Please do a paper on Diamonds as a post-1800 commodity.
- For your paper, I would like to see you describe how your animal, food stuff, or chemical was produced or consumed at a certain time. Who produced it? Who consumed it? Where was it produced? It is important not to fetishize your commodity. Make sure that you think and write seriously about the human lives and places that are active or implicated in the production and consumption of the product.
You can be creative, and I expect that the approaches that people will bring will be different as we all have different skill sets and different interests and experiences. Theo one thing that I ask of you is you write a chronological paper and proofread your writing before submission.
What kind of sources can you use? Please limit yourself to one website, and do not use a website this is not sponsored by a university or nonpartisan organization. I am serious about this. The more labor that you put into your paper, the more I will reward you for your work. So you might want to use maps, books, scientific articles, statistics, images, or advertisements. We will talk about research and writing weekly. I also require the use of one primary source. (We will talk about what a primary source is at the beginning of the semester.)
double-spaced and written in 12-point standard font. Please cite other`s work according to the most recent version of Chicago Manual of Style or MLA.

In this case, the speculators are able to deal in diamond although they do not have to deliver the actual diamond. Over the years, there have been the c
