Political Paper- Turabian

profilet9812092

The ‘short paper on political violence’ will be a FORMAL 2-3 page description and ANALYSIS of a political violence event as explained below. Include all necessary references, properly formatted. You should include a SHORT description of the event but I’m most interested in your analysis. You MUST use concepts you’ve learned in the course so far, and especially from the WEEKS 3-4 module on Political Violence.

The assignment is designed for you to show me that you understand the descriptive and analytical concepts regarding political violence and can apply them effectively to a specific case.

Again: one page is TOP MARGIN to BOTTOM MARGIN. Please use 1 inch margins all around and a standard font in 10 or 12 point (Calibri, Arial, or Times New Roman, please). A title page is required so you do not need to put information (other than page numbers) in headers! Include a formal references (footnotes or endnotes and bibliography, OR author/date [parenthetical] and 'works cited' page). Refer to Turabian chapters 15-19 and the appendix for proper formatting.

THE ASSIGNMENT:

Watch the National Geographic mini-documentary video “See the Sparks That Set Off Violence in Charlottesville” https://www.youtube.com/embed/FDIfPhx-Fm0

PLEASE NOTE THAT CLOSED-CAPTIONING FOR THIS VIDEO IS AVAILABLE. WHEN YOU ACCESS THE VIDEO, THE CC BUTTON IS AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT AND PROVIDES CLOSED CAPTIONED SUB-TITLES. THIS OPTION IS AVAILABLE FOR ALL YOUTUBE VIDEOS FOR THIS COURSE.

Warning : This video contains profanity and disturbing scenes from the Charlottesville, Va. demonstration on August 12, 2017. It also includes footage of James Fields, Jr., who has been charged with second-degree murder in an attack that day.

This video is about 20 minutes long and does contain some disturbing imagery as well as a lot of profanity-laden speech. If this is unacceptable for you personally, I’ll find some alternative. PLEASE let me know as soon as possible.

After viewing the video, please write a 2-3 page paper summarizing the content and context of the event that is the subject of this video and ANALYZE the content in regard to political violence. The analysis must include concepts that you have learned through the audio lectures and supplementary readings assigned. WHY is this political violence? WHY is this behavior taking place? Remember, you are trying to EXPLAIN this political behavior we have defined as political violence. AGAIN, I'm most interested in your analysis and your ability to understand context and the application of analytical tools that you have at your disposal.

The video is produced by National Geographic magazine which shouldn't have much inherent bias.

This is NOT FOR A PERSONAL OPINION OR JUDGMENT. IT IS TO HELP YOU TO PRACTICE ANALYSIS USING TECHNIQUES AND CONCEPTS YOU HAVE AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS COURSE.

APPROPRIATE USE OF REFERENCES IS REQUIRED. IF YOU REFER TO A SPECIFIC PART OF THE VIDEO, IT MUST BE REFERENCED PROPERLY (refer to the Turabian manual of style for any formatting questions please)
