1 ENGL 1100 S25 Dr. Ladd Spring 2022 Instructions: Annotated Bibliography Due: Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 11:59 pm, Vancouver time (See Course Presentation for late policy) Format: PDF document (other formats, such as Word, cannot be graded) Submission: You will upload this assignment to a dropbox (which I will make available on Mon, Mar 14) on our Moodle course page in the Week 10 Tile. Weighting: 12% of your final grade for the course Length: Your assignment should consist of your working thesis (1-2 sentences) and four annotations (each approximately 150-175 words, not including the reference) Together, these components should be 700 words. Do not go under by more than 100 words or over by more than 200. Remember to put a word count at the end of your assignment. Example: Word Count: 693 General Instructions: Choose *one* of the five topics for the Research Essay on page 4 &5 of this document. If your topic is not based on one of the assigned topics on the list, your Annotated Bibliography will receive a grade of zero. Your annotated bibliography will consist of a working thesis, which you will put at the top of your first page, and annotations for four academic sources that could potentially be used as sources for your research essay (you are required to cite at least five academic sources in your final research essay). This step in the research process is intended to help you move forward with your research by conducting thorough searches for material related to your topic; it also ensures that, while doing so, you are engaging fully and critically with relevant sources. At least TWO of 2 your sources must be Tier 1 Sources (peer-reviewed academic publications) in the KPU Library collection. You may NOT use Tier 4 Sources (non-credible and agenda-driven sources and pieces from unknown sources. i.e., Wikipedia). See the reading “Finding and Using Outside Sources” and “Annotated Bibliography” (both posted on Moodle in the Week 8 tile). The completion of the annotated bibliography will amount to a significant portion of the research, and even writing, of your essay, as you will be able to integrate a lot of the thinking that goes into this bibliography into your actual essay. You will be amazed at how much you will have accomplished when you are done this step—so approach it with enthusiasm! Your Thesis: Start the assignment off by stating your working thesis. This is the scholarly argument or claim you are making in your research essay. See the posted lecture on thesis statements and “Putting the Pieces Together with a Thesis Statement” for examples of appropriate thesis statements. Your Annotations: Each annotation will have two components. thr First, you will provide the complete, formal citation for the source in the MLA (9 th edition) Style. Second, you will write an annotation of 150-175 words, which should consist of: • a summary of the source’s thesis and key arguments • brief, critical assessments of the arguments presented • an explanation of why and how you would include this source in your paper • a description of what search strategies you pursued in finding this source (i.e. using which database/index/other search tool) Be sure to use your paraphrasing skills; as these annotations are quite short, quoting should be kept to a minimum. The following is a sample annotation (on the longer side of the 150-175 word spectrum) demonstrating the kinds of things that I will be looking for: Wedeen, Lisa. “The Politics of Deliberation: Qāt chews as Public Spheres in Yemen.” 3 Public Culture, Vol. 19. no. 1, 2007, pp. 9-84. Based on her ethnographic research of Yemen, political scientist Lisa Wedeen explores the practices of the currently flourishing Qāt—spaces for people to talk and chew Qāt, a plant-based stimulant. Wedeen argues that Qāt chews make a good arena for reconceptualising democracy itself. It is telling that she relegates how women use Qāt chews in non- political ways to a footnote on page 64. In doing so, she misses an opportunity to explore what else, aside from politics, this widespread social practice might be about. Ultimately, Wedeen’s paper is only partially relevant to my own research paper, which is about the role of coffee and other stimulants in the public sphere, specifically how social and political norms evolve through conversation in these environments. However, her discussion of the political deliberations that occur in these spaces (found on p. 100) might be used in support of my assertions about the affordances offered by consumptionbased sociability. I found this article by doing a search within the journal Public Culture in the Humanities International Complete database in the KPU Library, using the keywords “stimulant” and “public sphere,” and limiting the dates of my search to 2005-present. A nice summary Some critical commentary How the source fits in your paper The search strategy you used in coming up with this source 4 Introducing the Research Essay I will post more details about the Research Essay, but some preliminary information: • Due Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at 11:59 pm • Format: PDF document (Submissions in other formats cannot be graded). • Submission: You will upload this assignment to a Moodle dropbox, which I will make available on Monday, April 4 in the Week 13 Tile. • Length: 1500 words, which does not include your Works Cited. Do not go under by more than 100 word or over by 200 words. Editing your work for length is part of this assignment. • Weighting: This assignment is worth 20% of your final grade. • Academic Integrity: If you commit an academic integrity offense in producing this Research Paper, you will receive a zero for this assignment and your plagiarism will be reported to the Office of the Dean of Arts. No exceptions. Topics Topic #1: o Post-secondary education is expensive and often creates student debt. What consequences does this debt create for students? You will need to examine specific, academic research on the psychological and/or financial strain students face with regard to student debt for this topic. Topic #2: o Canada has been exposed to hydraulic fracturing (fracking), which is a type of mining for natural gas. Environments warn that “fracking” will pollute groundwater supplies, while industry argues that it is perfectly safe. Is it? Should the government step in? You will need to examine specific, academic research on the environmental affects (specific studies) of the practice for 5 Topic #3: o There are many ways of dealing with poverty, and one idea is to offer citizens a minimum income. For example, a country could offer a minimum income of $20,000 to every citizen in place of welfare, etc. Is a guaranteed minimum income a good system to help eliminate poverty? You will need to examine specific, academic research on countries that have employed minimum income or something similar for this topic Topic #4: o Prime Minister Justin Trudeau previously argued that our current electoral system is flawed. Would an alternative to first past the post” be a better system for deciding which party or parties run the country? Australia used to have the same system of voting as Canada, but they changed their system. You will need to examine specific, academic research on alternative systems being used compared to first past the post for this topic. Topic #5: o As climate change accelerates, there will be more and more climate refugees—stateless displaced people escaping from extreme environmental changes in their home countries. How can this global humanitarian crisis be prevented? Make an argument about what Canada can do to help climate migrants and to prevent its own citizens from experiencing climate displacement. You will need to examine specific, academic research on the human costs of climate change to successfully tackle this topic.1 ENGL 1100 S25 Dr. Ladd Spring 2022 Instructions: Annotated Bibliography Due: Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 11:59 pm, Vancouver time (See Course Presentation for late policy) Format: PDF document (other formats, such as Word, cannot be graded) Submission: You will upload this assignment to a dropbox (which I will make available on Mon, Mar 14) on our Moodle course page in the Week 10 Tile.
