In your essay you should discuss both mainstream and critical approaches to your two chosen topics. You should also explain how the two topics are connected. The assignment should be 2,500 words in length (+/­ 10%, including in­text citations but excluding the list of references), and should be double spaced using a common font such as Times Roman 12 pt, and spell checked.
