Annotated Bibliography Assignment Custom Essay

n addition to providing bibliographic information, an annotated bibliography briefly summarizes the argument of a book or article and assesses its value or relevance. This assignment, therefore, will help you finalize the research for your major paper and choose sources that are both focused and useful to your research paper.

 

For this assignment students will cite full biographical details of their 6 secondary sources (book or journal articles) and then make a short (3 to 4 sentence) note of what the book/journal article is about and how the source will be used in the final paper. The annotated bibliography should be no longer than 2 pages in length, type-written in acceptable font (i.e. Times New Roman 12 ppt.) single spaced, and adhere to a proper bibliographic format – APA, MLA, and Chicago are acceptable.

Take this assignment seriously! Thorough research and a good understanding of the topic under investigation will allow me to give you advice on your research and recommend sources for your final paper. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade

Assignments will be returned to students via e-mail attachment on/or before Friday, March 7th.

Below is an example of an annotated bibliography in Chicago format.

Hartmann, Heidi. “The Historical Roots of Occupational Segregation: Capitalism, Patriarchy, and

Job Segregation by Sex,” Signs. 1:3 Part 2 (Spring 1976), 1937-169.

In “the Historical Roots of Occupational Segregation: Capitalism, Patriarchy, and Job Segregation by Sex,” Heidi Hartmann argues that the present status of women in the labour market and the current arrangement of sex-segregated jobs is the result of a long process of interaction between patriarchy and capitalism (167). Hartmann comes to this conclusion by examining the anthropology and history of patriarchal systems and techniques of hierarchical organization and control in both primitive cultures and in twentieth-century society. Writing from a material feminist perspective, Hartmann’s argument not only contrasts with traditional neoclassical and Marxist economists but also investigates important questions in the sexual division of both wage and domestic labour. Hartmann’s analysis of technological change is essential for placing my research within the proper historiographical debates concerning women‘s skilled wage labour.

Summarizing the argument of a source:

An annotation briefly restates the main argument of a source. An annotation of an academic source, for example, typically identifies its thesis (or research question, or hypothesis), its major methods of investigation, and its main conclusions. Keep in mind that identifying the argument of a source is a different task than describing or listing its contents. Rather than listing contents (see Example 1 below), an annotation should account for why the contents are there (see Example 2 below).

Example 1: Only lists contents:

McIvor, S. D. (1995). Aboriginal women’s rights as “existing rights.” Canadian Woman Studies/Les Cahiers de la Femme 2/3, 34-38.

This article discusses recent constitutional legislation as it affects the human rights of aboriginal women in Canada: the Constitution Act (1982), its amendment in 1983, and amendments to the Indian Act (1985). It also discusses the implications for aboriginal women of the Supreme Court of Canada’s interpretation of the Constitution Act in R. v. Sparrow (1991).

Example 2: Identifies the argument:

McIvor, S. D. (1995). Aboriginal women’s rights as “existing rights.” Canadian Woman Studies/Les Cahiers de la Femme 2/3, 34-38.

 

This article seeks to define the extent of the civil and political rights returned to aboriginal women in the Constitution Act (1982), in its amendment in 1983, and in amendments to the Indian Act (1985).* This legislation reverses prior laws that denied Indian status to aboriginal women who married non-aboriginal men. On the basis of the Supreme Court of Canada’s interpretation of the Constitution Act in R. v. Sparrow (1991), McIvor argues that the Act recognizes fundamental human rights and existing aboriginal rights, granting to aboriginal women full participation in the aboriginal right to self-government.** This article is useful to my research paper [state the reasons why the source is useful keeping in mind the thesis statement of the paper].
