Everyone in my school hand to hand in their Extended Essays in October. Just out of curiousity I was wondering what all of your topics were.
Mine was in history and was a comparitive study between Japanese and Chinese junior high school history textbooks. I focused on their depictions of Japanese aggression in China 1895-1937. It was really fascinating. It was especially fun looking for so-called 'bias' in the textbooks. In 2001 there was a Japanese Textbook Scandal in which Japanese Right-wing professors published a textbook that was took a pro-Japanese, pro-fascist stance. It was amazing reading the partiality in that. Almost all of the Japanese textbook distributed in schools now tend to show remorse for the Japanese aggression in China though.
