When faced with this project and the task of developing something to write about, I immediately felt like I was drowning. There are so many potential project ideas for me, but when I think about them, I’m only thinking surface level. I need some help fleshing out what I could do. I have many topics to think about, but I don’t know what angles to take with them. And for some basic background on me, I’m a history and political science major. In addition to classes I’m also an RA, a writer for the yearbook, a representative for CSG, and a comic book fan. So without further ado, I present my random thoughts:
-One idea I had was to write about the decline of bipartisanship in government in the last century. I think I could explore the carnal desire for power as well.
-Another idea was to look at the creation of memory throughout the world in the wake of World War II. I explored it in a few classes, but I don’t think I paid it the attention it deserves.
-I would love to write about comic books. If anyone has suggestions on how I could accomplish that, I’m all ears.
-I’ve taken a few classes on the role of social identities and how they have been seen throughout history/how they should be treated in modern society. Might be interesting to explore.
I’m legitimately open to suggestions and feedback of all kind. Be brutal.
