Topic 1 is something that interests me and I am quite familiar with, however there hundreds of sources I'd have to sift through even after refining my topic so picking the right ones could potentially take a long time.
Topic 2 isn't something that I'd normally read about in my spare time but I don't find it completely boring, and there are fewer sources to sift through which appear to be quite sufficient for the purposes of the assignment I'm doing.
Which one should I choose?
ETA: I think I'm going to broaden my horizons a little and go for the second topic. Thanks TQC. :D
