The Dog Delusion

Read the following essays from CEL Ch. 8, Making Arguments, in preparation for this discussion: “The Dog Delusion” (Pedersen), CEL Ch. 8, p. 225-229.”Cruelty, Civility, and Other Weighty Matters” (Paulin), p. 230-239″Hive Talkin’: The Buzz around Town about Bees” (Scollon), p. 240-244. After you have read all three essays, read the following questions, and think about how you want to respond: Of the three essays, which essay interested you the most? Why? For instance, was the topic closer to your own interests than the other essays? Did the writer manage to draw you in despite your lack of initial interest? In Ch. 6, the CEL suggests that all writers write with “broad” and “specific” purposes in mind (170). For the essay that you found the most interesting, how do you imagine the writer developed a connection to the “broad purpose” of their topic (also list what that broad purpose is)? Is it clear that the writer already had a passion for the topic through personal experiences or relationships? What do you think the writer’s “specific purpose” is in writing? What do they hope to achieve, and is this hope stated directly? How does the writer’s intensity and passion for the topic show in their writing?

Globalization and its Discontents

With this assignment, you will read and review Globalization and its Discontents. The goal of a book review is to summarize the author’s main argument and the evidence/points used to make that argument. You must also evaluate how they have done so: does their methodology seem sound? What data/evidence do they use? What is their role in the world they are writing about? What might they have done better? What did do they do well? Please note that it is not just your opinion of what they have done, but you must use examples/evidence from the text. You should evaluate how much/what you learn about the main topic (spoiler alert: development and globalization). Below is a link to UNC’s Writing Center, in which they discuss book reviews and I highly recommend you take a look. I have also added to Blackboard an example of a book review I wrote & published on a different text so you have some sort of frame of reference. This assignment should be at least 3 pages double-spaced Times New Roman 12-pt font with 1-inch margins with Chicago Author-Date citations (you’ll need parenthetical citations when you’re quoting directly, even though I know what text you’re pulling from).  Link to UNC page: https://writingcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/book-reviews/  Chicago Author-Date style citations https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-2.html
