During the course of the year, you will complete three case studies. These are a chance for you to go beyond the assigned readings and class discussions and conduct some research on a specific topic that you are interested in. Please keep your topic focused. Choose a specific: person; place; thing (e.g. a technology); event; social movement; etc.
Think about what your goals are. You might choose to highlight technological, social, economic, political, or other aspects. You might try to explain, persuade, or have other goals. If you’re explaining something, please consider: why should the reader care? If you’re making a case for something, please support your argument with good information.
