Plan for my Capstone Project

My capstone project investigates semi-autonomous regions and their relationships, culturally, economically, and politically, with their “parent” governments. As part of the Capstone project, I will produce three products, each focusing on a different aspect of semi-autonomous regions. I am planning on completing a research paper that serves as a case study of the Catalan and Scottish Independence movements. I am also planning on creating a podcast that looks at the history of Kurdistan. My final product was a social justice day workshop at Watkinson School.
