Begin the paper with a brief paragraph explaining which question you plan to answer, how you will answer it, and your basic theme (due June 11). Paper topic: Compare Las Casas’ view of the rationale, methods, motives, and effects of Spanish exploration and conquest with what the majority of Spanish voyagers and conquistadors espoused about the process. Use the Las Casas book to refute or support the notion that the Spanish were \’civilizing\’ the natives. How do you account for this difference? Be sure to use a few quotes from Las Casas and elsewhere in the process. Specifications: A paper of two to four pages (600-1200 words), due June 11. Use as sources the De Las Casas, the Felipe Fernandez-Armesto text AND at least TWO outside materials (internet sources are fine but must not be .COM, but rather .edu or .gov or .org only). The paper will be judged on its ability to interpret and analyze these sources, make a coherent argument from them, and to convey these thoughts in concise and clear English. Please reference quotes (and put them in quotes to avoid plagiarism) and sources at least a 3-4 times in the paper (in parentheses with source and p. # if available). Must have a Bibliography of sources used Sources: An account of the Destruction of the Indies. By Bartolome De las Casis. Pathfinders – A global History of Exploration. By Felipe Fernandez-Armesto
