Goal: Identify a problem to research that could use an interdisciplinary lens, identify other perspectives and points of view and gain in-depth knowledge of the problem you’ve chosen to research. Get feedback and use it to improve your writing. Disciplines: Varied Product: a 5-7 page essay that makes a clear argument for why your problem matters, why we should use an interdisciplinary lens to explore it, and how it impacts American society. You must address at least three disciplines. Sources: a) a minimum of three substantive sources: either long form journalism from a well-known and reputable source, or peer reviewed articles from scholarly journals or books b) You will need a total of three texts, two of which must be a minimum of 10 pages long c) At least one of your three texts must provide a counter-argument or a very different perspective from your original ideas. The purpose of this assignment is similar to that of the Group Project – for you to move beyond the opinions of others and to add your voice to the ongoing conversation about your topic. The purpose is also to have you synthesize multiple disciplines’ research/ideas about a problem and reflect on how that interdisciplinary lens affects how we see that problem. For this project, you will choose a problem to explore and investigate. You need to: Define the problem Present a clear rationale for taking an interdisciplinary approach including the advantages to be gained Identify relevant disciplines and conduct research (Annotated Bibliography) Identify key underlying assumptions and methods of evaluation Identify conflicts between and/or areas of complementary between the insights offered from each discipline Create common ground that incorporates insights from each discipline Combine disciplinary insights to construct new more integrated understanding of the problem Note: This is not a problem-solution paper! Instead, you are researching your problem, how various disciplines explain/address the problem, and making an argument for why we should care and your new insights into the problem by synthesizing information from multiple disciplines. Similar to the group project, your essay should include at least three substantive sources: either long form journalism from a well-known and reputable source, or peer reviewed articles from scholarly journals or books. For this 5-7 page essay, you will build upon your research to write an in-depth, thoughtful and substantive analysis of what you’ve uncovered about your problem, and present a convincing and persuasive argument about your topic. Your essay should incorporate your sources into your argument rather than be driven by them, i.e., your essay should present your conclusions about your topic based on the research you’ve done. Include your personal experience in your essay, if it’s appropriate to your topic. Like all your work for this class, this paper should be in MLA format, including a Works Cited page. Here is an annotated bibliography with citations that must be included.
