ENGL 2130 Annotated Bibliography

Compose an annotated bibliography of 15 sources focused on a more specific topic in Beloved or Tracks or both. The spreadsheet of research assignment signups is available here.

At least 8 of your sources should be academic (authored by a scholar, published in an academic journal, making an academic argument, at least 7 pages in length, and including a bibliography); the remaining sources should maintain a high standard of credibility and originating from journalistic or non-profit media. Remember that sources need not mention the novels as long as the source addresses an idea or fact that helps a reader understand the novel better (for example a source that addresses the Fugitive Slave Act or Bureau of Indian Affairs).

After the heading and title, the assignment should include an introductory paragraph defining the topic that you’re focusing on and why you choose it.

Citations should be formatted using MLA.

Annotations follow the same format as research tasks on a CRA; they should be 100-150 words, should summarize the source, quote from it, and explain the relevance of the source to your topic.
