Bibliography (at least 4 sources from the syllabus, listed in a separate page)


Author’s name, Book Title (City: Publisher, year).

Author’s name, “article title,” Journal Title, volume #, issue # (year), pp. #-#.

Keywords are central ideas you discuss in your paper. Sample keywords include: market, modernity, romance, value, woman, and the like. 4 keywords must be listed upfront below the title of your paper.

4 required sources refer to different works by authors listed in the syllabus. Again, a chapter in an edited volume counts as one source. All chapters in a single-authored book (like mine) count as 1 source. 2 books by the same authors (like mine) count as 2 sources.

Sources not listed in the syllabus are considered additional to 4 required sources but do not give you extra credit.
