Project 2 is an 800-1000 word literature review arguing that a scholarly conversation on a topic has changed—or has not changed—over a period of time. This project uses at least four sources, two of which must be published between 2000 and 2010, and two of which must be published between 2011 and 2017. Project 2 is a Global Citizens Assignment that conforms to Learning Outcomes objectives D, E, and F.
The early draft will be an outline that presents your main points with supporting evidence. Include sources and evidence in the form of quotes or paraphrasing in addition to your argument.
The intermediate draft should be an 800-1,000 word literature review that argues how a scholarly conversation about your chosen topic has changed—or not changed—over a period of time, using two sources published between 2000 and 2010 and two sources published between 2011 and 2016. You should integrate summarized, paraphrased, and quoted materials from your four sources to demonstrate your understanding and provide support for your thesis
For this project, you will find six sources surrounding your topic question and create an annotated bibliography. Then narrow those six sources down to four (two sources published between 2000 and 2010 and two sources published between 2011 and 2016) that demonstrate change or lack of change in perspective over time.
You will create an 800-1,000 word literature review concerning global and cultural interrelationships and interdependencies across place and time that includes the following:
- An introduction that states your thesis (a claim) about how the scholarly conversation has changed over time
- Evidence from the research you did in Project 1 to support your thesis; quote, summarize, and paraphrase according to MLA guidelines
- Four sources from your annotated bibliography, two sources published between 2000 and 2010, and two sources published between 2011 and 2016
- Connections between sources (comparisons and contrasts) to support your argument
In Project 2, you will research and write a literature review that argues how a scholarly conversation about your chosen topic has changed–or not changed–over a period of time. Your audience for this project is an academic audience who is unfamiliar with the topic and changes in perspectives regarding the topic. Project 1 lays the foundation of research and understanding of scholarship concerning global and cultural interrelationships and interdependencies across place and time. You will further develop your research question to reflect the evolution of the research process as it moves from an annotated bibliography to an evidence-based academic essay.
