In about 1000 words, typed, stapled/paper-clipped, with one-inch margins, and 12-point font, address the following.
Apply this research to Hofstadter’s argument, which first you need to explain. Is the perceived threat from Islam more similar to the historical examples of the paranoid style, or the modern right-wing? Why?
Keep in mind:
1. Write about only the relevant articles/blogs. Don’t just use the first ones you find. In other words, do your research carefully.
2. The formal presentation of the paper counts for a lot, e.g., organization, grammar, spelling, correct referencing of sources. See this link for more details.
3. I won’t accept late papers, nor will I grant extensions. If you want credit for the paper, turn it in at the GOV office in Harborview 102 by 2pm Friday Feb. 24th.
