200 words research paper proposal
The research paper assignment is an opportunity for students to research and write about a theme of their choice in the history of race and ethnicity in Canada to 1900. There are two components to the research paper assignment. Students are required to submit a research proposal and a working annotated bibliography. Your proposal should be 100-200 words (double spaced) and provide a clear description of the theme or focus of your research paper. What do you want to learn about? What questions do you want to answer? The bibliography should list a minimum of the five non-course-based academic secondary sources (books, book chapters, journal articles, etc.) and provide a short description of each title demonstrating how each will contribute to your research. For citations and bibliography, students are required to follow the History Department Style Guide: https://www.uvic.ca/humanities/history/assets/docs/styleguide.pdf
The proposal and bibliography will provide me with an opportunity to offer feedback and suggestions to strengthen your work. If you need help at any stage of your process, please send me an email and come see me. It would be my pleasure to help you find a topic, narrow down your topic, and find relevant sources.
