Given our recent study of the communication issues that contribute to racial profiling, you may select any relevant current event, topical issue, or theoretical construct (e.g., hate speech, stereotypes, verbal/paraverbal/nonverbal communication) to research and explicate in a well-organized and professionally presented term paper. You are encouraged to examine the topic/s through a personally relevant, meaningful lens; feel free to integrate your own experiences and explore academic or professional areas of interest (psychology, law, anthropology, neuroscience, et al).
Papers will be collected at the beginning of class on Tuesday, November 12.
Your paper must be:
- 10-12 pages in length, excluding title and Bibliography or Work Cited* pages (*Please Note: a Bibliography includes all the sources that inform your thinking, and Work Cited means exactly that, i.e., the sources you quote/reference directly.)
- Typed in Times New Roman 12-point font and printed on 8.5" x 11" white stock
- Bound with one staple in the upper left-hand corner at a 45 degree angle (no folders or plastic slip covers)
- Well-researched, as evidenced by a Bibliography or Work Cited page that includes a minimum of 15 highly credible references (*Please Note: Five  of these references must be academic books, chapters, or peer-reviewed studies/articles.)
- Presented in Modern Language Association (MLA) style
