In this workshop, we are defining position papers as brief (2-5 pages) analytical/persuasive documents that focus on arguing in favor or against a very precise and narrow topic/issue discussed in a published article. In other words, you are taking a stance (a “position”) on the issue and integrating passages from the article as examples for analysis (to argue for or against).
