Reading papers

  • write an analytic essay about 2-3 pages long on the readings assigned. These papers should engage with the critical issues and themes that connect the assigned texts. In other words, rather than describing or summarizing one text at a time, you should think about some of the common themes, questions or issues that run through the different texts. Papers should engage with those critical issues and discuss what each of the texts reveals about those issues, what they reflect about Chinese women’s lives, or what ideas they convey about Chinese women in society.
