Dr. E mma Alexander 1 HIST 1013/3 -001 WORLD S OF ASIA & AFRICA SINCE 1750 RESEARCH ESSAY WORTH 35 % OF FINAL GRADE Essay Proposal & Annotated Bibliography – Due February 10 , 20 22 — 10 % Re search Essay – Due March 3, 202 2 – 20% Resubmission of Re search Essay – Due April 8, 202 2 — 5% In your essay you will tell the story of a transnational individual who lived between 1750 and 202 2, illustrating the way in which she or he shaped or was shaped by transnational processes (e.g., slavery, colonialism, capitalism, militarism, mi gration) or movements of ideas (e.g., socialism, democracy, anarchism, communism, nationalism, fascism, feminism, racism). The broader question to answer in this biography is this: What made this person transnational? In what ways were her or his life and her experiences shaped by more than just her/his own nation? How did she or he influence people in different places, regions, and countries? These are general questions to guide you in your research. As you learn more about the person you’ve chosen you ask those questions as you read. Then, having learnt more about their life you think about how to frame your own question about their transnationality. It will be differen t for every individual. In your essay you formulate the question you are asking, and then in your essay you try to answer your own question. The topic should fit within the parameters of the course and not be something that you have worked on before in a nother course. PART 1: Proposal and Annotated Bibliography This assignment requires you to submit a bri ef ( 350 word ) statement of your topic and line of argument along with a preliminary bibliography. This will be returned to you quickly after submission with comments and suggestions as to how to go forward with your chosen topic. Dr. E mma Alexander 2 In your statement I expect a general statement of your research question and an explanation of how you plan to tackle the question. You are not writing the essay, you are startin g to think about your approach to it. Please submit a working bibliography of a MINIMUM of FIVE (5) SOURCES that includes all the peer -reviewed books or scholarly articles you have identified so far as being potentially useful in answering your research qu estion . Do NOT cite book reviews. The annotation of the bibliography – is a sentence beside each item in the bibliography that explains why it is useful for your research. (See Nexus for an example of an annotated bibliography). Your bibliography MUST be in alphabetical order or it is not a bibliography. Use Proposal Checklist (see Nexus). If the checklist is NOT used, the paper wi ll automatically lose 10% of the grade for the proposal. To submit the checklist fill it out, take a photo with your phone or scan it, and upload it with the essay. PART 2: Research Essay Use Essay Checklist (see Nexus). If the checklist is NOT used, the paper will automa tically lose 10% of the grade for the essay. For tips on essay writing refer to Jules Benjamin Chapters 9 & 10 particularly, and ask me for help in office hours if you get stuck with research, with constructing your argument, or with structuring your essay. PART 3: Re -submission of Essay After you have received the graded research essay back from me you are REQUIRED to resubmit it, revised according to my suggestions and comments and your own re -thinking of the essay. Your overall final grade is dependent on your resubmission , you risk losing 25% of your overall grade in the course if you fail to complete your essay re -submission. RESEARCH PROCESS 1. Start early!! Pick a person from the list on pages 4 -5. Google them! But we should only use google for discovery, not for actual research. Dr. E mma Alexander 3 2. Get reading! Non -peer -reviewed sources can be useful, even if you cannot cite them. Use Wikipedia to get oriented to a topic and discover what the controversies and debates are. Wikipedia often has a bibliography at the end of the article. (You may use encyclopedias to look things up, b ut NO ENCYCLOPEDIAS of ANY KIND to be cited in your final bibliography) . 3. Start your research using the UW catalogue, the UW Library databases, Google Scholar ONCE only once logged into the UW Library . Build Your Preliminary Bibliography . Look for articles from JSTOR , Historical Abstracts , Project Muse , EBSCO Academic Search Premier , Sage , Taylor & Francis and Cambridge Journals . Find at least FIVE (5) sources in total, either books or articles . 4. START with the most recent material Newer books and articles will have the most up -to-date bibliographies. Look at the footnotes, and find these items. Reading more recent works you can drop some of the older items. Only rarely cite items published before 1980 . 5. START with essays and articles Articles are a lot easier to digest than books. You will more easily get into the material and understand the subject by reading three focused articles on the subject than one book. 6. Use Book Reviews Once you have books on your list check the UW library d atabases for book reviews. Reviews will help you understand what the book cont ributes to the wider debates you are examining . If you find a review useful, look to see what else that reviewer has written. 7. What about Primary Sources? The purpose of your research paper is to build an argument based on a critical examination of secondary source materials, to understand what other historians have said about a subject. You are providing a critical analysis of a historical problem based on your reading of the work of other scholars. Primary sources may help you gain insi ght, but may also distract you . 8. Work up a Research Question: What problem are you trying to solve ? Af ter reviewing your notes or after reading decide what the question is. Fr om this question develop a working thesis. Modify both your thesis and your research question as your research carries you in new directions. Dr. E mma Alexander 4 9. Ask for help: I strongly encourage you to meet with me in the course of preparing this paper. I will have suggestions for bibliography, help you locate sources, refine an argument, help with writing or just talk through the process. I will answer short questions by emai l, but it is better to come to office hours on zoom or arrange a separate zoom meeting using the Calendly app to meet with me if you want to discuss your work in progress. 10. Technical stuff: Your essay should be approximately 1500 words in length, NOT includ ing your bibliography, and endnotes or footnotes. Your paper should be double -spaced, standard typeface, with standard margins. NUMBER the pages of your paper and include a title page with your name, my name, the course number and the title of y our paper. NO enclyclopedias to be referenced in your bibliography or notes. Upload your paper to the NEXUS Assessments – Assignment Folder. Make sure you have a back -up. Conform to these conventions: a) Use endnotes or footnotes, DO NOT use in-text parenthetical (th ese are references in brackets in the text) . Your notes and bibliography should be in Chicago style. b) Include a bibliography listing all the works used and cited in your paper. If a work is not cited in a foot/endnote, it does NOT belong in your bibliogr aphy.
