The Jungle’s author, Upton Sinclair, famously quipped about his novel, “I aimed at the public’s heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach.” · What do you think Mr. Sinclair meant when he said this? Explore. · How was the novel connected to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906? · Do you think the meat production industry in the early 1900s needed to be regulated? · Do you think it needs to be regulated in today’s world? Also explore these issues in your paper: The world described in The Jungle still exists Sweatshops, poor working conditions and slave wages have been a problem since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. While it is now rare to find a sweatshop in America, the problem has definitely been exported overseas. The recent textile factory fires and building collapse in Bangladesh again focused the world's attention on this issue. In late November 2012, a fire in a Bangladeshi textile factory killed over 100 workers. Another fire which just occurred in early 2013 killed more textile workers in Bangladesh. Then on April 24, 2013, an eight-story building outside the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, that housed several garment factories collapsed killing over 1,000 factory workers. As NPR's Scott Neuman, wrote “The April 24 collapse of Rana Plaza, where apparel was made for several Western retailers, has sparked an international outcry over substandard working conditions in Bangladesh, where workers have some of the lowest wages in the world and the garment industry is largely unregulated.” Is it ethical for business owners to export jobs America to third world countries? Explore fully. Is it good business to allow products to be manufactured by workers in sweatshops who are not paid a living wage? Is there a solution to this problem? Explore. Legislation is typically a reaction to crises The passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act was intimately connected to Upton Sinclair’s expose in The Jungle. Are there any other books that have influenced the passage of legislation in America? Also explore other crises that have led to the passage of significant legislation – like the Great Depression, race relations in the 20thCentury, destruction of the environment, the 2008 economic meltdown. What legislation was passed in the wake of these crises? How was the legislation supposed to work? Did it work?

04 Research Paper
A research paper is one of the requirements for successful completion of this course. Because you are taking an accelerated version of a course offered at every university across America, your paper will not be as long or require as many sources. In all other respects, the requirements remain the same.
Think of this paper as an expanded version of the other essays you will write in this course. In addition to being longer, this paper also requires you to use as evidence not only facts from the literary text but also information gathered from other sources. Because you are writing a paper on a literary topic, your sources will be reviews, literary criticism, and /or essays written by expert authors. As always, it is important that you write from credible, reliable, and intellectually appropriate sources.
Please use the following as guideline for the work.
1. The paper will be at least 2000 words.
2. You will use at least four secondary sources in addition to the literary text or texts you are analyzing. For our purposes, primary sources include the actual story, poem, or play under discussion while the secondary sources are articles written about those texts.
3. All sources must be correctly documented in MLA style. Refer to your Hacker guide or the Purdue Online Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/) for reference to this.
4. Your paper will include both in-text (or parenthetical) citations and a Works Cited page. This will not be included in your word count. All works you consult, including the bibliographical information for the story, poem, or play must be included. For help, please view:

Assessed project: Qualitative project guidelinesPreferred language style UK English
If you choose to write up the qualitative project option, you will find the materials from weeks 8 and 9 particularly useful, but may find it useful to refer back to earlier sessions too (e.g. week 1 on the philosophical issues underpinning research).
Your project report should feature your analysis of one of the interview transcripts from the TQRMUL dataset (http://www.pnarchive.org/Webdocs_not_nof/tqrmul/dataset/). If you wish, you may attempt to analyse more than one interview, but it is not necessary to do so. Indeed, at this stage it may be more useful to undertake a detailed analysis of one interview than try to take on too much and doing it relatively superficially. You should use the ‘playscript’ version of the transcript for your analysis. Your research question is: ‘What does friendship feel like?’
As discussed in the lecture and practical sessions in week 9, you should use thematic analysis. You will need to go through the stages outlined by Howitt and Cramer (2011; see also Braun & Clarke, 2006).
You should write-up your report in the format outlined on the lecture slides in week 9. Please note that this is slightly different to the format outlined in the skills session in Week 4. There are important differences between the format of qualitative and statistical research reports.
