Here's an idea.. A thread to all us college students, who need help brainstorming for essays, articles, projects and such! I'll kick it off! >.>

/end blatant excuse to start a topic

I have to write an essay about any period in litterature or history, my choice. It's a very broad assignment, and my only ideas are:

the Depression in litterature, and it's influence on modern litterature (john steinbeck, mostly)

the development of human rights in the French Revolution (this would fall under the historical category.)

This is my first major project in college, it's supposed to be around 6-10 pages, and we each are supposed to analyze a book or a couple of short stories, if we choose litterature.. It's a very open project. So I'm hoping someone else has some helpful input! Thanks!
