Your Final for this class is to write an 8-10 page research paper (approximately 2,000 words) on one of the topics discussed in class or in the readings this semester. Potential topics for the paper are listed below. You should cite these sources in MLA, APA, or Chicago citation style in your paper (I’m not too picky on how you cite your sources, just so long as you are consistent with your style throughout). Food – Discuss how different cultures consume and conceive of food. You can write about how a specific food is viewed by a specific culture (wine in France, for example), how contemporary methods of food processing have alienated us from the food we consume, or how particular foods make it from farms to our plates (sugar for example).
