ANT 002 UCD Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change Response

What is a response paper? It is not a summary of the documentary—the point of a response paper is to show that you have thought with and about the documentary. Many things count as appropriate responses. You may raise a question (for instance, ask for clarification of a claim or statement you find puzzling or hard to understand); link the documentary to earlier ones or to readings; write about how it illustrates a concept that we have discussed in class; note its relevance to popular culture, politics, education, recent events, etc. You can also offer a critique, or make an argument building on the documentary.

The length can vary but it must not be longer than one-page single space (yes, you can also write one-page double space, or one paragraph single space—and no, you cannot write two or three short sentences.)
