•Your paper should be double-spaced, with 1-inch margins and 12-point font.
• You may use either parenthetical citations, putting the page number in parentheses, or you
may use footnotes. Whenever you use a quotation, be sure to provide a citation.
•Your essay should be analytical. The function here is not to re-tell what happened in the
past, but rather to use evidence from the past – in this case, primary sources from around
the world – to make an original argument based on your interpretation, comparison, and
contrasting of those sources.
• Your essay should be comparative. Instead of doing a deep dive into 1 or 2 primary
sources from the above readings, you should provide a broad analysis that bridges multiple
sources and regions.
• Your essay should be clear. Be sure to proofread so as to ensure you are saying exactly
what you mean with the greatest clarity and organization possible.
