To explore the concept of complexity, think a little more about the topic you have chosen, “The women’s suffrage and 19th amendment” for your historical analysis essay. Your essay, of course, is relatively brief, so your thesis statement is probably fairly narrow. That is as it should be.
Imagine that you are not writing a brief research paper—instead, you are writing a full-length book. What would you do to produce a fuller, more complex discussion of this event? What different historical lenses might you apply? What causes or consequences of this event would you examine in greater depth? Does your event raise morally complex questions?
