genocide and literature

Referencing and formattingshall follow guidelines stipulated in MLA Handbook (8th or 9th ed.). 

Unlike the typical academic English essays (e.g., the Response/Review Essays) that compel students todiscuss texts through a detached position, this assignment is meant to encourage the opposite: respondto texts from an involved (implicated), subjective perspective. Students are required to write a 3000-wordcritical diary/reflection in response to three texts of their choice on the required reading list. Thediary/reflection essay presents an opportunity for each student to respond to texts from their ownpersonal experience of reading/watching the materials so selected. It is also an opportunity for studentsto consolidate their thoughts and impressions of the stories they have read/watched through a close,critical reflection. Each student may reflect on what they find to be enjoyable, annoying, remarkable,memorable, terrible, traumatic, etc. in their selected texts, and explain why. Please, note that reflectionsthat unfold as followsthis XYZ scenario/incident made me feel very uncomfortable; or, her experienceof violence and abuse made me realize how privileged I am; or, I feel really sad right now after reading thisstorywill not be considered as demonstrating a critical reflection. A critical reflection will usefeelings/thoughts/impressions as a basis for thoughtfully examining or making a profound statement on(or elaborating on specific aspects of) the subject of genocide in selected texts. Your diary/reflectionmust be focused on your selected texts and not be a pretext for talking exclusively about your life or someother experiences. I will also appreciate it if students engage texts directly and not cite secondarymaterials (except very nominally).In addition, students are welcome to be creative in their critical reflection/diary response. The diary couldtake any conventional or creative PROSE form that each student finds most convenient and useful. Itcould take the form of a casual informal diary entry, a letter, a blog post, a formal/serious [yetpersonalized] essay, a creative non-fiction, etc. No poems are allowed unless they are used as elementsin a larger prose work. 

QUESTION:Using at least any THREE of the following texts, write a critical reflection/diary response on therepresentations of genocide in your selected texts: Cherie Dimalines The Marrow Thieves,Boubacar Boris Diops Murambi, the Book of Bones, Rigoberta Menchus I, Rigoberta Menchu,Joshua Oppenheimers The Act of Killing, and Steven Spielbergs Schindlers List
