This paper gives you the chance to think about interdisciplinary approaches (or research methods) used by scholars (in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences) to research Kansas landscapes.
In 500-750 words, explain the methods scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences use to research Kansas landscapes.
Paragraph 1: Introduce the Kansas landscape topics that we have discussed during this course (EVRN 171). You should introduce the source materials (texts & paintings; data on Kansas farms & farmers; water quality data) that we have used in class (to better understand Kansas landscapes) and provide a brief summary of each. Look at your notes, course readings, and in-class activities for the source materials and types of Kansas landscapes topics that we talked about during class.
Paragraphs 2, 3, 4: Explain the interdisciplinary methods and sources that are used to research Kansas landscapes. What types of knowledge are scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences interested in? You should use examples from our class to illustrate your points. For example, what type of scholar would research the Days of Darkness: Fighting the Elements, from Pioneer Women? What methods would they use when researching that text?
Paragraph 5: Explain the advantages of an interdisciplinary approach to Kansas landscape topics. What is gained by using multiple disciplinary approaches? What would be missed if environmental studies were approached from only one discipline? You should include at least one specific example of a Kansas landscapes topic from the class to illustrate your points.
The final paper should be submitted on Blackboard by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 6 (Stop Day). The submission link is posted under Assignments. You are welcome to submit your final assignment early.
