Preliminary research proposal and outline for essay: INNOVATION

Your proposal should explain your chosen innovation for a curious audience (your classmates and me). Depending on the obscurity of the innovation, translate technical terms when necessary. What do you know about it?

What would you like to explore further or understand better? Ideally, you will also point to tensions or contradictions intrinsic to your innovation, or surprising, unexpected, or non-obvious things about it.

You should also explain what questions it raises for you, and how you intend to connect it to specific ideas and questions about innovation that we have discussed so far. You may reference our readings and/or any of your prior homework and in-class assignments from this progression in order to explain these connections.

Brainstorm a list of 10-20 search terms (words and short phrases) that you may use to search for sources related to your innovation and the issues/contexts it’s connected to.
