This introduction covers a lot of ground and allows us a window into one man’s perception of the world in a particular period of time.

General Information: Your paper should be 2-3 pages (500-750 words) long, double spaced in a reasonable font. You should adhere to standard norms of grammar and style. Be sure to use footnotes or endnotes to cite your sources. Your paper should have a clear thesis that answers the question asked. You should use evidence from the texts that you read for the last two weeks to support your thesis. Where possible primary sources are preferable!
Remember that the goal of this paper is to practice supporting your answer to the question asked with the sources that we have read in this class.
Background: The last two weeks have been focused on Ibn Khaldun whose life spans the regions of North Africa and the Mamluk Sultanate in Egypt and who has family ties to Islamic Spain. You have also read secondary sources related to both the Mamluks and to North Africa and Spain.
Ibn Khaldun is perhaps the most famous historian to write in Arabic. He is often called the first sociologist. Ibn Khaldun gives us his view of human society writ large in the Muqqadimah or introduction to his magisterial history of North Africa. This Introduction covers a lot of ground and allows us a window into one man’s perception of the world in a particular period of time. So, examine this important work and the secondary sources for both the Mamluks and North Africa/Spain and answer the following question:
***The Question: Are Ibn Khaldun’s views, as presented in the Muqaddimah unique to him or are they representative of his environment? In other words, is Ibn Khaldun a man of his time or does he break ground that his contemporaries do not? ***
Be sure to discuss Ibn Khaldun, and at least one of the secondary sources (but preferably more!).
Pick one or two issues that seem important to you to focus on, rather than trying to take in the whole scope of the Muqqadimah and the secondary sources.
Keep in mind that environment here can mean cultural, political, intellectual, religious, etc., as well as the physical environment.
Remember that you can revise the paper after Peer Review, so if it isn’t perfect, you can fix it in the revised version.

Do not quote and cite the textbook, or information you noted in lecture.

TOPIC: Discuss the impact slavery had on early American history. Among other things, consider its origins, how it affected various regions, as well its personal, political, economic, and social implications. Please note, you may have to read ahead a bit to obtain information we’ve yet to discuss. In your paper, include relevant primary source quotes and their corresponding citations from at least four different readings in The American Yawp Reader (before 1877).
When writing, you must support your own ideas by citing short passages from the primary documents in The American Yawp reader (before 1877). Please note, however, these citations should be short (ranging from just part of a sentence to a full sentence or two at the very most). Be sure to include the cited text inside quotation marks (showing the reader you are not using your own words), and then place the author’s name (if known) and the name of the particular document in parentheses. For example, if you were discussing the Native American’s reaction to their forced removal from their ancestral lands, you would cite a passage from the online reading.
However, please be sure that your quotes are just supporting your own argument, not making it for you. Be sure to first contextualize, and then explain, your quotes’ relevance to your own ideas.
No secondary sources of any kind (not even the introductions to and overview of the primary sources) should be quoted and cited. If you are uncertain about what exactly constitutes a “primary source,” please consult the links on our class’ homepage under the module “Course Materials”. Do not quote and cite the textbook, or information you noted in lecture. You may draw upon what you have learned in lecture, from the videos or textbook as background material, but the information you use from them must be put in your own words. The use of any sources other than the primary sources from The American Yawp Reader (before 1877) is not permitted (this is explicitly not a research paper, but an exercise in primary source analysis).
