Mara B.
Answer:

What topic are you looking for? Do you have to meet a quota for resources or how long is the project? What is your thesis and what sort of evidence do you need to support it? Counter evidence? Are your resources limited to specific dates? Do they need to be peer-reviewed? Do your materials have to be from journals or can you take information from books and alternative media such as documentaries?

Question:

How can epistolary works show the development of the narrator throughout the work?

Inactive

Answer:

Because epistolary works are a series of independent letters over a span of time there are several ways to show change. The first is the most obvious at first glance which is writing style. The narrator may shift their writing style to reflect a shifting world view or maturation. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" does both. Charlie the narrator's style becomes more fluid and less choppy throughout the book and as he matures and becomes more active in his own life his writing style becomes more introspective and willing to ask about the things happening around him. Epistolary works can also show change through the subject matter. Narrators who focus more on themselves and then shift to outside topics over time can reflect a change in morals or priorities.

Question:

How does the presence of Neanderthal DNA in the human genome change how we view species?

Answer:

We typically view species as being unable to successfully reproduce with other species and physically distinguishable from other species. Neanderthals are larger in braincase size and in the body than Homo sapiens and are classified by modern researchers as a different species. Yet there is evidence in the genome of modern caucasian humans and the fossil record that Neanderthals and Homo sapiens regularly interbred. This could mean that our definition of species is flawed or that species itself is a fluid concept and continues to evolve much as our understanding of the fossil record continues to evolve.
