Argumentation regarding the construction of manhood according to Rousseau

PROMT: For this assignment you must choose one* of our canonical thinkers (Aristotle, Machiavelli, Locke, Rousseau, Wollstonecraft, and Mill) and write an essay in which you make an interpretative argument regarding the role their understanding of one of the following themes plays in their political thought: ? [The Construction of] Manhood ? The Relationship between the Household and the Polity ? Ideas about Subordination/Domination *You may also choose to compare two thinkers’ (including: de Beauvoir, Fausto-Sterling, Stryker, hooks, and Lorde) ideas on these concepts, however, ONE of the thinkers you choose MUST BE CANONICAL! Additionally, you may NOT choose one of the secondary sources (Brown, Pitkin, Pateman, or Okin) as one of your theorists. GUIDELINES/RUBRIC: 1. Your paper must have an introductory paragraph with a thesis statement that provides a clear, complete, and direct answer to the question: “What role does [concept x] play in the political thought of [thinker y]?” 2. You may choose to discuss feminist critiques (Brown, Pitkin, Pateman, or Okin) of these thinkers as they relate to the question you choose, in which case you would need to articulate HOW/WHY the critique you discuss is important for answering the question. What insights does this critique offer for thinking about the concepts you are discussing? Why do you find this critique convincing or not? 3. Your paper will be evaluated by the following criteria: clarity and thoughtfulness of the central argument (including a clear thesis statement in the introduction); the organization of your paper as a defense of your thesis; the depth of engagement with the course readings; and basic writing mechanics (grammar, punctuation, avoidance of sentence fragments and run-ons). 4. You must include page numbers when BOTH citing and quoting texts, but do not need to provide complete bibliographical information unless you are referencing a different version than provided on Blackboard. Quotes should be used sparingly as analytic tools, but you must also refer to the text with citations when you paraphrasing or summarizing
