A Case Study of an Atypical Perspective on the First World War

Document Type







Digital Humanities


I came into the source with the big topic of the Treaty of Versailles. I eventually found an article that presented a perspective advocating for the winners to be careful in how harshly they punish Germany after their victory. I decided to switch the focus of my presentation to solely understanding this article. Early on, I found that his opinion was very unusual, so I invested in the usual opinion from the time period. I then spent some time understanding the meaning of the article and explaining why it was controversial for the time. Lastly, I looked at my research process, my big conclusion being that where you look is as important or more important than how you look, aka your analysis of the source as a research student; you must find a good source and then work on your interpretation of that source.
