Compare and contrast han dynasty to the roman empire
1. Compare and contrast the height of Egyptian civilization during the Pyramid Age (2682-2181 BC) with the defining Vedic-Aryan civilization along the Indus River (c.1500 BC). While earlier civilizations had settled the Nile and Indus Rivers, this was the time when Egyptian and Indian civilizations and cultures were solidified. Consider how these civilizations were similar/different. What were their achievements? What were the causes of their decline? What is their enduring legacy, if any? How did each influence the development of Western Civilization? 2. Compare and contrast the Roman Empire and its Eastern contemporary, the Han Dynasty, in China. What were their achievements? What were the causes of their decline? What is their enduring legacy, if any? 3. Compare and contrast the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church at the time of their split in 1054 and shortly after. In comparing the theological differences, hierarchical structures, and influence on community, do not go beyond 1517. Include in 1 or 2 paragraphs a short consideration of the modern legacies of these medieval churches and consider how modern European society views them. 4. Compare and contrast Italian and northern humanism using the Italian humanist, Alberti, and the northern humanist,Erasmus, as examples. To what extend did each look to the classical past of Greece and Rome? 5. Compare the Protestant teaching of Luther regarding women to the medieval Catholic view of women. To what extent were these ideas an extension of classical ideas and/or ideas of early church fathers? 6. Describe the rise of the nation-state for either France or England. Consider the origins of the kingdom and significant developments from the Middle Ages through the end of the 1500s. How does this narrative compare to the political development of Germany or Italy in the same period? 7. Compare and contrast early Spanish exploration from 1492–1548 with early English exploration of 1584–1648. Look at the motivations behind Spanish and English exploration;consider how each nation viewed the discoveries made, and how exploration of new lands influenced the political power and economy of each respective nation. *Note that this is a European, not American, topic so keep the focus on England and Spain throughout the paper.

All students in GEO 101 are required to complete a research paper on a topic of their choosing in which they apply course concepts to a current issue or event in a non-Western world region. The goal is to provide you with an opportunity to learn more about a specific part of the world and to sharpen your geographic awareness and understanding. Students may select any realm or region outside of Europe and North America (Chapters 2, 4-12 are fair game). They should then think about a theme (human-environmental interaction, population/migration, culture, or geopolitics) and an event that reflects that theme. The next step will be to compile a range of multimedia and text-based sources and conduct research. The final step will be to answer the key questions posed in your paper—drawing on course concepts and terms, applying knowledge, and drawing conclusions.
- 4-6 pages double-spaced 12 point font (not including title page, notes, bibliography)
- Standard essay format (including an intro/thesis, body and conclusion). You may tweak this by doing a geography “memo.” I’ll distribute some examples of memos in class.
- At least 5 sources (Your textbook counts as 1)
- Chicago style (notes section plus bibliography)
| || |Here are some issues you might want to explore. These are just suggestions feel free to propose your own!
| |Human-Environment Interactions | |Environmental Laws, Treaties, etc.; State of environment; Changing climate; Water and land issues; Human impacts; Agriculture/food.
| |Population and/or Migration | |Migration patterns; Immigration; Urbanization; Population policies/issues; Refugees
| || |Cultural Representations/Cultural conflicts; Languages; Religion; Globalization’s effects on culture, etc.
| || |Governance; Political struggles; Sovereignty movements; Legacies of colonization; Political cooperation with other countries, etc. International Laws
| |Socio-economic Development | |Development Theories; Sustainable development; Industry; Economic change; Impacts of globalization; Inequalities; Status of women/men, minorities, etc, Poverty, Trade agreements
Here is a list of resources which should help you identify specific issues that deal with one of these themes:
BBC World News (web link in Blackboard)
Country Watch (library database)
Current History (a journal available as a hard copy and online)
Foreign Policy (a journal available as a hard copy and online)
National Geographic (a journal available as a hard copy and online)
Here are some example paper topics. Feel free to use one of them or draw inspiration from them to help you create your own.
A few years ago, a YouTube video of Ardi Riza, a two-year old Indonesian baby, went viral. Why? Ardi was puffing away, blowing rings, with all the mannerisms of a 50 year old chain smoker! This was not an isolated case. Indonesia has a real tobacco fix and even a smoking babies “epidemic.” Develop a research paper in which you explore this cultural phenomenon. In the last presidential debate, much of the discussion focused on the Middle East. Write a memo to the next president identifying a second region which is critical to America’s national security. What are the global epicenters for human-trafficking? What kinds of spatial associations can you uncover between these epicenters and variables such as per capita GNI, population density, HDI, and literacy? (You might focus on a more specific issue such as “transplant tourists”) Geography is a discipline which helps us understand why something which makes sense in one place might not make sense in another place. Drawing on geographic concepts, issues, and terms, evaluate FIFA’s decision to select QATAR as the host of the 2022 world cup. What has been the role of social media in the democratic revolutions known as the Arab Spring? Why is Afghanistan so important to the United States strategically?
The paper may take the form of a traditional research paper or may take the form of a “mock memo” written to an influential position of some authority who might benefit from the expert analysis you might provide. The idea for a “geography memo” came from a feature article type from the award-winning magazine Foreign Policy. Try locating some examples of memos from this magazine by using our library databases. Go to Academic OneFile (or one of the general search engines) and do an advanced search. Use “memo” as a keyword and Foreign Policy as the name of the publication.

In the External Factors column, list at least six opportunities you saw in the company you researched
Paper Number 1. Based on your unit reading, create a SWOT analysis for the company you chose to research. Your analysis should be between one to two pages and identify the company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Use Microsoft Word and create four sections to your paper using the SWOT categories as your headings. Each category should have approximately 200-300 words describing the issues that fall under that area. The opportunities and threats should have at least ten items identified for each. Format your SWOT Analysis using APA Style. Use your own words, and include citations and references as needed to avoid plagiarism.
Paper Number 2. Using the information gathered from your SWOT analysis conducted in Unit II, create an EFAS table for the company you researched. Use Microsoft word to create your table. It should have five columns. The first column heading should be entitled External Factors, the second column should be titled Weight, the third column should be titled Rating, the fourth column should be titled Weighted Score, and the fifth column should be titled Comments. (Refer to pages 126-127 in your textbook for an example.)
1. In the External Factors column, list at least six opportunities you saw in the company you researched. Underneath the opportunities, list at least six threats you saw in the company you researched.
2. In the Weight column, assign an importance factor to each of these issues from 0.0-1.0 (1.0 is most important; 0.0 is least important). These ratings are based on the probable impact on a particular company’s current strategic
position. The higher the weight, the more important the factor to the current and future success of the company. You may not be privy to the exact information for this company, so in some cases you will need to use your best
judgment. (You will justify your weighting in column five.)MBA 5101, Strategic Management and Business Policy 3
3. In the Rating column assign a rating factor from 5.0-1.0 (5.0 is Outstanding; 1.0 is poor). These ratings are based on the company’s response to that particular factor. It is a judgment call on how the company is currently dealing
with each specific factor. Once again, you may need to make an estimate in this area if you are not privy to all of the information. (You will justify your weighting in column five.)
4. In the Weighted Score column, multiply the weight from column 2 by the rating in column 3 to get the factor’s weighted score.
5. In the Comments column explain why a particular factor was selected and how its weight and rating were estimated.
6. At the bottom of column 4 add the weighted scores for the external factors. Is the company doing better or worse than others in the same industry? Complete this answer underneath your table.Format your assignment using APA Style. Use your own words, and include citations and references as needed to avoid plagiarism.
