Internment camps were opened as a response to Executive Order 9066, historiographical research about how historians study and write about the history of internment camps with relation to race, class, gender and/ or ethnicity will be explored with an evolutionary approach by breaking historians up into time periods.
The instructions are below:
Using your specific topic related to the history of race, class, gender, and/or ethnicity approved by your instructor in Topic 2, draft a 20page historiographical essay examining how scholars have advanced and debated the topic. Make sure to:
Analyze the major scholarly contributions and explain how they have influenced/shaped the field. As you do this, remember to identify the thesis of significant works and evaluate how effectively authors used evidence to support their arguments.
Include a discussion of theory and methodology as it relates to their topic. This discussion does not have to be in a separate section from the rest of your analysis but can be if that helps you with organization.
Include a 12 page section discussing where the field is headed and suggesting potentially fruitful areas for new research projects (this should be separate from your conclusion).
A formal introduction, conclusion, and bibliography are required. Students should analyze no fewer than 12 scholarly monographs and articles for this assignment.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the Turabian Style Guide.

** I had to pick a historiographical research topic and struggled because I don’t seem to understand historiography vs. history, if you have a different topic that meets the guidelines that would be much easier, please advise.
