Papers. All three papers will be worth 100 points each.  All papers must answer all three of the assigned questions for that paper.  Each answer to each of the three questions must draw upon and properly cite 2 peer-reviewed anthropological publications (books or journal articles) that take opposing positions. The answer to each question should be 500 words in length, so that the total length for each of the three papers is 1500 words. Papers will be graded on the quality of the writing, the quality of the sources used, and the logic of your argument about which position is most correct.
