You may upload each part once it is complete.
Prompt: Geography is the study of global relationships involving everything from how and where people work to how they alter ecosystems and climates. Geographers seek “to understand where things are, why they are there, and why they are connected” (Marston et al, 2017, 4). Understanding the world, why places are similar and also different, means gaining an appreciation of the connections between them. Processes of globalization as you saw in your first assignment are not all one way. Regions influence and transform each other. World regions, then, can be best thought of as an aggregation of places and the connections that develop between those places over time. Regions are dynamic, not completely fixed in place, they change and have fluid boundaries. The processes through which regions change are also not simply internal, regions change through their relationships to other regions.
Your task in this assignment is complete all three parts, ending in a research paper (8-10 pages double spaced) about a process that is linking and transforming two world regions. In doing so you will develop key geographic perspectives and independent research skills that will help you offer a critical perspective on the processes that shape our world.
The Final Paper assignment consists of three parts:
Part 1: Topic proposal (5 points)
Part 2: Final paper outline and annotated bibliography (15 points)
Part 3: Final paper (80 points)
Your final paper will be graded according to the attached rubric.
