Local Cultural Geography Paper
Write a “research” paper dealing with some topical (current) aspect of the cultural geography of Minnesota or the British Isles not covered in class (i.e. not Mall of America or Belfast murals). You will need to consult relevant sources including local newspapers, magazines, websites and connect the infomation found in those sources to theoretical approaches discussed in class and/or in the readings. You might write about an issue or topic concerning landscape, popular culture, class, gender, sexuality, homeplace, globalization, but you must write about it/them in the context of a specific local place. You may address topics with a broad regional scope but be sure through your analysis to justify how and why your topic is a state-wide one (perhaps related to regional/state tourism or cultural initiatives carried out at the state or local level by government). Don’t succumb to overgeneralization.
Your paper must contain at least 5 sources, at least 3 of which should be scholarly articles or books in cultural geography.
Paper should be at least 3 pages in length (but absolutely no more than 5), excluding p hotographs, maps, diagrams, field-sketches, tables, graphs and satellite images (which should include captions). Use a double-spaced, 12-point type in a Times New Roman, Garamond, Book Antiqua, or Calibri font and reset the page to 1-inch margins, and 1 inch at the top and bottom. Paper need a title, citations and a list of references used throughout the paper
