There are THREE seperate sections. Please sight sources for each question right below. Thank you!
1. As the need for major economic transitions within Appalachia, especially the coalfields, becomes more widely accepted, questions
about how to define and theorize the past in order to overcome its legacies and organize toward brighter futures become more urgent. Does “internal colony” adequately clarify the context and aims of the struggle in the area? Should ridding the region of outsider ownership and control by a central organizing goal for macro social work intervention?
2. Is there a widening economic gap nationwide and in Appalachia? With the reduction of funding for programs specifically for those living at or below the poverty line, will the Appalachian region experience challenges differently than other regions?
3. Revisit the questions from module one: 1) “Is there an Appalachian Culture”? 2) If so, of what does it consist? 3) Did the readings or the comments from over the semester alter your opinion on the first clause and inform your answer on the second clause?
