Question:

In most long form essays, what are the functions of a successful "conclusion" paragraph or section?

Answer:

A successful conclusion will both remind the reader of the writers' main arguments, and at the same time move the writer onto a bigger picture, or sequential question on the subject of the essay. A fantastic conclusion could prompt a second essay altogether.

Answer:

The first portion of Judith Butler's groundbreaking text focuses on the idea of gender as performance. Butler argues that gender is less of a set, finite, and immovable identity and instead a sum of each action and decision we make in our day to day: adding up to our performance. In other words, one "performs" their gender in how they move through the world. The consequences of this renewed definition of numerous, such as they suggest that if gender is performed, it is therefore *changeable*.

Subject: US History

Question:

Thomas Jefferson is remembered for many talents beyond the grandeur of authoring the Declaration of Independence and leading our nation as president. He was an avid record keeper, a farmer, and a gourmet. However, no one man could find the time of day to master all of these subjects—which important figures in Jefferson's day to day made this lifestyle possible?

Answer:

It was the enslaved people who were, by law, Jefferson's property, who enriched Jefferson's life and hobbies. Thomas Jefferson grew up in a white, wealthy and slaveholding Virginian family. As an adult, he bought several farm properties, among them the well known Monticello estate. He owned several hundred enslaved African and African American people, among them the Hemings family, who were the former property of his wife's family. Sally Hemings served as Jefferson's romantic and sexual companion for much of his later life. Sally's brother, Peter, was a professionally trained chef and brewer who headed the culinary affairs of Jefferson's estates. Both of these enslaved individuals accompanied Jefferson in his years in Paris.
