Essay with insights from the course to contemporary, real-world issues.
In the essay, you are required to apply insights from the course to contemporary, real-world issues. These essays must be between 1750-2000 words in length. Identify one item in the news from 2020 and explain how it is connected to one of the themes that have been discussed in class so far. You can either show how a certain news time/event/topic illustrates one of the themes discussed in class, or how it provides a counterpoint to an argument found in the course material. For example, you are able to write about a specific nation’s approach to cyberwar/espionage and compare/contrast it with that of other countries discussed in the class.
