Global culture wars
Please identify a ‘culture war’ issue happening now, somewhere in the world. You may select an issue related to immigration, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, race, religion, national identity, or something else. If you are unsure of what to pick, please be in touch with your TA, who can help you think about a topic.
Write an essay making an argument about the historical development of this culture war. When did it first become controversial? How was it resolved? What remains unresolved about it? The argument in this paper should NOT be your position on the particular culture war, but rather an argument about how the culture war began, how it plays out, what it represents, and why it is important.
Please make sure to cite at least one secondary source (can be any of the texts from the course or another academic book/journal article about your specific topic) and one primary source (something from the time period you are discussing, e.g. an article from a historical newspaper). You may also refer to personal experience, but remember that the primary argument of the paper should be about the historical development, not your personal take. Please be in touch with your TAs about identifying appropriate sources.
Limit to 3-4 pages, double-spaced, 12 point font, Times New Roman, one-inch margins all around, as a .doc, .docx, or Google doc, not as a PDF.
Your paper should be organized by making an argument or claim and supporting it with evidence. Make sure that the argument you are making is clear and in the first paragraph(s) of the essay.
Cite quotes and references by following it up with page numbers inside parentheses. Example: (7-8). Make sure to fully incorporate quotes into your writing–do not just present a quote with no introduction or explanation
