Part 4: Observation Essay
Critically analyzing Society and its past has always been interesting to me because at the mere fact that I get to learn pieces of their culture and can understand the world before a little bit better. I often ask myself how was the world created and why is the United States the most powerful country in the world. To know this we must know History. Without history there would be no future.
My semester conversation is about global history, and what I can do with this major. There is many ways to learn this such as libraries, archives, primary sources. You become more of an independent researcher and become competitive for graduate programs. My professor discussed that he submitted articles for publishing and wrote a book about Caribbean African migrants in France and their views on life in France.
The article in Part two talks about a dispute between Farmers and traders in Konso, Ethiopia. They were trying to making a living in the postsocialist periphery. This was a period when the government introduced new policies such as democracy, grassroots participation and, to some extent, market liberalization. Its role in the conversation would be a part of Africa’s history. Ethiopia was known as the Horn of Africa. The semester topic is the better understanding of societies and cultures.
The research problem is the jobs that I can find with the history discipline. I’m still not quite sure about what jobs I can get after having a history major and exactly where can I go to get these jobs. The role of part 3 in the conversation was too see what career I can pursue with this major and if it’s what I want to do.
The conference I had with my professor has been inspiring to me academically to follow what I want and to take school seriously. I will probably look more into History because it’s only my first year in college and it seems appealing to me.
