Please do not exceed 1500 words. The word limit is very strict.

Please use Harvard (parenthetical) referencing. You may employ explanatory footnotes, but any references in the footnotes should use Harvard style. Use 1.5 line spacing, with 1 inch/2.5 cm margins. This enhances the readability of the text and allows space for comments.
Use a 12pt sans serif font (Calibri, Geneva, Helvetica, Verdana, Trebuchet, etc.). San serif fonts are generally preferred by readers with dyslexia.
Indent at the beginning of new paragraphs or leave a blank to separate paragraphs (apart from the first paragraph of a section). Whatever you do, please be consistent.
Include a title page with the question number and title, and the word count (the word count does not include your bibliography).
Include page numbers at the bottom of each page, apart from the title page.

I will insert a variety of sources, please use these sources, but if necessary use sources from the internet that are accessible online
