AFRI 262—African Literature Guidelines for Discussion and Research Papers Discussion Paper . (Due at to-be-assigned dates) At the end of the first week in class, I will divide up the  group for assignments to do discussion papers.  These will be the focal point of the second day we are  studying each work. The purpose of these papers is to identify topics of particular interest to themes we  will encounter and to consider issues of interest to you and questions for discussion. A possible, but not  exclusive list of these might include texts that focus on identity, family, the idea of nation, social or political  conflict, visions and hopes for society. The process may go something like this: 1. Identify an excerpt in the work that is particularly meaningful to you in terms of content or style.  The excerpt could be as brief as a paragraph or as long as three to four pages in length.  You should include the text at the beginning of your paper.  2. Set forth an explanation for your choice that may include the issues you particularly want to  stress or to raise with the group. 3. Conclude with some discussion questions. These papers, not including the text of the excerpt, should be 3-4 pages in length. Research Paper.   April 15 .  (8-10 pages). Objectives
