#2 the feedback of the final paper proposal
Before I begin to speak on the content of your proposal. It is clear that you did not read the directions in great depth. Maybe of your sources and references are websites and dictionary entries when it needed to be PRINTED/HARD sources and not something you got from a website or news articles. This was the biggest issue and the task of a research paper. In terms of your content there is no clear thesis statement here. you mention a potential issue but you don’t really establish what the conflict exactly there is. What is the tension? What type of conflicting interests? The topic is fine but it seems like you really haven’t thought through the particularities of the issue or found suitable literature for it. The project you proposed below is extremely large and it is definitely not clear how your going to go about to demonstrate the issues that you have brought up. You also do not have an literature review or a proper bibliography. You have not followed the directions for this assignment and therefore I cannot give you a passing grade for this. Please let me know if you have any question. The first thing is to think through a concrete problem within the topics you discussed and then find real research materials not news blogs and company websites. You will need to make a trip to the library and do some round research there are a lot of sources you can find on this issues. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
the proposal was attached in the following file. You need to directly make some changes in the final paper based on the feedback of proposal.
