Question Description

I’m working on a political science writing question and need support to help me learn.

 

After reading Politics & Society in Contemporary China as well as the report “Greening” China (Links to an external site.) and viewing the documentary, Shifting Nature https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xxyfvb (Links to an external site.) please answer the following questions in a paper. The minimum length is three full pages not including the title page. Papers should not exceed six pages. The list of cited sources should be added at the end. Sources should be reference in parentheses in the text of your paper (Larus 2020, page) or (“Greening” China 2021, page).

The documentary and report should be listed as:

Shifting Nature, Inside China, Part 3. Directed by Jonathan Lewis. Manchester, U.K.: Granada Films, 2007.

Be sure to include the frame in your reference ex: (Shifting Nature, 2007 10:15).

Nis Grünberg and Anna Holzman, Greening China: An Analysis of Beijing’s Sustainable Development Strategies, Mercator Institute for Chinese Studies, January 7, 2021, merics.org/en, 1-15.

You can download this report and you should cite the specific page.

  1. According to the video, the text and the report, what are the political and economic obstacles to protecting China’s environment?
  1. Is technology helping or hurting China’s environment? Please give two specific examples (one positive, one negative, 2 total examples) from the text, report and video to support your answer. There will be some overlap in the sources in their choice of technologies to discuss. So a better analysis of each of the 2 examples would draw from as many sources as possible. [Please note: You don’t need 2 examples from each source].
  1. What is the impact of environmental problems on the gap between the standard of living in China’s rural and urban areas? Please use the video and the text to support your answer.

Your paper should be double-spaced, with 1 inch margins, and use 12-point type.

  • How to Submit the Paper

 

Your paper should be uploaded as a Word document on Canvas. If you haven’t already done so, you must submit the Academic Integrity memo to receive a grade on this assignment.

This paper is due on Tuesday, April 20th at 11:59pm. Students are responsible for making sure their paper is uploaded successfully in the correct format (Word doc or docx). Late papers will be penalized ½ grade per day (including weekend days). Students are also responsible for saving their own work.

 

  • Proper Citation

 

Be sure to cite the text each time you quote from it. The author and page number should be cited in (Larus 2020, p. 12) after the punctuation mark.

You should not cite more than 1-2 pages at a time in any one reference, since you must refer to a specific point in the text. Ex: (Larus 2020, 42-43) is fine, but (Larus 2020, 42-52) is not.

You can never have too many references to the book or the film, but not citing the material properly will reduce your grade substantially.

If you use the author’s exact words, you must use a direct quote. This should only occur for short passages of 1-2 sentences. Ex:

Elizabeth Larus explains that “For Mao, it was not merely a question of adapting Marxism, but sinicizing it—giving it Chinese characteristics by enriching it with elements drawn from China’s experience.” (Larus 2020, p 48).

If you paraphrase (restate the author’s point in your own word), you still have to cite the specific passage in the text.

Ex: Elizabeth Larus explains that Mao blended Marxism with elements of Chinese experience. (Larus 2020, p. 48)

In citing material from the film, explain the specific scene ex: In the scene where the Deputy Minister of the Environmental Protection Administration is interviewed and include the frame (Shifting Nature, 2007, 10:12).

All papers will be checked for proper citation and p-l-a-g-i-a-r-i-s-m. Students who do not cite the material they use properly should expect to lose at least half their grade. Students who plagiarize a paper (see syllabus for details) will fail the course.
