    Modern European History, 1789 to 1914
    HIST20069
    Semester 1, 2016
    Topics and Guidelines for the Research Essay
    Research Essay Topics
    Most of the topics below combine one of the key episodes or events discussed during the semester
    with one of the larger themes or structures.
    You may either choose one of the topics below or develop your own research essay topic. In the
    latter case, please get in touch with your tutor in good time.
    1. Which utopias and dystopias drove the French Revolution, and how did these ideas play out
    between 1788 and 1815?
    2. To which extent was the French Revolution driven by and itself fostering nationalism?
    3. Which competing visions of Europe did Napoleon and the Vienna Congress represent, and
    how have historians assessed this issue?
    4. What were the aims of the revolutionaries of 1848, and what sense can we make of their
    social background?
    5. Compare the Italian and German national unifications: why did wars and conquests succeed
    where romantic nationalism had failed? What is the legacy of this ‘top-down’ unification in
    both states?
    6. Which impact did the Industrial Revolution and economic factors have on the key events of
    nineteenth-century European history? Discuss and compare two events.
    7. Why did so many European states engage in such vast imperialist and colonialist projects in
    the last decades of the nineteenth century?
    8. Why did the long peace established in 1815 collapse in 1914? Discuss both short-term and
    long-term factors.
    9. Should we consider the First World War to be part of the nineteenth or the twentieth century?
    10. To which extent does it make sense to speak of the ‘long nineteenth century’ (1789 – 1914)?
    Which alternative schemes for periodisation exist and how do they affect our view of
    ‘modern European history’?
    11. What can present-day policymakers, economists, social activists, or ordinary citizens ‘learn’
    from the nineteenth century? Discuss with reference to specific examples.

    Weighting
    • The essay is worth 50% of the total subject mark.
    Marking criteria
    Argument
    • The argument is clear, directly related to the essay topic, and stated in the introduction.
    • It results from a well-balanced discussion of positions in the historiography and is
    supported by evidence drawn from primary sources.
    • It reflects a careful and thorough engagement with the topic and, possibly, has the
    potential for originality.
    Structure
    • The essay has a concise introduction that outlines the topic, the argument, and, possibly,
    the essay’s structure.
    • In the body, the argument unfolds in a coherent and logical way, and there are well-
    organised sub-sections around key themes.
    • The conclusion summarises the key findings and places the issue at hand in a larger context
    (e.g. geographically, chronologically, thematically); possibly, it refers to relevant issues,
    themes, or problems worthy of further study.
    Research
    • The essay is based on extensive research into both secondary and primary sources.
    • Secondary sources are primarily high-quality, academic publications (journal articles, books,
    book chapters), not predominantly encyclopaedias or websites (although these might well
    be useful references and sources of information).
    • Primary sources are analysed closely and are used to build an argument.
    • Historical events and processes as well as key terms are presented accurately.
    Referencing (footnotes and bibliography)
    • The footnotes are accurate and cite only those works that the author has directly consulted;
    if you have not consulted a reference directly, please use ‘As quoted in …’.
    • Footnotes are used where required and are effective (see writing tips).

    HIST20069 Modern European History, 1789 to 1914 
    • They are in correct Chicago Manual format.
    • Footnotes are complete: they contain all the information needed for the reader to identify
    the source of information; note that when referring to materials found online that have not
    been published in printing, you must provide the url.
    Writing
    • The writing is clear and precise and makes effective use of examples and quotations.
    • Paragraphs are organised around particular themes, possibly using topic sentences.
    • Historical events and processes are described and analysed in a concise and effective way.
    • Correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling are used.
    • Word choice is effective and accurate.
    Attribution
    • The essay is in the student’s own writing, except where quotations are used.
    • Where information has been drawn from primary or secondary sources but is presented in
    the student’s own words, references are provided in the footnotes.
    Research and writing tips
    • You may use primary and secondary documents in the reader and used in lectures; just
    make sure that you provide a full reference (see ‘referencing’ above).
    • For many topics, there are printed collections of primary sources in the library, and there
    are also many helpful online resources (under ‘Research resources’ on the LMS site).
    • Start drafting your essay early on; start with a mind map and broad structure in the very
    early stages of research.
    • Closely proofread your essay before submission; you may also want to show it to friends.
    • Get in touch with academic skills if you feel your writing needs improvement.
    • Footnotes: you do not need to insert a footnote after every sentence; often times, it is more
    effective to place one footnote at the start or the end of a paragraph that refers to all the
    titles that the passage draws on.
    • Closely read good academic history writing: how do these authors structure their
    introduction and conclusion? How do they develop their argument and organise their
    writing? When and how do they place footnotes? How do they structure paragraphs?
    When and how extensively do they quote from primary and secondary sources?
    • In your writing, be as specific as possible, give examples, quote from primary sources,
    analyse – and avoid sweeping generalisations.
    Further tips for essay writing are available here: http://shaps.unimelb.edu.au/students/essay-
    writing-guide (also under ‘History essay writing’ on the LMS).
