Fordham College at Lincoln Center

- an in-class presentation, approx. 30 minutes plus discussion
- a midterm research paper, about 5-7 pages (1500-2000 words) in length
- a final term research paper, about 8-10 pages (2500-3000 words) in length

The in-class presentations by different students must all be on different topics. (Your term paper topic other than your presentation topic can be the same as another student's topic.) When deciding what topic to choose for your presentation, consult the schedule of presentations posted on the class web page to find out what topics have already been taken.

The research papers must be based on research and written in proper
scholarly style, with references for all sources consulted. See the
*MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers* or similar work for
guidelines on proper citation style. The topic of one paper is to be
the same as your presentation, but you may (should) go into greater
depth and cover a broader range of aspects of the topic than your
presentation did. For instance, overlap with another student's
presentation topic is not a problem for your paper.
