Schedule of Assignments & Due Dates
Thesis: you must turn in your proposed thesis by January 5th
(**The professor has already approved this thesis…please use the thesis statement below only:)
Regarding the institution of slavery and intersectional identities, the Africana Bible differs vastly from the Hebrew Bible in its consideration of social roles. Therefore, the Africana Bible is an important tool for developing and practicing liberatory Christian theologies and practices.
Annotated Bibliography: This bibliography should include at least 3-5 sources outside of the required course readings. You should include a sentence or two on why this source will be used for your paper. Due January 8th.
(**Please see Annotated Bibliography attached-it has already been approved by the professor, however you must include material from the required readings for this class, they are listed below). Outline or map of your paper to provide some sort of organizational tool to indicate how your paper will be structured. Due January 15th. (** I will upload the outline/map to Bid4papers once the professor approves it, however I will submit the outline already used in the embedded document I already uploaded for the Bid4papers writer, please see bold wording in the pdf document already attached). Hopefully the professor will approve it without any corrections
Final paper: The finished paper of 7-10 pages of your interpretive argument is due January 28th.
