You can either write an essay or make a PowerPoint slide
* Either one you choose requires you to have a thesis, supporting the body, and a conclusion. you need to show analytical support for your answer with evidence (at least 3 primary sources analyzed as supporting evidence). 
* The essay needs to be at least 4-6 pages normal margins, double space, 12pt font. two primary sources must be incorporated into your response (with analysis, not simply a casual reference/name dropping). 
* A PowerPoint slide requires 15-20 slides images and embedding multimedia is allowed but you still need to write out your thesis, analysis/ narrative, and conclusion and incorporate 2 primary sources.
PROMPT: 
Support for populist, ethnically-based nationalism has risen throughout the West (in Europe and the United States). The success of political leaders such as Matteo Salvini,  Nigel Farage, Donald Trump, and Marine Le Pen who explicitly support anti-immigration policies are indicative of this transformation. Based upon what you have learned in this class, but Western support for such messages, policies, and leaders into historical context. Some topics to consider might be:
* The Atlantic System and the rise of race-based enslavement
* The Era of New Imperialism
* The Experiences of WWI, WWII, and the Holocaust
* Post-WWII decolonization and the role of the Cold War in destabilizing developing nations.
* The era of globalism and population migration.
Remember that I use Turnitin to detect plagiarism. Any use of sources without citing them, in other words, any attempt to steal someone else’s words and ideas without proper acknowledgment will result in an automatic ZERO. Do Not plagiarize!
