; composing an interesting and informative title. • Have cohesion and coherence in your prose on the sentence level and on the paragraph level. Sources should be smoothly integrated into your essay. Your diction should be precise. Avoid vague sentences and cliches of language and cliches of thought. • Make sure that the stance of your argument is clear. Readers should know where your essay stands in the existing conversations about your selected work. • Analyze pertinent aspects of your novel to draw cogent conclusions • Analyze your sources, interpreting their central claims, evaluating their arguments, and explaining their significance in terms of your own claim. • Reflect and complicate your argument: consider counterevidence, counter-interpretations, counterarguments, anomalies, and draw out implications. • All sources must be documented using the MLA in-text citation method and a complete Works Cited Page. • Adhere to all relevant MLA formatting guidelines described in the course syllabus.
