Academic Writing - Globalization

Recommended Posts

(salam)

Anyone some experience on academic writing? Does someone has an example maybe? I have to write like..on globalization -> an academic research with:

- Title

- Introduction (background)

- Literature review

- Thesis

- etc.

Or is someone able to guide me in this process? It's kind of the first time I'm doing this. All help would be welcome. :D

What is your field of study? Sociology? Anthropology? Just asking because globalization is a huge topic that needs to be narrowed down.

If this is a paper for an English class, you can narrow it down to whatever you wish. If it's for a Sociology or Anthropology course, you need to stick to sociological or anthropological topics.

Yes it's for an English class, International Business is what I'm studying. But I've never did this before so it's kind of..difficult :S

The final paper should be 2000 words in total. And btw, I am choosing Culture as specification. So Globalization and Culture

Don't worry. 2000 words is nothing, maybe 6 or 7 pages? Read this quote and think how you can choose a topic, something you are interested in:

You might focus on individual human actors, studying the way that people are affected by the globalizing world. This approach could possibly include a study of Asian sweatshop workers' experiences, or perhaps how consumers' decisions shape the overall system.

Or you might choose to focus on social structures or organizations. This approach might involve looking at the decisions being made at the national or international level, such as the free-trade agreements that change the relationships between governments and corporations. Or you might look into the organizational structures of corporations and measure how they are changing under globalization. Another structural approach would be to focus on the social networks linking subjects together. That could lead you to look at how migrants rely on social contacts to make their way to other countries, as well as to help them find work upon their arrival.

Finally, you might want to focus on cultural objects or social artifacts as your unit of analysis. One fine example would be to look at the production of those tennis shoes the kids seem to like so much. You could look at either the material production of the shoe (tracing it from its sweatshop origins to its arrival on the showroom floor of malls across America) or its cultural production (attempting to understand how advertising and celebrities have turned such shoes into necessities and cultural icons).

Yeh I will be focusing on something, but it would be great if I had an example. Not necessarily on globalization, but just a lay-out not just a Googled one, but one that has been graded by a university professor for example. I was actually looking for that, so I knew how to organize the information

But thanks for helping sister ^_^

Oh my, you want a real paper with the professor's comments and grades. I wish I could help you. I don't think I kept any of my university work, because it was on the computer hard drive. Unfortnately, I had so many word files that did not get backed up properly and I lost them. At first I was really upset, but then I just told myself that's the way it goes. When you expect someone else to back up your stuff, when it doesn't get done, you can only blame yourself. :blush:

Well, good luck with your search! Maybe someone can help you out. :) take care
