1History 4595: World Environmental HistoryDr. GaroneSpring 2022Research Paper AssignmentAs described in the course syllabus, each student will be required to write a researchpaper of 8–10 pages in length (16–20 pages in length for graduate students), double-spaced, with 1-inch margins, in Calibri 12-point font, on a topic in World EnvironmentalHistory of his or her choice (subject to approval by the instructor).Important Dates:Tuesday, March 15:Research Question and Sources Sheet due, with a minimum of 6sources, such as books, scholarly articles, government reports, etc. For your final paper,you will need to utilize well above 6 sources, but this initial assignment, with its 6-sourcerequirement, is intended to ensure that everyone is on track to be able to successfullycomplete the assignment. (Note: Published scholarly articles retrieved through theinternet are, of course, acceptable, but general information retrieved from websites isnot acceptable for use toward the 6 sources.) List these sources—providing fullbibliographic information—on the attached sheet. I will return the sheets to you thefollowing week.Tuesday, May 17:Research papers are due.There will also be in-class oral presentationsof the research papers on May 10 and May 17.

I will provide further instructions for the presentation at that time.Content of the Paper:Students should look over the bibliography provided on the syllabus to begin toformulate ideas for their paper; however, paper topics are not limited to subjectsrepresented in this bibliography.

Each paper shouldinclude a section on the background history of its topic, the environmental issues andenvironmental consequences involved, and the extent to which those issues andconsequences have or have not been resolved.
