Conference paper: first draft due Monday, February 4; final draft due Monday, April 22

Proofread and copyedit your paper--both the first and the final drafts. The Writing Center can provide help as you address these tasks and other aspects of the paper. Contact Carol Zoref, the center's director, at czoref@sarahlawrence.edu. Regarding documentation (notes and bibliography), follow the rules outlined in Mary Lynn Rampolla's Pocket Guide to Writing in History, on sale at the bookstore and on reserve at the campus library. Undocumented or poorly documented work is unacceptable.

FOR BOTH THE FIRST AND THE FINAL DRAFTS, HAND IN TWO HARD COPIES OF THE PAPER AND EMAIL THE WORK TO THE WHOLE SEMINAR, INCLUDING PM.

Guidelines for the updated prospectus and bibliography, due Monday, March 4

- Restate or revise the central question that informs your conference project and your thesis in reply to that question:  What's the main point you wish to make in your final draft?

- Comment on the significance of your project: Why is your topic important, and what distinguishes your paper fom other writing on the topic, in particular the secondary sources in your bibliography?

- Summarize your research agenda for the spring term:  What, exactly, remains to be done?  Are there things you need to find out before you can be sure of your central question, your thesis, and why they matter?  Does your latest thinking about conceptual and analytic issues require changes in the reading/research plan you mapped out in the fall?  Must you alter the plan on account of logistical problems?  If you need to do off-campus research, what arrangements have you made?

- Include a revised bibliography--not every relevant text you've identified; just those you'll consult as you write the paper's final draft.

HAND IN ONE HARD COPY AN EMAIL THE WORK TO PM AND YOUR CONFERENCE GROUP.
