Argument-based research paper that contextualizes and analyzes one
Write an 6-8-page, argument-based research paper that contextualizes and analyzes one primary source dealing with a technology/ technologies related to global health or its previous iterations. At its core, your final paper should make an argument about what your chosen primary source reveals about the history of global health or technologies in global health. To do this, you need to place the source in its historical context, considering questions such as: Who authored or produced the source? Where and when did they produce it? How did they produce it? For whom did they produce it (audience)? Why did they produce it? You should also analyze the source to illustrate how and why it reveals what you argue it reveals. How might the language, images, content, structure, or genre of the source reflect the particular historical circumstances in which it was produced? What does the existence of this source tell us about history? You are required to consult and cite at least three peer-reviewed scholarly sources (not including course materials) for the paper. You may cite as few or as many course readings or lectures as you like. If you choose to analyze a source that is not only the pre-selected list, please get approval by the instructor first.
