Research Proposal. The theme is about disasters. Use the attached doc with the comments and use them to develop a better research question and to follow the instructions below. There is a doc with subtitles from videos of what is expected. If you have any questions, message me immediately.
This is a detailed narrative description of your project.
In a narrative form (i.e., full sentences in coherent paragraphs) your proposal should address the following:
your research question: what is the problem or puzzle youre trying to solve?
your proposed method for answering it (e.g. what kinds of primary sources youre using and how youre approaching reading them, any relevant theoretical models, etc.)
the relationship of your argument to the existing historiography (e.g., is there an unanswered question in the literature your research addresses?
are you building on a particular scholars approach?)
the broader significance of your argument and project ( i.e., an answer to the so what? question, why people should care about your research).
This should also present your thesis–i.e., the answer youve developed to your research question.
a description of the organization of your paper (e.g., main sections you would organize your paper into; principles of organization (e.g., chronologically, thematically, etc.)
You should approach this assignment as an opportunity to think through the project, but also to describe its importance to a broader audience. A scholarly grant proposal is a good model to follow.
Format: 5-6 pages, double-spaced. Use footnotes and Chicago citation (note-footnote) format. No works cited page.
