Objective: The purpose of this assignment is to practice synthesizing and investigating foundational readings in Gender and Women’s Studies.
Assignment: A literature review is less about proving an argument than it is about demonstrating your familiarity with a field. For your final project, you will be completing a literature review to demonstrate your understanding of some of the major writing and conversations in Women’s and Gender Studies. You will work on this paper/project in phases. Think of a literature review as a focused exploration of a specific question or line of questioning that you see occurring across various sources: how are the writers we have read thinking about masculinity? Embodiment? Ableness? The intersectional experience of black women? The connections between gender and language? Etc... Your job, as the author here, is less to create a unique argument than to diagnose what the important conversations in the field are and to connect how different thinkers have approached and answered key questions. You should include at least 5 sources from throughout the semester into your paper.
a. Part 1—Establish your Territory: Identify your territory: what kinds of issues will your literature review be exploring and what writers/thinkers will you be including.
b. Part 2—Identify your Question: What key question(s) will your literature review be exploring?
c. Part 3—Explain the Importance of your Question: Identify why your question is an important one to explore
2. Body (PEAS paragraphs)
a. Each Paragraph should include at least 3 thinkers (you can repeat thinkers across paragraphs if it is relevant to your conversation).
• Remember that I will be looking for PEAS in your body paragraphs (meaning all paragraphs that are not your Intro or your Conclusion). Please also color-code your PEAS components as follows.
o Point (red): [first 1-2 sentences] Identify the specific conversation you will be exploring in this paragraph and how it connects to your question.
o Evidence (green): Support your summary by quoting from both texts and referencing our class discussions.
o Analysis (blue): Be sure you are taking the time to tie your evidence back to your point. What are the connections between your sources (do they agree, disagree, a bit of both, fill in gaps, raise important concerns, etc…; what would you add to their conversation? [Remember to intermix your E and A….It shouldn’t be GIANT BLOCK OF E then GIANT BLOCK OF A. Go back and forth between the two]
o So What? (purple): [last 1-2 sentences] What should we do now? What would you like to see happen to move this conversation forward? Why is this conversation meaningful? What are the limits or potentials of this conversation?
a. Part 1—Restate your Question & Its Importance
b. Part 2—Big So What!? –get into what we could now do because we have looked at this question. What are the limitations of how people have asked these questions? What would you add to this conversation? What should we do now?
