Use the 4 most important or interesting articles you find on the history of cholera and industrialization in the UK in the 18th and 19th c. to write a short essay (300-600 words). Explain the historical significance of the articles you chose, focusing on how your chosen articles show change over time. Your essay should lead you to a new insight; something you didn’t know before doing these article searches. It should also take into account the perspective of the sources that you use. Remember: in order to use these historical newspaper articles as primary sources, we need to be concerned with how they represent what people thought and were aware of at the time–you are not just using them to collect facts about cholera outbreaks.
Essay is due in a comment post on the Digital History Lab blog (http://digitalhistorylab.com) by September 9th at 9pm.
