Recommend me a topic for a 1500 word essay - All ideas welcome!

As part of my course I must complete a short 1500 word essay which also includes a seminar.

What's interesting, however, is that the essay can be on anything in the span of human history.

Due to the short length of the essay, I'm looking for a topic that is compact enough that I can explore it in as much detail as possible, and preferably one which has sufficent available sources for reference.

I'm open to all suggestions!

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think you should lead your own horse to water.
Agreed.

Elias-We have a rule on historum that we are happy to HELP with homework, but not do it for you. You're gonna have to do more to get the ball rolling. What interests YOU? Surely you can come up with a topic or two.

I would enjoy exploring the intricacies of the Triumvirate, especially it's affect on the demise of the Roman Republic.

I'm also interested in the closing stages of the Ostfront, perhaps focusing on the Battle of Stalingrad, in particular the endurance displayed by those involved in the battle and ultimately it's affect on the Second World War. I have a number of books on the subject, but I feel that due to the limitations of the essay I would be better to focus on the experiences of individuals within the battle, rather than going into detail about the battle itself.

I also thought to explore the experiences of Terence MacSwiney, a Irish hunger striker from the early 1920's who was an inspiration to a number of European liberators.

I apologise if my post came across in a negative way - it certainly was not my intention. I just felt that the essay was so limiting that, despite having quite a lot of room for manouvering in terms of topic, I would ultimatley be limited in how much detail I could go into. I hope to find a topic that is compact enough to allow me to more adequately display my research.

Thanks!

Would you be interested in doing the project on the Peace of Augsburg? :)

I fear the fault is mine. We get so many who ask us to do the work for them that I've gotten a bit jaded. Looks like you're on the right track!

It's a period of history I'm not very familiar with, but it's definitely along the lines of what I'm looking for!

I'll take a look at some articles and see if it's something I would enjoy doing.

Thanks :)

An interesting one is around the disappearance/murder of the two Princes in the Tower. 500 words on each of the main suspects (Richard, Henry and Buckingham) and why they may or may not be guilty. Lots of info about the case, and you get to choose who's to blame. Plus everyone enjoys a murder mystery.

Since I got interested in Rachel Carson's Silent Spring from Liu Cixin's The Three- Body Problem, the topic can be environmental protection and attempts to reverse environmental damages since the publication of Silent Spring.
(I am reading the pdf form of the book; the good thing about PDF is that you can stay home and get quite a few books.)
