Assignment guidelines:

The goal of this assignment is to make sure that you are actively and critically engaging with the assigned texts. Rather than summarizing, this is a space for you to develop your own analysis of the material.

Questions it may be helpful to consider in writing your reflection: What are the main arguments? Do you find them convincing? Why or why not? What points of comparison can you identify among these texts, and how do they relate to one another? How do these texts relate to larger themes and topics of the course? What questions do these texts bring up for you?

**Please respond to the documentary film in relationship to the Halberstam piece and at least one of the Wilchins essays.
