Guidelines for the conference paper's first draft, due January 28

Proofread and copyedit your work, and number the pages. Then proofread and copyedit your work again, including the documentation. To document the paper, follow the rules and templates found in Rampolla's Pocket Guide, on sale at the bookstore and on reserve at the campus library. Incomplete or incorrect documentation renders a paper unacceptable. And did I mention that you need to proofread and copyedit the paper?

The Writing Center can help you with these tasks. Contact Carol Zoref, the center's director, at czoref@sarahlawrence.edu.

HAND IN TWO HARD COPIES OF THE PAPER AND EMAIL THE WORK TO THE WHOLE SEMINAR, INCLUDING PM.

FIRST DRAFTS WILL BE DISCUSSED BY THE WHOLE SEMINAR ON FEBRUARY 4 AND 11.

Updated prospectus and bibliography, due February 26
- Restate or revise the central question that informs your conference project and your thesis in reply to that question: What's the main argument plan to make in your final draft?

- Comment on your project's significance: Why is your topic important, and how will you expand on what other people have said about it?

- 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 argument, 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, but only those you'll use as you write the paper's final draft.

HAND IN ONE HARD COPY.
