In your final research paper, you must discuss at least two dimensions of globalization–history, the economy, politics, culture, ecology, ideology–and their impact on East Asia. Be sure to describe both positive and negative aspects, and explain what you imagine the future of the region will be as a result.
You also need to conduct outside research using at least one outside source and list the outside source on a bibliography/works cited page.
