Professor’s Comment:the general topic of the politics of gender and race in WSS is fine, but please think about your thesis carefully: i.e., what do you want to say about these issues? what is your analytical point? what is the “argument” of your paper? And yes, you should do some limited research about Rhys’ biography, but the majority of your research should focus on journal articles or books/book chapters that deal with issues of race and gender in WSS. If you remember our discussion of Gordimer today, please think about how we discussed the journal article by Michael Neill and what you learned from it about an effective thesis, analytical approach, and textual and research support. Similarly, you can use an article on Rhys as guidance on how to write an effective essay on the topic you mention above.
