Whoever wants to take this order on will be a life saver.
Here are the instructions:
1. 300-400 words = 1-1.5 pages (include a word count at the end of your essay)
2. Content must be representative of the reading. You must cite from the book (Hint: if you cite from other source materials this will ONLY help you. State sources at the end of your essay)
3. Make sure you discuss the issue at hand, make sure they directly relate to the issue
4. Proper citation formatting: Chicago Manual of Style
Addition: I believe outside sources can be used, but please, use the textbook more.
Here is the question:
The concept of modern politics seems to have emerged with the French Revolution. How did the French Revolution lead to the development of a conservative political ideology? How did Liberalism represent an ideology of the industrial age? Why did liberalism support laissez-faire capitalism?
The bibliography for the textbook that I have attached is below:
Backman, Clifford R. Cultures of the West: A History. New York: Oxford University Press, 2020
Please write a one-page think piece in which you engage with the week’s readings.

For this assignment, you need to write about the following authors and put their ideas in conversation with one-another: Gitelman, and Hull.

This assignment is an opportunity for you to choose one of the readings that we have completed to date and engage more fully with the argument.
You should make an original point, substantiate it with source material and citations (Chicago Manual of Style), and demonstrate that you understand the author’s argument and, with some creativity and mental muscle, can add something substantive to it.
For example: You may agree or disagree with a point the author makes and offer your reasons for it. You may propose a new perspective that the author did not consider but which augments or clarifies their argument. You may evaluate a piece for its strengths and weaknesses alike while intertwining your own commentary and vision.
This essay should be a minimum of 1500 words and
**Schilbrack, "Religions: Are There Any?"
**Smith, "Religion, Religions, Religious"

Critical Race Theory (CRT) Assignment (25%)
TW: Please note that the news stories assigned for this assignment include details of the murders of women and children.
Jacob Forman and Mohammed Shafia both murdered their families. The media coverage of the murders is the subject matter of this assignment, which has two parts. First, students will explain what Critical Race Theory (“CRT”) is. What are CRT’s most important insights and principles? What purposes does CRT serve? Clearly, there is no expectation that students will (or can) discuss every CRT principle in their assignments. Focus on those principles that are most relevant to the assignment at hand and make sure that you explain the principles that you raise. Do not simply list them.
Second, having provided a synopsis of CRT, students will assess the stories of the Forman and Shafia murders using a CRT lens. Are there similarities between the two stories? Are they depicted similarly in media accounts? Are they treated similarly in the legal realm? What does a CRT lens have to show us?
Length: 1250-1500 words excluding notes, bibliography and title page.
Formatting: Students should double space their papers using a 12-point font and standard (1 inch) margins. Students must use the Chicago style for their citations and bibliography. Failure to correctly use the Chicago style will result in a deduction.
If you would prefer to purchase a manual on the Chicago style, I recommend Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers. The Turabian handbook is available for purchase on Amazon.ca. There is no need to use the most recent edition of the Turabian handbook.
Sources: Students are not expected to do outside research, but are welcome to include other sources should they so choose.
