For this particular assignment, much of the data and information that you provide MUST come from the U.S. CIA’s World Factbook, which is available online at: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/index.html (Links to an external site.).
However, you will need to use other sources for some additional information, as well as maps, pictures, and other images that are also expected to be included. Be aware that you will need to provide a proper bibliographic citation for all sources (including the World Factbook) that you used for the assignment on a final “Sources” slide—this includes the sources of maps and pictures, etc.—so be sure to keep track of these as you complete the assignment.
As with the previous assignments, you will be expected to put all of the information requested for this assignment in a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation document. Once again, you must let the instructor know IN ADVANCE if you have any problems with being able to use this software.
Your presentation must include the following slides with the information as specified below:
Slide #1: The State. For slide #1, you should go to the “Government” section of the CIA World Factbook and find and report the following:
Slide #2: The Dominant Nation. For slide #2, you should go to the “People and Society” section of the CIA World Factbook and find and report the following:
Slide #3: Ethnic Groups & Stateless Nations. Find information about at least 2 of the minority “ethnic groups” (i.e., “stateless nations”) that live within this place. The “Ethnic groups” information in the CIA World Factbook “People and Society” section will identify some of these for you, but you may need to consult other sources for additional information. For each group, include the following:
Slide #4: Political Geography in the News. Find and read a recent news article that discusses an example of a political issue in this place. Write a summary of this article (at least 100 words) and, in the process, discuss at least 2 specific examples of concepts or issues from our course material that this article illustrates about the political geography of this place. Add at least one picture either from the article or from another source that helps illustrate an aspect of this article and its connection with this place’s political geography.
Slide #5: Nation-State Analysis. Using the information you have gathered for the previous slides (and previous assignment slides, if appropriate), write an analysis (at least 100 words) regarding the extent to which this place represents a “nation-state,” as specifically defined and discussed in the course content. You must state whether or not it you think it can appropriately be called a “nation-state” based upon the information regarding this concept from the course material, and if not, what other term is more appropriate (e.g., multinational state, multiethnic state, etc.). Reference specific pieces of evidence from the previous slides or other sources to support your analysis. Give at least one example of the potential cultural challenges or issues that you think this place is likely going to face in the near future as a result of its status in this regard.
Slide #6: Territorial Morphology. Using the information provided in the “Government” section of the World Factbook page for this place, create a slide that provides the following information about the government of this place:
Slide #7: Centripetal vs. Centrifugal Forces: Using information from a variety of sources, create a slide that includes the following:
Slide #8: Place Reflection. On this slide, you simply need to write a personal reflection (at least 100 words) in which you discuss the top 3 things (or more, if you prefer) that you learned about this place from this assignment. You may discuss examples of things that you personally found interesting or examples of topics that you think are critically important for understanding cultural and political geography of this place.
Slide #9: Sources. Your final slide should include a listing of all of the sources that you used for this assignment. You should list each source using a PROPER bibliographic citation in either APA or MLA style. This includes the CIA World Factbook, as well as the course textbook or class notes, if used. NOTE! Simply pasting the URL address for a webpage is NOT a proper bibliographic citation. Please let me know in advance if you need any help with making proper citations.
