spaced 12 pt times new roman H u m a n i t i e s
I’m working on a history question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
The research paper is a 10 page (double-spaced 12 pt Times New Roman, excluding reference list/bibliography).
For your research paper you will examine the way in which a particular human rights story, person or event is or is not represented through a monument in the city of Winnipeg.
You have two choices:
Choose a monument in the city of Winnipeg and analyze how it represents a human rights story
Make a case for the most important human rights monument that Winnipeg is missing (who or what is not represented and should be?)
This is an argument-centered paper – you must present an argument about the representation you are analyzing or proposing (for example its contribution to human rights history, its accuracy or omissions in representation, etc.)
Introduction: What is the area you will address? What is your argument?
Background: What is the topic, event, issue or individual? How is this an important human rights story?
o Be sure to use academic literature to support and inform your background section
Monument Description: How is this issue represented through a monument? (or What is currently missing? How you propose this issue, topic, event or individual be represented?
Tips on describing monuments:
o Where is it, What is it, When it was made, is there any text?
o What does the location, form, size, etc. of the monument suggest about the importance or prominence of this person/issue? If there is more than one person, is there anything suggesting power relationships between them?
o What is the context of this monument?
o Who do you think the audience is meant to be?
How does this monument / proposed monument represent human rights history in Canada? Key questions:o What is the historical event / who is the historical character? (draw on academic literature)o How does this person/these events relate to human rights in Canada?o What rights are represented directly or indirectly by this monument?o Whose story is this monument telling?o Whose story is it not telling?
Proposed Changes / Contextualisation:
Text for Plaque: Write a 200 words text in your own words for a plaque to accompany this monument. Your text should reflect your argument. If you are analyzing an existing monument, your monument may or may already have a plaque (in reality), this is your opportunity to present different information.
Conclusion: What is the key message of your paper? Are there any next steps you would recommend? (for existing monuments) Are there any barriers to your proposal (for the proposed monument
