World Cultures and History
All research commences with a question, and it involves the examination of a topic or issue through reliance on both primary (i.e. a novel, a speech, a play, a poem, an autobiographical work, a painting, a photograph, a film, a musical composition, statistical data, interviews, etc.) and relevant secondary (i.e. scholarly) material. The objective of research is not to summarize the ideas of others; rather, it is to present an original thesis statement, which illuminates a topic while incorporating, questioning, and validating--or invalidating--the ideas of others on the subject. The bulk of the ideas in the paper should reflect your own original thoughts about, analysis and interpretation of, primary material, including relevant course readings. Moreover, the paper, which must arise from and relate to the focus of the course and its theme, “World Cultures and History,” may be interdisciplinary in its approach, and thereby relate to both English and another discipline, such as history or political science, for example, depending upon its focus. The relevant literary, rhetorical, historical, and/or other terminology should be utilized to present the ideas set forth in it as well. The primary and secondary material under examination may include those works listed in the Course Plan section of the syllabus as required course reading.
Research papers that do not address any of the required literary works (e.g. the writings of Borges, Douglass, Faulkner, Jacobs, Sophocles, or Wa Thiong’o, among others) should focus on the subject of one of the following*: 1) the U.S. (or global) economic crisis; 2) a global or domestic human rights, women's rights, or a civil-rights issue; 3) the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; 4) domestic or global terrorism--be it from an historical or contemporary perspective; 5) U.S. foreign policy (toward underdeveloped nations); 6) the indigenous Americans' continued struggle for equality throughout Central and South America; 7) an historical issue, like slavery, the Jewish Holocaust, Armenian, Rwandan, Tasmanian, Somali, Croatian, or Sudanese genocide; American Indian enslavement and colonization in North America; 8) the portrayal of a group or groups in the Hollywood film industry; 9) female slavery or oppression in Israel, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America or North America; 10) affirmative action and/or reparations; 11) poverty in a particular region of the world or among a particular segment of American society; 12) the recent wars in Iraq and/or Afghanistan; 13) an historical or contemporary cultural, social, or political agent of change; 14) China, the emerging super power; 15) the impact of natural disaster in a particular region; 16) the effects of environmental pollution in America (like the BP oil spill) or elsewhere; or 17) the life and influences on the music of Janis Joplin, the fine art of Vincent Van Gogh, or Jacob Lawrence, for instance; pre-Columbian or slave culture, including the Alvin Ailey Dancers’ theatrical interpretations of the spirituals.
I would say 8/9 pages is enough

English is my second language, so the paper has to be simple
