At least one source must be an article in a scholarly journal (e.g., The Journal of Modern History, Contemporary Literature). At least one outside source should be a book published by a university press (e.g., University of North Carolina Press, Stanford University Press), although I am not insisting that you utilize such a book, given COVID-19 restrictions. You should end your essay with a Works Cited page. Attributions to the works listed there should be given parenthetically in your essay. The best research tool for locating relevant secondary sources is the MLA International Bibliography, conveniently available on our library’s web page. Click on “Research Databases”; scroll down to “MLA International Bibliography” and click; put in your information, and then search under “subject.” Any essay that fails to observe the guidelines on the format provided early in the course will be returned to its author, who must hand in a corrected version. The student will receive the usual penalty for a late paper, one full grade, and will be penalized another full grade for each day the essay is late after the first.
