ENGLISH 4013—J ANE AUSTEN : ASSIGNMENTS CLOSE R EADING A SSIGNMENTS : Due (in class): 23 February; 29 March; 15 April Length: 3-4 pages (12 pt font, double-spaced) Format: Hard copy and upload to D2L Weight: 30% (10% each) Penalty for Lateness: 3% per day of lateness (weekends counting as one day). Three times over the course of the term you will be required to submit a close reading exercise. You will be offered a short passage from one of Austen’s novels (you can choose your own passage if you prefer) and you will be required to explicate it. Each response will require a thesis. RESEARCH PAPER : Due (in class): 10 May Length: 10 pages (12 pt font, double-spaced) Format: Hard copy and upload to D2L Weight: 30% Penalty for Lateness: 3% per day of lateness (weekends counting as one day). The goal of this project is to develop your ability as a writer of sustained research papers. You will work on a single paper over the course of the term, submitting several smaller assignments, a medium-sized draft, and a final paper of 10 pages. It is important to recognize that your research interests are likely going to evolve as you get to know Austen better, and as you explore the specific paper topic. You may at some point decide to focus on a different text or you might conceive of an entirely different subject. That’s fine. Furthermore, Dr. Anderson or Dr. Garofalo might intervene over the course of the term to suggest a different approach if they have reservations about your argument or its scope. You don’t have to commit long term to the subject you choose for the initial assignment but you would certainly be advised to choose a subject that you are genuinely interested in and that you think could prove to be a worthwhile subject. Grammar and sentence mechanics will be graded rigorously. There will be a 5% penalty for essays submitted without a bibliography. The papers should follow MLA format (see the guidelines). If you have further questions about format consult a copy of the MLA style manual from the library. Possible topics that are central to the critical conversation:  Economic issues  The thematic significance of a recurring image  Gender relations  Austen and Religion  Landscape and its social/political significance  The French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars  And many others to choose from… We would strongly suggest that you talk to either of us at some point in the process, perhaps several times over the course of the semester. Cases of plagiarism or academic dishonesty will be dealt with severely. All essays will be run through and the minimum penalty for cheating will be a mark of zero on the assignment in question and a record in your university file. For information on the university’s policy on academic integrity and what constitutes plagiarism, see Late Penalty: 3% per day (weekends counting as one day). R ESEARCH ASSIGNMENT : Due (in class): 9 February Weight: 10% Length: Two to three pages, single-spaced Format: Hard copy This assignment is designed to develop your research skills and to help you think about how secondary research should be incorporated into a literary argument. Choose an essay topic that interests you. You do not have to stick with it throughout the semester, though obviously it will be help if your initial research is on roughly the same topic you will eventually write about. Using the MLA database, choose three refereed journal articles or scholarly book chapters. They should either be about the novel you are going to write on or the subject you want to discuss. At least two of the pieces must have been published after 2000. You must provide bibliographical information for all three articles. Discuss each article on one single-spaced page (max). You should cover the following headings individually: 1) Define the author’s subject 2) Explain his approach 3) Explain his methodology: Historical? Formalist? Psychoanalytic? Marxist? Feminist? Gender studies? 4) Explain his conclusions. 5) Explain how it speaks to your topic. NB—In all of the assignments only credible scholarly sources will be accepted. This means published books (or chapters of books) or articles from peer-reviewed journals. Assignments that include entries from, for instance, will receive a mark of zero. O UTLINE AND BIBLIOGRAPHY : Due (in class): 22 March Weight: 10% Length: 1-2 pages single-spaced for the outline. No page limit for the bibliography. Format: Hard copy This assignment requires you to outline the argument for a prospective paper and produce a short annotated bibliography. Your essay outline should cover the following areas under separate headings: 1) Describe your topic: the question you hope the paper will solve. 2) Describe the primary texts of Austen that you want to focus on. 3) Offer a working thesis [NB—a working thesis does not have to be as specific as a final thesis, but it should still define the argument you intend to make as clearly as possible] 4) A breakdown of the major sections of your argument (one to three sentences for each one). 5) An annotated bibliography with a minimum of eight secondary sources. The annotations should briefly (but meaningfully) discuss the critic’s argument and approach (50-100 words). There can be some overlap between these sources and those chosen for the research assignment. At least four of the sources must have been published since 2000.
