FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

Want to see the **** I have been doing for the past three months?! No???

Tough!

Ok, I am a bit tired, so sorry for the cynical stuff lately, but this research project is so ridiculously off putting it's not even funny. Here is the outline for the major paper. I say major because it will be roughly 30-40 pages in length, so do not let the amount of information here fool you.

  1. Introduction
    • Overview of African Slavery.
    • Definition of African Slavery.
    • Concept of Ideological Frameworks.

 

      2.     Kinship

    • Definition of Kinship.
    • Kinship ideology.
    • Practices and procedures.
    • The economic effects of Kinship.
 
  1.  Pawnship
    • Definition of Pawnship.
    • Pawnship ideology.
    • Pawnship practices and procedures.
    • The economics and effects of Pawnship vs Kinship.
 
  1.  Muslim Law
    • Slavery under Muslim Law and the Qur’an.
    • Ideology of Slavery in Islamic societies.
    • Procedures and practices under Muslim Law.
    • Slave roles within Muslim Law.
    • Comparisons to Pawnship and Kinship.
    • Treatment of women.
 
  1. Other Types of Slavery
    • Self-Slaves.
    • Debt-Slavery.
    • Subordinate tribesmen.
 
  1. General Practices within the Slavery system.
    • Overview of information.
    • Purchasing of slaves.
    • Slave hierarchies.
    • Slaves as wealth.
    • Slave Roles.
    • Tribal Rituals and slaves.
    • Housing and treatment of slaves.
 
 
  1. Centralized vs Non-Centralized Societies in Africa
    • Overview of Centralized and Non-Centralized societies.
    • Importance to slavery in Africa.
    • Centralized Society practices.
    • Non-Centralized Society practices.
    • Influence on the Slave Trade.
 
  1. The Slave Trade Within Pre-Colonial Africa
    • Overview of the Slave Trade.
    • Overview of the geographic locations of the Trade.
    • The trade routes.
    • Slave Raiding.
    • Economic estimates and effects.
    • Influence on the Atlantic Slave Trade
 
9.       Conclusion
    • Final thoughts.
    • Overview of the books and articles read.
    • Graphs and Charts.
    • Bibliography.

I am actually expecting a shorter paper than most, roughly 25-30 pages, but the information here is vast, old, and very hard to decipher, let alone explain in a paper...and a oral presentation....and on an outline.

 

Got to love senior year.
