HPS319 - Essay topics Here is a list of broadly defined topics for your essay. Select a topic listed below as the subject matter of your essay. It is important to choose a topic that you find interesting and intriguing. The topics listed below are fairly general. You MUST narrow down the subject matter of your essay to a more specific theme by examining particular events or historical processes that are closely related to the periods covered by the course. In choosing the theme of your essay, you should keep in mind that it is advisable to focus on shorter rather than longer historical periods . Writing an essay that covers long historical periods requires a very good command of your sources, and in general is much more difficult. By contrast, writing on specific events and shorter periods allows you to make the argument more specific and informative. Essays are due on December 6, so you should start working on your essay NOW . Research papers should be about 2000-2500 words (excluding notes and bibliography) and must contain a minimum of 5 sources, at least one of which should be a primary source . An essay should include notes and a bibliography.
