Research Paper (including Outline)
1) Select a traditional art form (visual, verbal, musical, or choreographic) from any country in the Caribbean. Decide on one aspect of the art form to research, such as a particular formal characteristic, historical development/event, or artist. It is critical that your paper have a very narrow focus. Do not select a topic related to the Trinidad Carnival (including masquerade, calypso, or steelband) or related to Jamaican reggae or Rastafarianism. In addition, do not select a topic that simply repeats material covered in the assigned readings or lectures. 2) Research your art form at Wells Library. Your research should be based on primary sources and/or scholarly books or journal articles. 3) Prepare a Research Paper Outline. Your Outline should include a one-paragraph statement of your main topic, a sequential list of sub-topics (one-sentence bullets), and a preliminary list of
4 bibliographic sources. A typed and stapled hard copy of your Outline is due at the beginning of class on Mon., 02/27. 4) Continue your research at Wells Library. 5) Write your paper. Your paper must include a clear thesis and a logical and persuasive argument. A thesis is an assertion of a truth to be defended. State your thesis in the first paragraph of your paper. An argument is a logical development of a thesis, supported by evidence. Make sure that your argument is supported by concrete evidence and that you fully reference all sources. The text of your paper must be 5-6 pages in length, with double spacing, 1-inch margins, and 12-point Times New Roman font. Include endnotes and full references on an additional page. When referencing a journal article accessed online, cite the journal, not the online database. Your paper must be well written in terms of structure, grammar, and spelling.
