This project has two phases. In the first step, we will ask you to sign up for one of the following themes/memory groups for a team discussion of relevant readings and collaboration. In the second step, each student will be expected to produce a 5-6 page research paper (double-spaced 12 font- excluding bibliography- not shorter not longer) related to the discussion theme of their memory groups. The individual papers are expected to draw on the group discussions but focus on a specific case study based on library research.

Please sign up below for the topic you would like to work on. Although I would like everyone to work on issues related to their interests, it would be great to have a balanced distribution on these topics.
