  • Moral indifference is a central theme of Elie Wiesel’s speech “The Perils of Indifference.” Additionally, Wiesel’s speech suggests that we should continue to be on the lookout for signs of moral indifference in the contemporary world. Accordingly, for this essay, students should select a contemporary moral, social, or political issue that they think has been met with widespread moral indifference.
  • Students must then provide an argument for why others should demonstrate moral concern for this issue. In making this argument, students must provide adequate contextual and background information for understanding the issue they select, but this information should only occupy a small portion of the essay.
  • Here “make an argument” means that students must provide reasons that are intended to convince the reader; students should not merely state their opinion or belief about the issue examined in the paper.
  • The essay will be 3-4 pages, double-spaced in 12pt font, have a clear thesis, introduction, body, and conclusion. Descriptions will be supported with examples, testimony, and quotes, using APA format (for both format and citations). The essay will be graded with the Dialogues Written Communication Grading Rubric.
