You may create your own writing prompt based on what interests you this week as long as you make an argument and draw on the readings and videos as evidence to support your position; or you may use this prompt: Global feminisms promise the world but do they deliver? Write a response equivalent to 2 pages in which you discuss the ways that art and intersectionality are represented in this week’s readings and viewings about global feminisms; and explain what makes this week’s works “feminist.” Make sure that you make an argument and use the readings and videos as evidence to support your claims.

Reflection papers function as midterm and final exams. Four prompts will be give

Reflection papers function as midterm and final exams. Four prompts will be given and students must write TWO (2) short essays for any of the three prompts. Each essay must consist of 800-1,000 words, double-spaced, 12-point font, and 1-inch margins. Include four (4) references for each response.
Important – you must properly CITE the texts!!! Citation is not quotation. DO NOT QUOTE!!! If you use quotes your response will be given a zero. You must properly understand, restate, and synthesize the argument of the author in your own words.
1) Our readings argue that birthright citizenship was a right granted to non-white people only through decades of struggle, activism, and even a civil war. The Trump administration sought to end birthright citizenship. What is birthright citizenship? What is the importance of birthright citizenship for all those born in the United States, but especially for nonwhite people? What does the term “anchor baby” mean and what does it have to do with birthright citizenship? Should birthright citizenship be eradicated or protected?
2) What is neoliberalism? What does neoliberalism have to do with immigration, detention, and deportation? What is an alternative to neoliberalism?
3) Throughout the readings in this class, a number of authors have put forth the idea of the paradox of globalization. At the same time that global capitalism expands transnationally across borders bringing down barriers to commerce and trade, there has also been a proliferation of walls and barriers built to keep people from moving freely across these same borders. Discuss three reasons why states build walls and militarize borders. Do walls and other forms of intensified border enforcement succeed at deterring the unwanted movement of people across these borders as claimed by these three reasons? What is an alternative solution for each?
4) Throughout this class we have analyzed a number of issues related to immigration. What are some solutions? If you were a politician, how would you address the immigration related issues and attempt to solve them? For this question you are to develop solutions for three (3) major issues surrounding immigration. You are free to choose any three issues we have discussed in class. It is suggested that you create an introduction and a conclusion and develop each of your solutions individually in a short paragraph.
Readings will be provided if needed

[What are the reasons for so many working mothers? What are the potential effect

[What are the reasons for so
many working mothers? What are the potential effects on children? On society?]
Choose one of the following topics and develop a 750-1000-word essay using the cause-effect
pattern of analysis. Your essay must have a relevant, significant point appropriate for a broad
readership. Remember to create a strong, precise thesis that indicates a cause-effect claim, and
use a clear topic sentence to begin each paragraph. A final note: This should be an original
analysis. Do NOT go out to the internet (or elsewhere) and merely parrot someone else’s causal
analysis. You should do your own thinking and draw your own conclusions according to the
process you’ve read about in your Longman reader chapter on this type of writing. It is fine if you
feel a need to research specific information to develop and support your analysis, but you must
not simply borrow someone else’s analysis (even if you document it clearly). The whole idea of a
cause-effect essay is for a writer to do original thinking and analysis.

Length of term papers: not more than 3.000 words (list of references not include

Length of term papers: not more than 3.000 words (list of references not included)
Table of contents: has to be numbered (1. 1.2 …)
References in the text: Have to be precise: citing the exact pages ( e.g. Ruggie, page 4-6
[not: page 4 ff.], or where available the paragraph(s) (e.g. Nevesun Ressources v. Aray, para.
81-84). A reference to a whole book or article (e.g. Ruggie, 2000) is only permitted if
reference is made to the whole idea of the paper and not only to a special argument or
assertion)

Structural violence, and inequity based on gender, class, race, and environment

Structural violence, and inequity based on gender, class, race, and environment have also become part of globalization, replicating domestic inequality on a global scale. In your essay, you will use the general dynamics we have discussed and see how they work in a specific, real world situation. write an analytic argument about Bolivia’s Water Privatization addressing the following questions: What are the sources of this inequality and how it is established and maintained? Why are the winning elites, local and global, so successful? Why are the losers having difficulty gaining recognition, let alone changing the situation despite such terrible inequality?
What role is structural violence playing? (The emphasis here is on structures. Intentional manipulation of access, laws, government policy, use of government resources, economic systems, global regulations, etc.)
How are issues of race, class, gender, and environmental justice shaping the situation? (Note that you do not have to cover all four of these. Pick the ones you think are most relevant to your case study.)
Finally, how does globalization or the interchanges between countries influence or help create the inequality you see?
You should cite, at minimum, five sources: (1) the starter article provided below for your chosen topic, (2) at least two sources from in-class materials, including articles and film clips, and (3) at least two relevant, reputable sources (articles/chapters) that you find on your own that are about your case study. Thus, if you are writing about Bolivia, find at least two more articles on Bolivia (but I suggest finding more).
Rubric:
I will grade your essay on a 100-point scale according to the following rubric:
90-100 = Fully and directly addresses the prompt; clearly states your argument or thesis statement early on in the paper; demonstrates a coherent and convincing narrative that argues for your thesis throughout the paper; meets or exceeds the indicated word count without redundant or irrelevant content; includes relevant, specific, and properly cited details from at least 5 sources total (including the source I have provided); demonstrates comprehension of issues of structural violence, and, where relevant, of gender, class, race, and environmental justice; shows evidence of careful proofreading and copy-editing.
80-89 = Lacks one of the above attributes; meets the indicated word count without redundant or irrelevant content.
70-79 = Lacks two of the above attributes but says something relevant and interesting.
0-69 = Lacks the above attributes and/or contains mostly fluff.
