(Note that there must be 2 different essays)
Instructions: Answer the question from each section, in essay format. Be sure to respond to all parts of each question and draw upon examples from course readings, lectures, and films when relevant. Each answer must be at least 750 words long (about 2 ½ double-spaced pages) and must be organized into paragraphs with clear topic sentences. All together, aim for 5-6 pages of writing, but don’t worry if you go over the suggested length.
A. Choose any THREE of the following individuals—Mother Ann Lee, John Humphrey Noyes, Joseph Smith, and William Miller—and imagine that they are engaged in a conversation about the state of 19th-century American society. Try to focus on one or two key themes (examples include but are not limited to: gender relations, family, the nature of work, understandings of salvation). Write an imaginary dialogue between these three people. You can structure the dialogue any way you want. Perhaps two get caught up in a debate, while the other tries to keep the peace. Or perhaps all three offer their insights on a single topic, or perhaps their differing assumptions cause them to “talk past” one another to a large degree. Be sure to demonstrate a thorough grasp of all relevant course readings, lectures, and films as you structure the dialogue.
A. Religion and ethnic identity are often closely intertwined. Compare the relationship between religion and ethnic identity in TWO of the following case studies: Feher, “Managing Strain, Contradictions, and Fluidity,” Kurien, “Becoming American by Becoming Hindu,” and Lee, “Creating a Transnational Religious Community.” What are some of the challenges faced by people in each of these cases? Compare the religious practices that members of each group draw upon as they negotiate their ethnic identity.

A note on citations and avoiding plagiarism
All direct quotations must be placed in quotation marks with the page number listed in parentheses, along with the author’s name, unless you mention the author’s name in the same sentence. You do not need a bibliography unless you cite sources from outside of class. Do not start a sentence with a quotation. Here is an example of proper citation:
As Ines Talamantez notes, “cultural continuity today is also reflected in the way that myths are told” (145).
While a few well-chosen quotations can strengthen your answers, avoid excessive dependence on quotations. Keep in mind that any phrase longer than four words that is directly taken from another work must be in quotation marks, or it will be considered plagiarism.
