Help with essay topic?
I need help coming up with a topic for an essay. This is for my senior paper, meaning it's got to be something that I can make into a really long argument for a paper. Probably something that can be stretched into about 30 pages.
I've tried and tried but can't think of anything good to do. I want to do it on something a bit more current than what everyone else is doing. My classmates are doing stuff by writers like DuBois and Shakespeare.

Can you do it on a subject such as "bullying"? or "the national debt" or I'll tell you what would be good would be to do it on hunger in the world. Below is from website http://blog.bread.org/2010/08/good-books-on-hunger...
