It could be the Trump presidency, the rise of the Alt-Right, Black Lives Matter uprisings, the Climate Crisis, #MeToo, DACA, the changing nature of truth, the Covid-19 public health emergency, issues of technology and privacy, etc… and use course materials to explain how we got here. Introduction: Select one current trend/ process/ movement (could be from the suggestions in the prompt above or not), and link it to an ongoing process or series of events that occurred between 1945- 2020. Clearly explain and define your chosen current event, and the historical context you are linking it to. State a clear thesis in which you answer the prompt and outline your supporting evidence. If necessary you may cite 1-2 outside sources related to your chosen current event. In your body paragraphs, include at least three ways, from three distinct moments post- 1945 that relate to your topic and demonstrate how they link thematically to your chosen current issue.In your conclusion: What you think would change if more people were aware of the historical context to the trend/ process/ moment you discuss in your essay?

Introduction: In your introduction discuss what the quote means, particularly how you define justice in your analysis. Provide a clear thesis statement that responds to the prompt and states how you will support your argument.In your body paragraphs, select three examples from distinct historical moments between 1945 and 2020 that speak to the issue of justice (according to your definition) and advance your answer to the prompt. In your conclusion: Sum up your analysis by restating your thesis and your supporting evidence. Consider, given the trajectory you outline in your essay, what would need to happen for the arc to bend further towards justice in the future? Optional extra credit (worth up to 1 point):Throughout the 20th century, the rise of conspiracy theories and misinformation has changed the way that we understand the nature of truth.
