Each student will be required to write a research paper on any subject, theme, topic, or period covered in the readings from week 5 to week 12. The paper should be double spaced, 5 pages in length, and contain source notes.
Attached is class syllabus to see what was discussed in week 5 through 12 as well as the associated documents from those weeks.
My topic can you write about Jewish Gangsters and their significance during the Prohibition period in the U.S.. I attached those weeks documents but you can also pull from other sources you find online. Feel free to do a loose response to the question and add facts that you may find online which are not in the documents. Make sure you focus on a topic similar to the question at hand though, doesn’t have to be the exact topic I suggested as long as it is related and a specific topic.
There will be interesting documents and facts online that you should add but please also source some from the documents below.
