- It is the responsibility of every student to confirm that they are registered for this class, that they have read and understand the syllabus, and they are aware of and will abide all class policies and procedures. It is assumed that all students still on the class roll after the drop deadline attended at least one class prior to the the first exam.
- Research Paper Assignments (updated 7/14). Quality is more important than quantity. I envision papers in the range of 10-15 pages. However, it is feasible that an 8 page paper could be excellent and a 20 page paper could be terrible. You should consult several academic sources. No particular citation style is necessary. But I do want a Bibliography with full citations. And if you are directly quoting or relying on a particular source, you should footnote that. Emphasize analysis. You want to understand the events in terms of who, what, when, and where. But you should also address the why. If you have a comparative topic, you should not think that you are doubling your research. Just do not go into as much depth on each country--and focus on the differences and why those differences occur.
