Answer the following more general discussion question (about two pages (typed) total):
How do recent issues and events in your region covered by the newspaper illustrate the general processes of a) “DIVERSITY” and/or b) “GLOBALIZATION” within your selected region?
You can emphasize “diversity” or “globalization” in your discussion or you can explore how both are evident. You may want to revisit initial discussions of these ideas in the text (Chapter 1). For this discussion, you may certainly rely on MORE than just the six articles used above in Part One.…you may also use examples/events discussed elsewhere in these newspapers.

You must complete BOTH Parts one and two of the project…both the collection of articles (6) and the essay on globalization/diversity for the region associated with the newspaper.
