Choose an issue that matters to you. Then, using concrete examples of the issue from any media of your choice, decide what needs to be changed in or about this issue.

This paper focuses on analysis, both of texts and of the world. You have two choices for the paper:

Start from some concrete passages in the novel that ask us to reconsider how we understand a key idea or issue that matters to you; then, in this paper, please explore what issue or element in our world you think needs to be reconsidered and/or changed? How would we start to go about that?

Answer this question by choosing something that matters to you or that deeply interests you. Use and discuss the framework of Exit West as a test of what key social, personal, or political elements the doors help shift. You must quote passages and explain them.

Feel free to make this sound like you. You do not need to make this fit into a template for an essay (a 5 paragraph essay, for instance).

Have fun with this—maybe this is part of your inaugural address, or an essay published by The Atlantic, or a post for your favorite blog or website, or . . . ?

Choose an issue that matters to you. Then, using concrete examples of the issue from any media of your choice, decide what needs to be changed in or about this issue. Quote passages from the works you select and analyze them to explain either what is wrong and find various sources to show how we might be able to make it right. As you explore what needs to be changed and how we should do this, discuss concrete examples of what changes in Exit West via the doors.
Feel free in this option to include images or clips from films, music etc. if you will be discussing it in the paper.

Requirements for either paper:

Include a thesis that takes a position and that answers “So what?”
Make sure you are detailed and specific (vs. broad).
Outline the conventional ways to think about the issue.
Explore alternate ways to explore the solution or reframe the problem and so on.
Include at least four pieces of research IN ADDITION TO Exit West.
Try for a conclusion that goes beyond repetition, and that gives us something new to consider.
Include a Works Cited page and use in-text citation
About 5 pages/ 2500 words or more.
