1. Write a 5-7 page research paper about a national group or movement of your choice, addressing its origins, characteristics, and goals.
2. Write a 5-7 page paper about a nationalist conflict of your choice, using any of the course readings to analyze and explain your chosen conflict. The most important question your paper should answer is: what makes people behave like nationalists?
