Question about scope of history EE

Recommended Posts

So we just got our EE talk a week ago, and we have to choose mentors soon. I want to do a history EE on the role of agriculture in Chinese history, however I fear that the scope will be way too large (centuries and centuries and centuries and centuries....). All the exemplary history EEs I have seen pertain to topics with a very small scope, such as a WW2 operation, uprisings in year 19xx, etc etc. Is my topic problematic?

Yes, yes, yes, yes. You only have four thousand words and 'Chinese history' is far too broad of a scope, as you said, due to the number of people . I'd recommend doing some research, picking perhaps a decade or one particular event and focusing on the role of agriculture in that event/decade.
