American Indians Studies / Due Date May 8th Thu
AmIn 210 XW - Research Project (6-8 pages)
An introductory course like this is designed to give students a broad overview of the many topics involved in the field of American Indian studies. By the end of the semester, you’ve most likely begun to wonder more deeply about some of the topics and issues we’ve talked about this semester. This project is your chance to explore and research one of those topics more in depth. Find something that speaks strongly to you, read up on it, and let us know what you find. You are encouraged to run potential topics by me before you begin your research so that we can make sure you’re headed in the right direction.
Your essay should give a critical overview of the topic along with your reflections and analysis of it. How does it connect to what we’ve covered throughout the semester? Does it relate to any of the course’s core concepts?
You are strongly encouraged, but not required, to consult with me on your topic. Before you talk with me, brainstorm a few ideas then do a little preliminary research to see what resources might be available on those topics. Remember to use our Library database as one of your main resources! Once you have a sense for the lay of the land, either email me or make a time to come see me during office hours (MWF, 10-11am, 12-1pm, 2-3pm and by appointment)
