Assignment: Research Paper Mechanics: 7-9 pages, double-spaced, 12 point, 1” margins, MLA format. Must include two researched sources (along with Pickering and one cultural/social/historical text ) . Applying a critical or theoretical concept to another text and synthesizing researched sources into your argument is how many, if not most, academic writing is produced. For this paper, you will apply a critical concept from Gilman to think about how stereotypes are represented in a cultural, historical, or social text to make a claim about what that text reveals about stereotypes or the process of stereotyping. In this paper you will use all the skills you have already practiced in your short papers (and use parts of those papers, revised if necessary). You will be doing a close analysis of critical concepts (like in SP1), applying concepts to a close reading of a cultural text (continuing your work from SP2), researching your topic (described in SP3), staking a claim about how stereotypes function in a text (as proposed in SP4) and making your argument using Gilman’s critical essay, a text, and two researched sources (as discussed in SP5) as evidence to support your claim. Writing Guidelines Checklist Introduce/discuss Gilman’s critical essay and its main concepts/theories of stereotyping. Every paper must include a synopsis of Pickering’s main claims and an analysis of one concept. Select, analyze, and apply a critical concept as a method to analyze a stereotype. Every paper must include analysis of your critical concept Describe and analyze a specific stereotype using your critical concept. Every paper must include a section describing a particular stereotype. Close read a specific cultural, historical, or social text that represents that stereotype. Every paper must introduce their cultural, social, or historical text and include close readings of your text using your critical concept. Make a specific claim that includes a critical concept, a stereotype, and a text. Every paper must analyze how a text represents a stereotype using your concept. Synthesize a Background and an Argument source as evidence into argue/support your claim. Every paper must adequately include and introduce (using the AB format) two outside sources other than Pickering’s critical essay and your cultural, social, or historical text . Build an argument in a well-organized and properly formatted paper. Every paper must have clear organization that connects all your points, evidence, and readings to each other and to your main claim that uses transitions to make the paper’s connections flow so readers can follow your argument. Every paper must include an introduction that states your claim (your concept, stereotype, and text) and a conclusion that does more than reiterate your argument. Every paper must include a Works Cited list and In-Text Citations of all textual evidence.
