I would like my essay to be about how the global population is effecting climate change.
Write a 1,250 to 1,500-word essay on one of the international issues we have covered this semester (terrorism, Islamic State, veil controversy, refugee crisis, global population challenges, or climate change). The issue essay should address a particular issue based on the following criteria:
Identifies and describes the issue from the perspectives of groups concerned about or involved with the issue.
Articulates the social and cultural influences that influence or shape the different groups’ perspective of the issue.
Evaluates the perspectives of the different groups concerned about the issue or conflict using disciplinary perspectives (e.g., historical, geographical, economic, political, and anthropological).
You should cite at least five different sources:
Textbook (Anderson, Sheldon, Mark Allen Peterson, and Stanley W. Toops. 2018. International Studies: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Global Issues. 4 ed. Boulder, CO: Greenwood Press.)
one popular article (see the Classroom Reading List from World 101 that we used for the article analysis worksheets for possibilities. You may use the article(s) you did for your article analysis worksheet assignment(s), if it is relevant. The IUS library has access to most of the popular periodicals and paper’s of record in the US (e.g., NY Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs), which you have access to free because you are a student)
two peer-reviewed academic journal articles (search the library’s electronic databases
or pursue the International Studies library guide
to help find articles.
one non-fiction book (see the Classroom Reading List from World 101 for possible books but you can also search the library’s catalog, IUCAT
, for electronic and physical books)
The IUS librarians are uber helpful! Feel free to ask them a question about how to find something
