Your topic proposal should be at least one paragraph in length with citations to at least two references (besides the book) that help support the topic you wish to research. A brief summary of these references should be included. In addition, you must provide a one (1) page, high-level outline of your paper. Draft and final versions of the research paper are due by the end of Weeks 5 and 7, respectively.
