Geopolitical Overview (10%) By noon on Wednesday 9/19, each student will turn in their own independently written 3-page overview (via Turn-it-in) that summarizes the historical and geographical background of their issue. In addition to the three pages of text, you must include a map and a list of 4-5 scholarly resources (academic journals or books, not newspapers or magazines) that you have used (or plan to use) for your paper. If you have any confusion about what a “scholarly” source includes or excludes, be sure to contact me or read more here http://pegasus.cc.ucf.edu/~janzb/courses/scholarly1.htm. This overview and your final paper must be fully and properly referenced. See the WVU library for more information about citation-styles https://lib.wvu.edu/instruction/guides/citation/. The citation-style you use does not matter just be consistent in how you cite and reference your sources. Your papers must be doublespaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, with 1 inch margins all around. On this same day, we will discuss each of these six topics, so please be prepared to speak briefly on your topic. I will give you feedback on this paper that you MUST incorporate into your final term paper.
Final Term Paper (25% for the paper & 5% presentation) Your final term paper must include an introduction that highlights the geographical concepts you are using in your paper. Some of the major Political Geography concepts that we will examine throughout the semester include: the state, nation, spatial identity, globalization, imperialism, orientalism, post colonialism, resistance, development, territory, sovereignty, borders, conflict, natural resources, human rights, security and migration. Building from the overview paper you wrote earlier in the semester, use between 3-5 of concepts to help explain your geopolitical issue. Provide some historical and geographical context about the issue, but focus on how your chosen concepts help us to understand your issue. Make sure to include a conclusion that summarizes the connection between your specific geopolitical conflict and the relevant geographical concepts. You are required to cite at least five “scholarly” sources (see above for links to more info on scholarly sources and properly citing work). Many of the articles you will read in class will help with your term papers and I strongly encourage you to use them in your term paper. Your papers will be double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, with 1 inch margins all around and be 10 pages in length, not including “works cited” or any images, graphics or maps.
I already have my overview paper with my instructor feedback I’ll download it. (I’m International student and she is shocked about my paper so please write the paper as someone in elementary school). After that we will do a group presentation it and I want you to do a google document for me for talking only 5 min
