ave a TITLE, and be STAPLED prior to submission.
➢ Make sure to include YOUR NAME ON THE FRONT PAGE.
➢ Full apparatus of footnotes, bibliography, and correctly labeled illustrations is required.
This is how books are quoted correctly in the footnotes/endnotes:
Barbara Student, I Love Mona Lisa, 2 vols. (Baton Rouge: LSU Press, 2005),
1:210-250. [Notice the structure: Author, Book Title, # vols. (Place: Press name, Date), vol. #:Pages. You only need to indicate volumes if your publications has more than one volume! If there is only one volume, omit this information]
This is how articles are quoted correctly in the footnotes/endnotes:
John Student, “Why Mona Lisa Smiles: A Theurgical Interpretation,”
International Mona Lisa Studies 20, no. 3 (June/July 1995):12-15.
[Notice the structure: Author/Article Title in “”/Journal Title/Volume/Issue Number/(Year):pages]
This is how a correct bibliographical entry at the end of the paper entry should look like:
Student, Barbara. I Love Mona Lisa. 2 vols. Baton Rouge: LSU Press, 2005.
Notice the difference to footnote: you now list the last name first.
This is how an artwork is correctly labeled:
Fig. 2 Kanaga Mask, Dogon, Bandiagara, Mali, before 1931, wood, pigment, fibres (Paris, Quai Branly Museum, inv. 71.1931.49.24)
DO NOT FORGET TO NUMBER YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS AND TO REFER TO THEM BY THAT NUMBER IN THE TEXT OF YOUR PAPER!
For example, your sentence may read: “The Kanaga Mask of the Dogon (Fig. 2)
symbolizes a lizard.” You will then have a picture of the mask, either embedded in the text or at the end of your paper with a label as shown above.
➢ Illustrations and cover page do not apply towards minimum page count
➢ A first draft of the papers will be due in class on March 16. I expect you to discuss the draft of your paper with the staff of the CxC lab on the first floor of the Design Bldg. prior to submitting it. Location: 104-A Design Bldg. To make appointments for writing support from CxC for your research papers, please go to the following link: http://www.lsu.edu/academicaffairs/cxc/writing.php
Revise the first draft according to my suggestions. Depending on the quality of your draft, I may require you to consult with the staff at the CxC lab on the first floor of the Design Bldg. prior to submitting the final version. Location: 104-A Design Bldg. To make appointments for writing support from CxC for your research papers, please go to the following link: http://www.lsu.edu/academicaffairs/cxc/writing.php
➢ Final, revised papers will be due in class on April 20.
➢ The first drafts must be re-submitted with the final, revised papers so that I can make an informed judgment about your editing job. Failure to submit the first draft along with the final paper will result in a conversion of your draft score to a “0.”
➢ In case of doubt, consult the Chicago Style Manual, or see me for the proper editing of the text
➢ No internet quotes or references in footnotes, please. Instead, LIBRARY RESEARCH IS REQUIRED (exception: electronic books in LSU’s on-line library catalogue, tools mentioned below). Use BHA (see tools below) to locate relevant articles. Beware that copying and pasting text passages from the internet and passing them on as your own constitutes PLAGIARISM, which will be treated accordingly (grade of 0 for assignment, sanctions as outlined in the LSU Student Code of Conduct – for details, see: http://appl003.lsu.edu/grad/gradschool.nsf/$Content/Quick+Facts/$file/
