Follow-Up Interview

Choose a topic to explore in depth for your final paper. Review background material on that topic (lectures, assigned material, portfolio items from your colleagues, or other primary or secondary sources). Use the background material to compose more detailed follow-up questions for your first informant and/or to interview a different family member on the topic you've picked.

For your interview essay, make a historical argument about your topic, one that is supported by details from your family. Be sure to cite the background material if you use it in your essay.
