Use the guidelines below to learn the differences between thesis and purpose statements. In the first stages of writing, thesis or purpose statements are usually rough or ill-formed and are useful primarily as planning tools. A thesis statement or purpose statement will emerge as you think and write about a topic. The statement can be restricted or clarified and eventually worked into an introduction. As you revise your paper, try to phrase your thesis or purpose statement in a precise way so that it matches the content and organization of your paper.

Thesis Exhibition featuring Kalyn Fay Barnoski : in search of ourselves, we find each other. This multimedia exhibition is available online at insearchofourselves. Challenging societal individualism, the exhibit focuses on collective, relational creativity using Indigenous frameworks and methodologies for community, based on Barnoski's Tsa-la-gi Cherokee and Mvskoke Muscogee upbringing. Her vision is truly transformative and pivotal in our current time. Perception, self-location, community relations, honoring past and future and reciprocity are the five frameworks Barnoski implements in her work.
