You will choose a topic. Your topic should be something that is interesting to you. It should be able to make a connection to the course theme (The Power of Storytelling: Narratives of Past, Present, and Future). You should think about the keywords of the theme – stories. You should think about important “stories” of society that can be studied. Perhaps you want to focus on a story of the past (i.e. women’s rights) Or you can focus on a story of the present (i.e. the war between Russia and Ukraine). Or you can focus on the idea of the future (i.e. technology/AI ethical implications). However, whatever you pick, your topic should still be something relevant today.
you can get a sense of some of the most pressing issues that are still impacting the world today.
