Annotated Bibliography and Thesis Statement

PART 1: ANNOTATED Bibliography and Thesis Statement/Due July 10th Conduct preliminary research on the form, content, and context of your artwork. Identify minimum THREE online academic sources from your library website that are relevant to your research. Your sources could be eBooks and journal articles. Read your sources and write about 150 words on each source indicating what it contains and how it is relevant to your research. Also, produce a THESIS STAETEMNT that introduces your research argument. What Is an Annotated Bibliography? An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. The Process Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research. First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic. Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style. Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic. (https://guides.library.cornell.edu/annotatedbibliography) Submit your annotated bibliography on July 10th. You will receive suggestions and comments for further research from me. Note that both your bibliography and thesis statement might change as your research develops. PART 2: RESEARCH PAPER/Due July 28 Your essay includes visual as well as contextual analyses of the artwork. Some key questions are: What are the forms, art movements, and artists who inspired this work? What are the political, social, and cultural issues shaping this artwork?

You will write your research paper in 1000 words (about 4 pages), Times New Roman, font 12, double-spaced, with normal margins. Indicate the word count on front page. This project is worth 20%. Introduction – Paragraph #1: Introduce artwork by artist, title, and date, with a brief description of the artwork, and end the paragraph with a thesis statement that answers the question: How do the visual aspects of the artwork explore the ideas/concepts/issues that your artist is interested in? Body – Paragraph #2: Describe and analyse your artwork’s visual and conceptual aspects in greater detail. Explain how this artwork was produced or performed in detail (you may include materials, process, actions, story, dimensions, location if relevant, how the viewer interacts with it, etc.) Body Paragraphs #2–4: Describe and analyse your artwork’s visual and conceptual aspects in greater detail. Analyse how each aspect of the artwork’s production, performance, or any other visual aspect relates to the artist’s overall interests or agenda. What cultural, political, social, economic, or artistic issues specifically does the artwork address? Be specific, provide research that defines the issue and the concerns around it. (e.g. national identity, the institution, the environment, human relationships, sexuality, gender) What is the artwork trying to communicate, or what is it trying to explore? What is significant about the materials, location, or process used? Use research to define the visual aspects and strategies (e.g. what is juxtaposition, dematerialization, performance, gender, etc.) and analyse how these specific strategies are used to give the artwork meaning. Describe, define, explain, analyse each aspect, idea, and vocabulary term thoroughly. Conclusion – Paragraph #5: Give a summary of your findings. Never introduce new information in your conclusion.
