Over the semester, you will read ten essays to supplement the class material (roughly one a week). The articles should deal with course topics, but can reflect your own research interests within those topics. You should identify a “theme” or “issue” in the readings that you wish to study; then, locate articles to help your understanding of it. Please try to find articles at least ten pages in length.
Please follow MLA format for annotated bibliographies. First, cite the article. Then, after skipping a space, compose a paragraph (approximately 250-350 words, single-spaced) that both summarizes the article and evaluates it.
The annotated bibliography is due on November 21, and you will present your research to the class on that day.
