Assignment Instructions

Step 1: Select a chapter from our text, An Introduction to Global Studies, that interests you the most. List the full title.

Step 2: After reading the chapter, select one specific topic discussed within it that you think you would be interested in researching and learning more about for the rest of the session. List it here. (Note, this topic should be much more specific than the general chapter title).

Step 3: Describe your topic and then discuss how it fits into the larger focus of the chapter (e.g., My specific topic, desertification, is a problem that occurs when ______. It relates to the larger focus of chapter 5, the natural environment, because desertification is _____. ). Devote a full paragraph to this section.

Step 4: Describe one thing that you learned about your specific topic from reading our text and one thing about the topic that you would like to learn more about.

Topics for this course must meet the following requirements:

  1. They must be mentioned in our text.
  2. They must be global in impact/scope.
  3. They must be addressable within an IR/global studies framework.
  4. They must be researchable. That is, you must be able to find scholarly articles and books in our online library about the topic.
  5. They must lend themselves to the formulation of a research question about which reasonable people disagree. In other words, you must be able to develop a research question that does not have a yes/no or fact based answer. So a question like "Is desertification occurring?" would not be an appropriate question since the facts show that the answer is yes. There can be no reasonable disagreement about the fact that is is happening. One might disagree, however, about the best or most reasonable ways to combat this issue. And that is what wer'e looking for, a question that smart people will answer in different ways.

Step 5: Using your book, authoritative websites, and/or resources in our online library, explain how your topic fulfills the 5 topic selection requirements above. Make sure to use and cite outside sources to support your claims (You should use at least 3-5 resources, including our book).

Additional Guidelines:
Compose your assignment in a Word doc. Do not copy and paste into the assignment text box.

Please use the following naming convention for your documents: LastnameFirstname_assignmentname.doc orLastnameFirstname_assignmentname.docx

When quoting or paraphrasing from our text, make sure to cite it using the Turabian reference list style (a parenthetical citation [P], followed by a reference list entry [R] at the end of the document). Remember that both quotations and paraphrases must be cited both in-text using parenthetical citations and in a reference list at the end of the document. Simply listing references at the end of your post is not enough. Each reference should match-up to at least one in-text citation and vice-versa.

Chapter 1: Going Global (Topic: Deterritorialization)

Student’s Name
Instructor’s Name



Chapter 1, Going Global is the chapter that I choose and is the chapter that interests me
the most as compared to other chapters in our text, An Introduction to Global Studies. From
Chapter 1, Going Global, the topic that interests me the most and would be interested in
researching and learning more about for the rest of the session is deterritorialization. My specific
topic, deterritorialization, according to Campbell (2010), is the process via which the traditional
boundaries are being transcended by networks of connections and have made the constraint of
geographical boundaries to be seen as ‘non-issue’ anymore and people mingle socially,
economically, and even politically all over the world. The main thing leading to the same being
technology. This topic relates to ...
