ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW

In the first assignment you examined primary sources, the raw material that historians use to interpret the past. In this assignment you will analyze secondary sources: articles written by historians. Scholarly historical articles are based on a historian’s interpretation of primary sources and other secondary literature. With this assignment you will evaluate and appraise two secondary sources written by historians. Your appraisal should compare and contrast the ways the authors present their arguments, the themes they use, and their interpretations.

ASSIGNMENT GUIDELINES

Choose one of the sets listed below and read the articles carefully. Formulate a critical analysis of the two articles, identifying and comparing their main arguments, the sources they use, and the major themes they develop to support their argument. The articles are available on UM Learn.

Some questions to consider:

  • What is each author’s main argument/thesis?
  • What do the article sets tell us about the overarching theme (gender and the Depression OR race/ethnicity and health)?
  • What main themes does each author use to develop and support their thesis?
  • What primary sources does the author analyze and are they evaluated properly?
  • What links can you make between the two articles? Are there differences or similarities in the interpretations? Is one stronger than the other?? Do they complement each other?
  • How and why are these articles significant?
