Critical Analysis: You will have to write a 400 to 500-word critical analysis based on specific primary/secondary materials or video(s). This analysis is intended to get you thinking about international relations, on foreign policies of states, on public perception of history, and on various historiographical issues. It provides a venue for in-depth deliberation of important issues and controversies in the international relations of the first half of the 20th century. Step 1: Selecting your Option. For the Critical Analysis, you will have lots of options. Review the various options that are provided on the list. Each option contains one or more alternatives which constitute a video (newsreel, documentary, movie, etc.) and/or a text document (report, article, etc.). Review all of the various options to make an informed decision. Choose an option that peaks your interest. Watch the assigned video or read the document. Step 2: Writing your critical analysis. Write a brief 400 to 500-word analysis on the assigned material. Follow the suggested questions in writing your narrative. You are not required to conduct any additional research on the topic. The main objective is to consider the big questions and major themes pertaining to historical events. Use the questions listed under each option for guidance.
