I know that this has no relation to anything on this board at all but plz help...

So I'm taking a class this semester titled Western Tradition since 1500. I stopped attending class when I realized that our professor is a fucking dick head who is intent on doling out grades centered on say 84% with 2 percentage points as 1 standard deviation (I suspected this when my first research paper received an 89% despite being well researched, well reasoned, and thoroughly academic in nature - none of which are qualities that could be said to apply to many, or any, other students in the class. I realized it was true when my girlfriend cheated off me on the midterm, told me afterward that she had failed, and then scored an 83-only 5 points lower than me. Comparing our exams, it became apparent that my professor is indeed a cock-sucker).

Anyway - I have to write a final paper. The topic is: "For this assignment you are to pick a specific event that you think was especially important in the development of the western tradition after the French Revolution. In your paper you should describe the event (what it was, how it came about, etc.) and then explain why your regard it as having been so significant."

I'm sure most people will write about the big ones - holocaust, cold war, etc etc etc. I wanna write about an event that doesn't show up in our book even - the Great London Fog of 1952.

Am I gonna fucking fail if I do this? The notion of the 'Western Tradition' seems rather silly to me - I know that most class time was spent talking about liberal revolutions, industrial advancements, etc - so I feel that an event like mine, which helped to shape the coming environmental revolution, could certainly be said to have influenced whatever the fuck the Western Tradition is.

Halp.

I would totally write a paper on art theory and The French Revolution.

Hell, how art made its way from Europe to Western society. Imitation, import, etc.

Aside from my ideas, I always believe with following your gut when writing a paper more so than specifics in this kind of case. Your gut and heart make for better writing.

A curious reader won't deny it.

As long as you have specific examples that you are able to back up with strong evidence, go for it.

Being a professor myself, I can tell you that it all depends on the argument you have. If a student handed me a paper that said "The Holukosrt was teh suck cuz peeple dyed!" and you said "The Great Fog of London changed Western Culture because X had an impact on Y as demonstrated by Z and cited by A, B, and C...", you'd definitely get a better grade even if I thought the Holocaust is more important.

Most teachers I know would much rather read a paper on The Great Smog than The Holocaust. But the problem is that your teacher sounds like an idiot, so it's hard for any of us to judge how he'll react. If this was my problem, I'd probably send the teacher an email or drop by their office to see what they thought about it.
