Final Paper Outline

A Work Through Time. This is a study of an essay, short story, novel, play, song, painting,

photograph, etc. from the Harlem Renaissance era, with special attention to the Ways in

and reinterpretation, a pieces value changing over time with social or cultural change. An

excellent analysis would situate the importance of the work in light of criticism from its

time, show the way views about the piece changed over time, and produce an original

insight that explains this change in the reception over time. Possible pieces include any of

James Van Der Zee’s portraits of Black New Yorkers and/or the emerging Black middle

class (see the ” Harlem on My Mind” exhibit), WI nold Reiss’s sketches of the ” New Negro

Pantheon” for the 1925 Harlem Mecca of the Negro issue of Survey Graphic, Meta Vaux

Warrick Fuller’s ” Ethiopia Awakening,” and so forth.
