First claim, by email or verbal, gets the topic; every topic only once.

Many of the topics here are vague. Students can, and are encouraged to, specify topics. Begin with branstorming : what questions do you want to answer ? What information do you have access to ? Papers should be divided in several chapters and have a concluding analysis. Papers should contain endnotes and references.
