What is going on in history at the time the primary source was created?

Primary sources are extremely important, not only in history, but in many other fields. It offers a window into the past, an inside view into a certain time period. It will require you to be more critical and analytical and give you a deeper understanding of what that document meant during that time period. There are times that a source can have a hidden meaning and you will have to read between the lines. Primary sources can come in different forms. They can be photographs, memoirs, paintings, letters, newspaper articles, films, government documents, etc.
I do not want just a summary or an overview of the primary source but also an analysis. For ex., if you read a slave narrative like the Diary of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs, you can bring in information that not only supports Jacobs’s narrative but also expounds on it. While you are reading and analyzing your source, you will be thinking about the time period and the historical significance of your primary source. Think about the author’s biases and assumptions. You can bring in secondary sources and other information to round out your work.

How accurate is the nazi racial logic depicted in spiegelman’s work?

Short research paper: The MLA-formatted 5-7 page research paper that includes a clearly defined position, argument, and evidence (from primary and secondary sources). Topic: The Maus I&II by Spiegelman begins with Hitler’s quote: “The Jews are undoubtedly a race, but they are not human.” In light of the author’s choice to represent book characters through the animal imagery examine Nazi Germany’s biological racialism, racism, and ideology by reviewing the peer-reviewed research of primary and secondary sources. Why were certain populations depicted as mice, pigs, cats, dogs, … etc.? How accurate is the Nazi racial logic depicted in Spiegelman’s work? Do you see the connection to the greater transnational ideas, ideologies, and trends (e.g. social- Darwinism, fascism, degeneration, and eugenics). This is not an opinion paper but a well-researched attempt using a multitude of peer-reviewed sources to answer these questions or position your valid argument within this framework.
This is not a book report. You cannot write this research by summarizing only one source, namely, Maus. You need to come up with a research question or hypothesis based on the theme of the book assigned, research other authored sources, and possibly answer your research question. For instance, research the following question: “Why did the Nazis target Jews of the allied countries of Hungary and Slovakia during 1944?” or “How deep-seated was the idea of anti-Semitism in German society during the years of 1933-1945?”
In order to conduct a well-researched project, you must research these themes apart from the assigned book and incorporate these findings in a greater attempt of answering your own research question. See the syllabus for details.

Whatever you choose to research, make sure your final report includes:

Whatever you choose to research, make sure your final report includes:
1: a clear topic (that is not US history) and its importance to the 20th C. if it is your family story – then you state the context in which this story unfolds: is it a story of migration? Is it a story of wartime or economic relocation? Is it a story of survival? Is it a bit of all of that? If you are writing about technological innovation or development, legal changes, political issues and pacts, whatever your topic, place into the context of the 20th century – review the historical context based on research you have done using material provided by the class or online material (vetted by a librarian or your TA).
1.a) make a timeline – this is a very helpful way to check that you are following a chronological structure
1.b) use the timeline to develop the narrative of your essay
2: define your research and support it with evidence:
if you are writing about your family, make sure this is not just a collection of memories or conversations. Place them in context. If your aunt tells you about her experience emigrating from Cambodia in the 1970’s – do research about why people were leaving Cambodia, how were they leaving (by plane? by boat? by foot?), explain the political context, research how the international community responded and what responsibility foreign actors may have had. If you have your grandfather’s diary – see if you can corroborate anything written in there – historical almanacs can tell you what the weather was on any given day in most parts of the world, newspaper can contradict personal points of view – use the sources at your disposal to place your family history in a wider context.
if you are researching a particular topic/person in the 20th Century: frame your research question – what are you writing about and why, what sources will you use, what evidence will you be relying on? Who has already written about this? How does the history of the topic impact its present- if applicable? How does understanding the issue historically impact your understanding of it.
if you are writing about the graphic novel, do not write a book report! Focus on a specific aspect of its context – use the graphic novel to spotlight a specific historical issue. Footnotes in Gaza focuses on one very specific event in the long history of Arab-Israeli conflict in the wider context of the Suez crisis, which itself was a response by European countries to the Egyptian nationalization of the Suez Canal. The French and the British especially wanted to pressure Egypt and weaken its leader to guarantee their access to the canal – in this context, the young Israeli army was first to invade Egypt, not in an attempt to gain access to the Suez canal – but in order to weaken a strengthening pan-Arab opposition to Israel. The events happen in the context of the Cold War, but the graphic novel approaches issues of perspective, the role of journalists in messy political events, and as always the price that bystanders to the conflict pay. Remember – there are many stories – do not become blinded by a single story.
Basic requirements of final report (if written):
at least 1000 words (or equivalent)
title, introductory sentence that tells the reader what to expect, as many paragraphs as needed to complete research, concluding paragraph
in-text citations & bibliography
no spelling mistakes (do a spell-check)
cannot be a US history paper
Basic requirements of final report if podcast/film/graphic novel/ anything else (get approval from us first!)
must be equivalent to 1000 words – so if it is a film, it should convey the effort you would have put in researching a paper of 1000 words.
you need to fulfill the promise of the final report: the document must have a clearly explained historical context, must explore a family history or a historical topic in depth, it will have a title and it will conclude.
whatever the form, you need to find a way to cite your sources and use many sources! See the sources you annotated in the bibliography – these are the minimum sources you should use, but find more and cite them all.
edit carefully so as not to leave mistakes/repetitions/unclear sections
reference/connection to supporting evidence
primary & secondary sources ONLY – not tertiary sources or unreliable ones like for ex biography.com Links to an external site., history.com
