Hope all’s well, 242. At this juncture in the course, you’ve written a number of blogs on lit-related things. You’ve also composed a keyword entry, as well as an academic paragraph. Now, before you start gathering materials (especially secondary sources) for your final paper, how about a research question?
Indeed, for this entry, all you need to do is compose a single question. However, the question should:
Ideally begin with “how.”
Include a reference to one or two of your primary sources (e.g., a novel, painting, film, audio recording, poem, ad, or short fiction you are studying).
Give your reader a sense of context (e.g., geography, historical time frame/period, and/or a specific modernist movement/scene).
Tacitly or explicitly mention the perspective you are taking on your topic (e.g., aesthetics, history, or questions of representation).
If you wish, then—in your post—you can replicate the exercise from Monday’s class and move, step-by-step, from an “if/does” to a “what/who” to a “why” to a “how” question.
Please post your entry before our meeting on Monday, May 3rd.
& once again: every entry on the blog should be categorized and include an image and three tags. The category for this entry is “research″.
Did you forget how to embed a custom image? Here’s a review of how-to.
See me with questions!
