Each essay should be approximately 5-8 pages long. Why that length? Any shorter and you won't be able to cover it decently; any longer and it's a project, not a short assignment. (Besides, this is a large class and the IAs need to read everything...)

If you ask if it should be single-spaced or double-spaced, you're doing it wrong.

A proper bibliography is required.

Papers must be submitted electronically by the start of class. Homeworks received later that day lose 5%, the next day 10%, two days late 20%, three days late 30%; after that, zero credit Exceptions granted only for unforeseeable events. Workload, day job, etc., are quite foreseeable. Problems? Contact me before the due date.
