Hello everyone!

Everyone in my school hand to hand in their Extended Essays in October. Just out of curiousity I was wondering what all of your topics were.

Mine was in history and was a comparitive study between Japanese and Chinese junior high school history textbooks. I focused on their depictions of Japanese aggression in China 1895-1937. It was really fascinating. It was especially fun looking for so-called 'bias' in the textbooks. In 2001 there was a Japanese Textbook Scandal in which Japanese Right-wing professors published a textbook that was took a pro-Japanese, pro-fascist stance. It was amazing reading the partiality in that. Almost all of the Japanese textbook distributed in schools now tend to show remorse for the Japanese aggression in China though.

My Extended Essay title was: "To what extent are Shakespeare's plays universal in time and setting with special reference to Matthew Warchus' production of the Winter's Tale". I wrote it for Theatre Arts and gave research of practical, theoretical and interpretational nature. I especially referred to the Winter's Tale production because it was set in America in the 1950s.

Um.... I'm really new to this site and this is my first post so here goes...
I'm in IB1 this year and I've only THOUGHT of my Extended Essay. I was hoping to do it on something very medical since that is my field of interest. My question to you guys... would the topic of Cancer be too broad to tackle in 4000 words?

Yea, you'd have to really narrow it down, plus it must be written in an IB subject, be that Chemistry, Biology or whatever.

Mine is in Visual Arts, "Anti-Essentialism and the Comics Definition Debate." Pretty cool topic, looked up various critical analyses and definitions of the medium, said that semantic boundaries restrict the possiblities of any medium so that while all have some insight to offer, no definition is wholly correct.
