Using This Guide

Welcome to the FYS A Place of One's Own research guide. Use the tabs at the top of the page to access a variety of resources relevant to the course.

This assignment invites you to compose a thesis-driven essay that is inspired by one of the following works we read: Sanburn, “Why the Death of Malls is about More than Shopping”; Kurutz, “The Next Little Thing”; Curtis, “Man Cave Masculinity.”

You will be expected to locate, read, and quote from TWO sources (in addition to the article from our FYS Canvas site). 

• a scholarly journal

• a national newspaper (in print or on the Internet)

• a significant magazine (in print or on the Internet)
