Write a 7 paragraph long essay analyzing any one of the topics listed below. You will have to use a variety of sources in order to write this essay (See Paper Requirement for specific course requirements for each topic.)  Choose one of the following topics for your essay.

1.

  1. 1918 Influenza Pandemic and the role played by women

I have provided some questions for you to consider as you organize your thoughts and your paper.  These questions should be used as guiding ideas to frame your essay. Do not just answer the topic questions listed below one by one. You are encouraged to add other issues that you deem important in your essay apart from the questions/issues I have suggested.

Guiding Questions:

  • Why do you think we need to study gender in the case of a disease outbreak?
  • How are women left out of official chronicles of a pandemic? Why is it only men who occupy center stage? This is despite women undertaking sometimes the most laborious and sustained burden of care work during a pandemic. 
  • What kinds of work done by women are made invisible during pandemics?
  • Is there a need to take a new look at  major disease outbreaks (both in history and at the present time) in terms of their gendered dimensions?
