Harvard University Eviction Urban Poverty Paper

Papers: The paper will test your ability to analyze theoretical arguments. You will turn in a short, roughly two-to-three-page response paper that addresses the readings of that theme. With regard to paper questions, I would like you to ask and answer a question about what you see as the most important ideas in the readings. Understanding the readings well enough to ask a good question about them is part of the assignment.

Those texts are:
