HIST 440-010, Historical Method Fall 2010, Dr. Guthrie General Guidelines for Research Paper TOPICS Topics must be selected from the attached list and then further refined into a realistic project. For example, the topic “African-Americans During the Great Depression” is way too broad for you to do a decent job. What I want you to do is select a discreet and manageable subject from within one of these general topics. For example, you could select “African-American Migration to Dallas, Texas During the Great Depression,” or “Did the Scottsboro Boys Get A Fair Trial,” or “The Impact of the New Deal on African-American Workers in Chicago.” I must approve whatever topic you select before you can begin work on it. SOURCES You must employ a minimum of twelve sources for your paper and at least two of them must be primary sources. No more than three of your sources can be from the Internet. I must also approve all of your sources. STYLISTIC RULES

Unformatted text preview: Each paper must have a title page which contains your name, the date the paper is handed in, the title of the paper, and the name and number of this class. Papers must be between 12-15 pages long. Papers shorter or longer than this will not be accepted. Margins must be one inch on all sides. The paper must be double-spaced in a 12 point font. Footnotes can either be at the bottom of the page or at the end but, in either case, they must be in the proper format or the paper will not be accepted. The paper must also include a bibliography in the proper format. The bibliography (and title page) does not count toward the length of the paper. Since this is a writing intensive class, organization, spelling, grammar, syntax, etc. will all count towards your grade on this paper. Please consult Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (7 th Edition) on any questions regarding style and format....
