The paper should be at least 500 words in length, double spaced, properly cited (in MLA format). The book can be obtained in a couple of ways — one, through a library or by buying the book, choice is yours. Another possibility is to do a cultural analysis of a movie. Any movie that shows interaction between two identifiable cultures is fair game. Avatar is one, Cowboys and Aliens is another. As long as there is cultural conflict give it a shot. If in doubt, shoot me an email. And as with the first paper, it should be at least 500 words in length, double spaced, properly cited (in MLA format).
