Any topic (writer’s choice)
In MLA format, write an essay about Dave Eggers The Circle, discussing how Mae’s identity is affected by one of the following concepts that we discussed in class: simulacra and simulation; communist ideology/Marxism; panopticism/surveillance; gamification/external motivation. Remember to include a thesis statement near the end of your introductory paragraph, which should answer an implied question, solve a problem, or resolve a paradox about how the topic affects Mae’s identity.
This is not a book report, so do not summarize the text unless you are providing context for your reader. For this project you must include a Works Cited Page, which should consist of at least one entry: The Circle.
