I'm trying to write an essay for a class but can't think of any interesting topics/events. I have just had 10 hours of lecture and my mind is dead.
The assignment is as follows:
A piece of writing that makes a claim and that incorporates multiple outside texts (14-15 pages). In this instance, you will choose any event in history, find worthwhile sources that show disagreement on this event, and in a 14-15 page paper, assess and compare the two sources. You are looking at one historical event from multiple perspectives and engaging these voices in an argumentative conversation
My ideas so far have been the Falklands war, DRM, the smoking ban and the American Revolution. These are ok but I wanted something a little bit different. Any ideas?
PS. Google wave invites for all who help :)
