Sample text

Once you have a question, imagine some plausible answers, no matter how sketchy or speculative. At this stage, don’t worry whether they’re right. That comes later. For example, suppose you ask, Why do some religions use masks in ceremonies while others don’t? You might speculate, Maybe cultures with many spirits need masks to distinguish them. Maybe masks are common in cultures that mix religion and medicine. Maybe religions originating in the Middle East were influenced by the Jewish prohibition against idolatry.

2). Try the following kinds of questions (the categories are loose and overlap, so don’t worry about keeping them distinct). 1. Ask how the topic fits into a larger context (historical, social, cultural, geographic, functional, economic, and so on): ■ How does your topic fit into a larger story? What came before masks? How did masks come into being? Why? What changes have they caused in other parts of their social or geographic setting? How and why did that happen? Why have masks become a part of Halloween?

So they anticipate that readers will ask a question of their own: So what? Why should I care why the Alamo story has become a legend? That So what? can vex even the most experienced researcher, but every researcher must try to answer it before it’s asked: If we can find that out, we might better understand the bigger question of how such stories shape our national character.
