The response papers are a way for you to explain/describe what you have learned in the class so
far. 2 pages each. I expected you to use class readings to
support your responses. You do this by including quotes, statistics or other information directly
from the readings.
As Final Project, you
will prepare an Annotated Bibliography. This will be a 5-6 pages annotated bibliography
assignment listing 10 references. It must cover at least 3 or more of the reading materials,
and major themes and concepts from the course. You need to put the scholarly authors in a
conversation with chosen topic or subject matter of research.

Anjali Arondekar, In the Absence of Reliable Ghosts: Sexuality, Historiography,
Provide at least one example of how women’s roles changed from the colonial era through the Gilded Age (up to 1890). You may want to consider some the following: perceptions of femininity/domesticity, women’s organizations/reform, women at work, and the idea of the maternal commonwealth. Your answers should address issues of class/race and incorporate at least one of the sources we have discussed so far.
Your answers cannot be comprehensive, so focus on an aspect of women’s experiences that you can compare/ trace over time.
