Chemical warfare in WW1
We cannot tell the story of the War—but a careful selection and examination of certain sources in conversation with one another might yield a partial understanding of this complicated global conflict. Following your own interests and inclinations, pull together a collection of sources (according to the categories below) and construct a viable version of one aspect, experience, or portion of the Great War. Narrow down to a manageable parameter, such as a particular battle or location (the Somme, Ypres); nationality; or timeframe. You might choose to explore prisoners of war, women who worked as nurses, amputees, technology. You might pursue a single person through his or her wartime experience, using letters, criticism, literature, and cultural documents. The kind of targeted examination you want to undertake is something along the lines of Chemical warfare.
• deal substantially with a minimum of four sources in the following categories:
a literary work from our syllabus
two critical articles or book chapters
a visual or image-based source
a source of any kind that dates from 1914-1918 (letters or journals, news accounts, propaganda, advertisements, opinion columns are some options to consider).
• make an argument/central assertion that derives from a close, informed reading of all four sources, including textual support and quotations.
• run 9-11 full typed, paginated, and doubled-spaced pages in a font of reasonable size with margins no greater than 1 inch on all sides.
• follow Chicago or MLA citation style, including a separate Works Cited page.
• be accompanied in its final form by copies of all non-syllabus sources used in the essay.
