THE USE AND ABUSE OF POWER
Mr. Ned Gallagher
Paper Assignment #1
Choose one of the following questions and answer in a thoughtfully constructed 2-3 page essay that makes specific textual references:
Outside research is not expected but you are free to consult other sources, either traditional or electronic, but be sure to cite them in a brief bibliography. Parenthetical footnotes or endnotes are fine. Citations from Watchmen should refer to chapter, page, and panel number. If you are unsure about citations or any other aspect of this assignment, feel free to contact me. Don't forget to include "The Pledge."
The ONLY acceptable ways to submit papers in this course are: (a) hand it to me in class; (b) enclose it as an e-mail attachment--Microsoft Word or a text file, please; or (c) leave it with my secretary in the athletic department office. Do NOT put your paper in one of my mailboxes or slip it under the door of my office or my apartment.
