Techno Research Paper
There are three parts to this paper. It should be double-spaced and use 12 Point Font
Each section should be at least 1 1/2 pages long
Hints for internet research:
*Be creative in your search and try different word combinations eg)"eighties techno" might work better than "80s techno"
*Something like "techno" might be too broad, be more specific eg)"women in techno" or less specific
*On the other hand, you may be TOO specific eg)"Oakland Techno" will get you less responses than "Bay Area techno"
*When you get a list of websites, the first one may not necessarily be the best
A good website with basic info:
I. An overview of techno.
Trace the development of techno and/or electro from the '80s to the '90s to its current state. Some things to think about: technology, social events/factors that shaped its development, the role of race and gender, the use of technology, popular artists, other genres that influenced techno or grew out of techno. These are suggestions. As you research, you may develop your own ideas. The key is to show how the idea of techno has changed over the decades. In your conclusion be sure to say what's the current state of techno and the possible future. Cite at least two sources.
