GOVT 322: The term paper is worth 20% of your course grade. For your paper, pick two authors we have studied or otherwise discussed in class. We then ask you to analyze their arguments and contemplate applying their theories within the international arena. As an example, you could pick Huntington and his article on The Clash of Civilizations. Your analysis of the Huntington article should, at a minimum, include: (1) The author’s thesis. In other words, what is the author’s position or purpose for his article? What does the author believe is or will be the case now or in the future? (2) How does the author make his case? What examples does he or she use to support his or her thesis? (3) Do you agree or disagree with the case the author is making and the examples he or she uses to support his or her thesis? (4) Give an example or examples of things that have occurred since the author published his paper that tend to prove out or disprove the thesis. In addition to picking one of the authors we study in the book, you can pick an author we have discussed. Machiavelli is one of those authors. He wrote “The Prince.” We alluded to some of his philosophy in class with clips from the movie “A Bronx Tale.” “The Prince” is really a short read, just like GMU political science students like. Again, if you pick this author, what is his (1) Thesis (2) How does he make his case? (3) Do you agree or disagree with him. (4) Give examples of leaders who seem to have followed his advice. Napoleon would certainly be one of them. Are there others? You have the freedom to choose your authors. You can choose Huntington or Machiavelli if you like. However, you cannot choose both. If you choose Huntington, then you cannot choose Machiavelli as your second author and vice-versa. You have to choose another author in that case, or you can choose any other authors in the book, if you like and not do either Huntington or Machiavelli. The paper should be double-spaced and be from 6-8 pages in length. I am looking for some critical thinking here, that is, if you are looking for the full 20 points. The Term Paper is due 11 April 2023, at 7:20 pm to Dr. Dinella’s email, [email protected] AND [email protected] . OUTLINE SUBMISSIONS DUE: Tuesday, 28 February 2023, at 7:20 pm SUBMIT TO: [email protected] As noted in the Syllabus, outlines for the Term Paper are due to Sammy’s email Tuesday, 28 February 2023, at 7:20 pm. The primary purpose of this outline is to get you thinking about your term paper and give you feedback on your argument. Between 28 February-11 April, you have plenty of time to develop your thoughts and strengthen your argument. We have plenty of authors to discuss in this course, and you are not limited only to the authors we have covered thus far. To give you some guidance, the outline can be completed in roughly 1-2 paragraphs comprised of the following components: 1. A solid thesis that provides direction for your paper. 2. Two identified authors and a summary of their thesis in your own words. 3. A brief account of the evidence used to support the authors’ thesis. 4. Real-world examples that support/disprove the authors’ thesis. 5. A short statement about how these authors’ theses relate to each other. We want to see you succeed on the Term Paper and in our class! Take the time to prepare for your submission. If you have any questions regarding the topic, instructions, or expectations, please reach out to Dr. Dinella or Sammy. Beyond our guidance, the GMU Writing Center is also available to offer support.
